MBA: Flash isn’t missing, it wasn’t forgotten [u]

October 22, 2010

The brouhaha over the fact that Apple’s new MacBook Air doesn’t include Adobe Flash? There’s no controversy here at all as the mothership has decided, just like it has with Java, not to install the software at the factory.

So, Apple shipped a pair of new MacBook Airs on Wednesday, they arrived sans Adobe Flash. This caused the haters to howl, as they are wont to do, with derision.

Well, Engadget has the real scoop and they got straight from the horse’s mouth. Actually, they got it from the horse’s mouth’s spokesman.

“We’re happy to continue to support Flash on the Mac, and the best way for users to always have the most up to date and secure version is to download it directly from Adobe,” writes Bill Evans, Apple spokesman.

[u] Further, according to MacRumors, Apple won’t be installing Flash on any new Macs.

You see?!? Apple isn’t doing anything nasty or underhanded toward Adobe (screw them!) because it’s just smarter to let users get their own copy of insecure, resource gobbling, there goes (imagine the sound of a toilet flushing) Safari-Chrome-Firefox again Flash. Users and their good friends at Adobe know best…

What’s your take?

    Good riddance to Flash!

    Apple washes itself of any responsibility for all the security problems, crashes, etc. from Flash. Apple handed the full responsibility of this to Adobe.

    Realize that Microsoft DOES NOT BUNDLE FLASH with WINDOWS VISTA or WINDOWS 7.

    So why all the hoopla, when Microsoft, itself, stopped bundling Flash years ago????????

    In French we say “a storm in a glass of water” … and that’s exactly what it is !
    Trying to hide Mac OS X future features and all the others behind a smoke screen because they don’t have anything to compare to it … sad (for the “them”,the “others”) !
