    Adobe CEO 'Reconciles' With Apple; Can't Answer Why Poor Flash Support on Android


    A recent interview with Adobe CEO, Shantanu Narayen, seems to indicate that the Apple vs. Adobe mud-slinging war over Flash has reached a "Non-Aggression Pact". The two companies have "reconciled" to a certain degree over their differences in design philosophy. Basically, Narayen conceded that their open-ended approach with Adobe Flash is different than, and mostly incompatible with, Apple's tight controls on software apps. He also added that Adobe is looking forward to "actively contributing" to the ongoing development of HTML5.

    The interview really gets interesting when moderator Walt Mossberg, puts Narayen on the spot about the fact that Flash runs so poorly on the Android OS. Here's a quote from the Engadget article,
    Mossberg, meanwhile, seemed to blindside Narayen when he brought up Flash's poor performance on Android devices. "I have yet to test a single one where Flash tests really well," the columnist claimed. "I'm sorry, but it's true." Narayen sputtered a bit, before pointing to the BlackBerry PlayBook as an example of the progress that Flash has made. When Mossberg reminded him that the PlayBook doesn't run on Android, the CEO not-so-subtly sidestepped the question by emptily declaring that Adobe's mission is simply to provide people with the best tools to create content.
    I guess some CEO's are also decent politicians, as that was a perfect way to dance around the topic and leave it with a true "non-answer." Also, do you get the feeling that Mr. Narayen, doesn't really know his companies products very well?

    Poor Android support, clinging to a dying OS, sucking up to Apple, blah blah blah.

    So, in short, this was a typical CEO conference? Gotcha. Going back to sleep now and dreaming of a world where companies stop ditching Apple's competitors as soon as the Apple starts kissing to make up.
