Wired is reporting that Steve Jobs had a town hall meeting with Apple employees late last week following the launch of their latest creation, the iPad.
At the town hall meeting, he is rumored to have spoken on quite a few topics such as rivalry with Google, reason for not supporting Adobe Flash, the next generation iPhone, regarding Lala’s acquisition, New Macs in 2010 and more.
He made the following comments about Apple’s rivalry with Google:
We did not enter the search business. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them.
He gave the following reason for not supporting Adobe Flash in iPhone OS, which has been quite controversial:
Apple does not support Flash because it is so buggy, he says. Whenever a Mac crashes more often than not it’s because of Flash. No one will be using Flash, he says. The world is moving to HTML5.
MacRumors is reporting that in addition to these main topics, he also informed his employees that:
Apple will deliver aggressive updates to iPhone that Android/Google won't be able to keep up with
iPad is up there with the iPhone and Mac as the most important products Jobs has been a part of
Regarding the Lala acquisition, Apple was interested in bringing those people into the iTunes team
Next iPhone coming is an A+ update
New Macs for 2010 are going to take Apple to the next level
Blu-Ray software is a mess, and Apple will wait until sales really start to take off before implementing it.
It will be interesting to see how Adobe reacts to these remarks. We also can’t wait to see the next generation iPhone.
