When Jobs made the decision to disallow Flash on the iPhone, there were no third-party apps. Period. There wasn't even a jailbreak, since he made the decision prior to the release of the original iPhone. So, his decision had nothing to do with the App Store, since it didn't exist.

Comment "Commodore PC"? Really? (Score 3, Informative) 456

She dropped the computer off for recycling. If you throw out a bunch of stuff, and unbeknownst to you there is a mint copy of Action Comics #1 in that stuff, them once you throw it out it is no longer yours. In fact, the local municipaloty may have a stronger claim than you do in such a case.

I have no sympathy for her if she tries to push for more than the $100,0000. She's lucky the recycling center is ethical enough to offer it to her, as they're otherwise not obligated to give her a penny.

Real Programs don't use shared text. Otherwise, how can they use functions for scratch space after they are finished calling them?
