• Apple: No Preinstalled Flash on Macs

    On Friday, Apple issued an official statement regarding the issue of preinstalled Adobe Flash on the freshly unveiled MacBook Air.

    According to Apple, Flash will not come preinstalled on Macs as a way to best ensure that users will not be deprived of the latest version of Flash. Instead, Mac users are encouraged to download the latest from Adobe. Similarly, all future Macs will come without Adobe Flash pre-installed. Apple spokesman Bill Evans reportedly stated the following to Engadget:

    "We're happy to continue to support Flash on the Mac, and the best way for users to always have the most up to date and secure version is to download it directly from Adobe."
    Despite the rocky relationship between Apple and Adobe, the two seem destined to co-exist (peacefully or otherwise) for the time being. The fresh headlines speaking to the role of Flash on Macs comes after many biting comments from Steve Jobs, not the least of which was the claim that Flash is the primary culprit of crashes on the Mac.
