Apple just banned some versions of Adobe Flash from its computers


With his “Thoughts on Flash” letter back in early 2010, late Apple CEO Steve Jobs waged a war on Adobe that the media couldn’t get enough of.

Thanks to the war Jobs waged, two things have happened in recent years: Flash has become far less popular as better technologies moved in to replace it, and the Flash platform has improved.

Improved though it may be, Flash still has some serious issues. We got a painful reminder of that last week when Adobe confirmed a very serious security flaw that was actively being used in attacks.
