Sadly, so few judges have a good understanding of how computer technology works and so are likely to make rulings based on misinformation and misunderstanding.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. This matter is a long, long way from having any judges involved. My understanding of the procedure is that complaints filed with the FTC must result in some investigation and response. This means the staff lawyers have to look over the evidence and make a recommendation to the commission. I predict that the FTC will boot this complaint to kingdom come.

Also ill-informed is your notion that national health care of some sort is unconstitutional.

Excuse me, Wu. I was just being polite. If you don't know or understand the reasoning behind the idea that a mandatory national health care plan is unconstitutional, I invite you to do your own research.

Crap apps can appear on either, a $100 brush doesn´t a artist make. A good artist can use any tool, the talent is in the hands, just that they are better with better tools.

This is not about quality, this is about the war on Flash. Because the process of abolishing Flash doesn´t improve the quality of crappy apps made according to Apple´s directions.

Apple should have never gotten into the App Store business and closed their devices, they should have made the devices open and restrict things in the iPhone OS instead.

There are nearly 200,000 crap apps on the App Store, only a small portion are made by Flash, so how is Steve going to attempt to improve the quality of those apps?

Love Steve, but I smell sh*t and it stinks.

I'm glad to see that someone is looking at all of the evidence somewhat objectively and trying to be rational. Every post I read on this thread seems to blame Flash for all of the world's evil's. No doubt you can make crappy apps that perform poorly... but that is absolutely true of lots of apps on Apple's store.

The notion that banning Flash is going to improve the quality of the apps is a sick joke.
