Steve Jobs action figure no longer available!

Steve Jobs action figure for the win!

 

 

Michael Gray of The Unofficial Apple Weblog, reports that the company who produced the action figure, M.I.C. Gadget, has reported that they received a request from Apple to cease production because they did not first obtain permission from Apple to use their copyrights and trademarks.

I agree with Gray that this action figure was pretty cool as far as action figures go, with the attention to detail they gave the figure. Lets hope that maybe Apple and them get this worked out in a mutual beneficial way in the future.

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.”
