image thumb27 Apple Hates Adobe And The Hate Is There To Stay – But I Am With Adobe!

Whenever you are angered or enraged at anything and the War can’t be fought face to face, the best place then is Facebook. Forget support for a good cause and be mean; rally your supporters against the tyranny of one or many, bring it on Facebook Adobe has done that, unofficially.

Given the latest development in the Adobe/Apple saga and Steve Jobs’ harsh words and an iron will to never let Adobe come close to any product of Apple: iPad, iPhone and… the iPad. You heard or should I say read it right – Never.

image thumb90 Tata Adobe! Mike Downey heads over to Microsoft, focus will be Silverlight

After serving Adobe for almost a decade, Mike Downey thinks its time to side with competition. He has joined Microsoft and his job focuses on Silverlight, the Adobe Flash competitor. The reason for his departure is that he wants to be a part of the evolution process of the Web and not a part of a system that appears to be now complete to a certain extent if not all. Interesting and quite justified, we have seen many execs, veterans do the same as they always feel the urge to be a part of a growing entity rather than sit firm in a place that has reached the maximum or at least close to it.

What’s the better way for a firm to cut its cost? Lay off employees, wreck their lives or follow Adobe.

This shut down is one of the three planned for the current year with the first already taking place in April.
