Adobe CEO rebutts Jobs' Flash comments (video)

Following Steve Jobs' open letter addressing Apple's stance on the controversy surrounding the lack of Flash in Apple's mobile products, Shantanu Narayen, CEO of Adobe, offered his rebuttal to The Wall Street Journal.

Flash fight! As we reported earlier Thursday, Steve Jobs released an open letter discussing Apple's stance on the controversy surrounding the lack of Flash in Apple's mobile products. Following this letter, The Wall Street Journal interviewed Shantanu Narayen, CEO of Adobe, who discussed the letter and offered his rebuttal.

Narayen describes Jobs' letter as an extraordinary attack, following with descriptions of Apple as a company that's using the idea of open standards as a smokescreen to legitimize its restrictiveness and closed nature. He describes every one of Jobs' statements as false.

The Journal has a small article highlighting the interview, and says the full video will be available after 4 p.m. EDT on the site's News Hub. Beware, the video requires Flash!
