Yes, Jobs concentrated on what affected Macs.

But I dont remember Flash being used so much as a malware entry vector.

Well, i mean that the train seemed to stop at their station more during then.

They had some big creative tools (and still do) where there was no good alternatives.

They user base didnt have another good alternative then, as I said. The security problems has not really shown up at that point.

But they do have alternatives now.

Re: HTML5
Quite true on his vision.

But, at the time, HTML5 was not a viable alternative for a lot of people.

And, again at the time, it was viewed by many as just another shot at Adobe after the FontWars.

Well, maybe upper management didn't want them to change.

I mean, the suits thought it worked.
