Comment: Bigger than Flash, maybe PDF is the key? (Score 1) 789

This perhaps reflects Adobe-Apple tensions that may have begun when Apple elected to use Adobe's "portable document format" as it if it were a truly open standard. I don't know how Adobe lost control of PDF, but since then, it has done everything in its power to reassert control over that by creating new versions with features that attempt to make previous versions incompatible, at least with Adobe's own software. So in my view, Adobe created a capable open standard and then did everything they could think of to interfere with its use in that mode.

I'm probably quite naive about all this, but If Apple learned from that experience never to again play with Adobe again, one can hardly blame them.

Despite the "greening" of the Vatican, it has has been quite vocal condemning pantheism, especially in its review of the movie Avatar. Pantheists are reacting to this criticism, and urging the Vatican to open up to the importance of caring for our planet."
