I love to see a title that addresses "issues".  What an obfuscation!  Seems to me it could just as easily say, "problems".

Hi Reuben - Thanks for posting this. I've been following the fight since the iPad surprised me with its rejection of flash - I personally feel that it has been a minor issue for me, but with problems with acrobat and photoshop, it just got a lot more serious - at least for me.

Dick, I feel the same way. The Flash battle seemed to be tit-for-tat... Big deal that iPads don't run flash! Flash takes up too much processing speed anyway. Plus, theirs a better alternative, HTML5; which I think is smoother and cleaner. But why go so far to kink the Adobe suite? The main reason I switched from PC to Mac was because of the fluid use of Adobe products: Acrobat Pro, Photoshop, and Illustrator. These are the main programs I rely on to make my products and create marketing for real estate. I've been waiting to upgrade to a newer version of Macbook Pros, but now I'm starting to reconsider. It's a shame this is happening. I hope they resolve their issues asap... otherwise, I might end up going back to PC (eeeek).
