Steve Jobs had a huge impact, and Adobe is one concern that is feeling it now. Jobs famously rejected Flash for the iPad, a critical blow to Adobe's reputation. Meanwhile Microsoft is sending out serious signals that Flash is a flash in the pan and the future is HTML 5 -- supported now in IE and set to be the core of Windows 8's Metro apps.
Taken together, these two tech titans are laying the smackdown on Adobe, which announced it is laying off 750 people, killing off the mobile version of Adobe Flash Player and making its own move towards HTML 5.
Flash lives, but Adobe is now aiming it at graphics-intensive Web apps -- not as a broad-based, long-term Web graphics infrastructure.
