Adobe Evangelist Lashes Out Over Apple’s “Original Language” Policy

An anonymous reader writes “Apple’s recent decision to restrict the languages that may be used for iPhone and iPad development has provoked some invective from Adobe’s platform evangelist Lee Brimelow. He writes on TheFlashBlog, ‘This has nothing to do whatsoever with bringing the Flash player to Apple’s devices. That is a separate discussion entirely. What they are saying is that they won’t allow applications onto their marketplace solely because of what language was originally used to create them. This is a frightening move that has no rational defense other than wanting tyrannical control over developers and more importantly, wanting to use developers as pawns in their crusade against Adobe. This does not just affect Adobe but also other technologies like Unity3D.’ He ends his post with, ‘Speaking purely for myself, I would look to make it clear what is going through my mind at the moment. Go screw yourself Apple. Comments disabled as I’m not interested in hearing from the Cupertino Comment SPAM bots.’”
