I could not find a point of view that could illustrate so well how I feel about those whiners (Adobe, are you listening !) that Apple is hurting customer because they refuse to support Adobe's Flash:
As this blog post from Ian Samuel puts it:
"The simple effect of the new SDK is to announce, loud and clear, that developers who want to write iPhone and iPad software have to do it the iPhone and iPad way. You are supposed to use Xcode and Objective C and Webkit, just like Apple does. You are supposed to use Cocoa Touch and borrow the user interface metaphors that Apple has helpfully illustrated in their own apps. If you do anything else, Apple is going to try and stop you. That means no cross-compiling other languages; no cross-platform frameworks like Qt; nothing. Stop trying to get out of writing real iPhone apps, Apple seems to be saying."
