Ghost of Adobe past visits Apple: Co-founders exhumed to join the wailing

Tough love–or irony–seems to be the theme, with the ad opening with a big “We [heart] Apple” and continuing with a reprimand about Apple’s position on Flash, which Adobe claims in a bit of bloviatory grandstanding is a threat to freedom and the evolution of the Web.

Whining, blog entries, ads, and dragging in old friends (enemies?). If Adobe spent half as much time making better business decisions they might not even be in this mess.

Even more pathetic than the war of words is that Adobe finally being able to capture mobile Flash in a demo where it’s not crashing is considered a plus. It’s already at least two years too late, yet demoing it on mondo hardware without it freezing is a big deal? How the mighty (expectations) have fallen.
