Yesterday, we reported that Adobe’s Chief Technology Officer Kevin Lynch will be leaving the company to serve as Apple’s new VP of Technology – a decision that has raised a lot of eyebrows, due to Lynch’s highly vocal campaign against Apple a few years back regarding Adobe Flash Player on iOS devices. Lynch even went as far as to wreak ultra-destructive havok on innocent iPhones to illustrate his point, as shown in the below video linked by Daring Fireball.
The steamroller might have been overkill. I hate seeing adults act like children just because they don’t get their own way – this is as bad or worse than any Anti-Apple fit Steve Ballmer has ever pitched. Hopefully Apple knew what they were doing when they chose to hire Lynch as a top-ranking executive – joining forces with the very company he rebelled against just a few short years ago…
Is it just me, or is this a really, really blatant ripoff of Discovery Channel’s MythBusters? Yikes.
