Apple CEO Steve Jobs, in a 29-paragraph open letter posted Thursday on the company website, detailed six "major technical drawbacks" of Adobe Systems' Flash video software. The letter was the latest criticism of Adobe by Apple, which claims its decision to not use Flash in its devices is because of technology flaws, not to gain a market advantage. However, an Adobe spokeswoman called Apple's technology complaints "a smokescreen" and said Apple was trying "to protect a business model that locks developers and consumers into a single, proprietary stack."
