teh31337one (1590023) writes "Steve Jobs just posted an open letter of sorts explaining Apple's position on Flash, going back to his company's long history of Adobe and expounding upon six main points of why he thinks Flash is wrong for mobile devices. HTML5 naturally comes up, along with a few reasons you might not expect. He concludes in saying that "Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice." Basically, it's for the olds. And you don't want to be old, do you?"

Its a good read, his point seem pretty valid, or at least nothing that wasn't expected.
