Apple May Face Inquiry Over Flash Compiler Ban

Article Comments  31

The New York Post is reporting that the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission are in negotiations to determine which agency will begin an antitrust inquiry into Apple's ban on Adobe's Flash compiler for iPhone OS apps. An inquiry determines whether a full antitrust investigation is necessary. Citing unnamed sources, the Post says that regulators are days away from an inquiry decision. Steve Jobs personally defended Apple's new policy in an essay posted on Apple.com's HotNews section.

Adobe's only hope

Honestly this is Adobe's only hope. Apple is singlehandedly killing Adobe's platform business. I think this is well deserved by Adobe.

Even if Android got its act together and became something resembling a unified platform, the entire advantage of Flash (write once publish everywhere) is gone. Also, the more Android integrates Flash, the less open it becomes.

Enjoy your party of one.

Flash seems to be alive and well on Android & Win7 Mobile.

You've got to be kidding me...

This is starting to get ridiculous. Apple's decision to not allow flash in their programing is their choice. I understand the sentiment comes from what seems like Apple's determination of getting rid of Flash completely and pushing towards HTML5 (which would leave Adobe without some serious money), but what Apple does with their products is their decision.
but i have to agree
It is about them requiring you to use apple tools to write apple apps. Their marketshare is getting quite large and if I have to buy a Mac to write an iphone app just because they say so and not because it is needed, that should sound illegal. They wo...

I agree with you on intervention. However, Steve Jobs is doing the same thing that Apple supporters do not want from the government. Dictatorship.

I say let Apple dictate to their customers what they will need to wait for rather than allow them to ...
(continues)
It's not them blocking flash, it's them blocking people from building an app in flash and then compiling it in native code

So if I don;t want to buy a car I should anyway because it will put people to work?? That makes no sense.

I agree.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, just... screw Apple.
But seriously, I have no idea why the Feds keep getting involved. First, they start a manhunt for an iPhone on Apple's behalf, now, they start an inquiry into Apple.

But still... screw Apple.

1 government agency is doing too much, and the other..

one government agency is doing too much, and the other agency is sleeping (SEC)!
when is SEC going to remove the discriminate 25,000$ day-trader rule?
if you have 25,000$ in your stock account, you are allow to daytrade (take profits) as many times as you wish!
but if you poor and dont have 25,000$, you only allow to daytrade 3 times in 5 days period!
that is like going to casino, if you bet 100$ per game, you can leave the table anytime!
but if you poor and bet 10$ a game, you not allow to leave the table until you played 8 hours??
