Adobe Calls Out Apple With Ads In NY Times, WSJ

profet Re:Right on Adobe! (731 comments)

This may be a flawed analogy, but wouldn't it be akin to a company releasing a car that only ran on diesel? That impedes all the companies that sell only "normal" gasoline. They're stifling competition! If you want to use "normal" gasoline, buy a car that runs on that.

That is more than flawed... its plain wrong.

Lets try and fix it.

It would be akin to a company releasing a car that only ran on diesel, preventing companies from creating diesel in unapproved ways (from algae, corn, discarded food products), and then having some approval process for checking diesel that would prevent certain companies from selling fuel for the car.

The reasons seem to be based primarily on cost of manufacturing. History has shown that the porn industry can be a driving factor for technology. Can bluray recover from such a tremendous blow? Does HD DVD have the market penetration that everyone claims?"
