Steve Jobs explains in detail why Flash is not on Apple mobile devices.

Holy cow! Doing something that he rarely does, Steve Jobs posted a letter to the Apple community on the Apple website that explains in minute detail every reason that Apple does not, and will not put Flash on Apple mobile devices including the iPhone, iPod, and iPad.


The war between Apple and Adobe just elevated to another level, if that were even possible.

Of particular interest was the last paragraph :

“New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too). Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind.”

Apple getting ready to Rock this morning.

Soon we will find out if Kevin Rose was right about his iTunes 8.0 prediction. We will also learn if  AppleInsider was correct with their prediction involving a new form factor for the iPod Classic, as well a new form factor for the iPod Shuffles (as well as three new colors).

If you want to follow the event live, EnGadget will be covering it in realtime here.


Apple Nano reboot

For the past few years Apple has announced new iPod and Nano versions every September with an eye towards galvanizing the holiday sales during November and December. This year seems to be shaping up the same as previous ones. This year’s event is rumored to take place September 9th.

Kevin Rose has inside information that suggests that the new Nano will be a surprising refresh that will excite many who were not that enamored with the “Fat Nano.”  Rose also insists that iTunes 8.0 will be released as well.

Over on YouTube, SoliderKnowsBest has this video clip in which he reveals that iTunes 8.0 may offer a new unlimited music subscription service.

It remains to be seen whether or not the new Macbook and Macbook Pro revisions will be unveiled at this event.
