Steve Jobs’ open letter on Flash

The internet is abuzz today over this open letter from Steve Jobs about Flash. Many think it’s interesting that Steve has chosen this issue to write about and not other Apple-related issues, like control in the App store, and the 4-gen iPhone theft. I think it’s interesting to compare this to Job’s last open letter against DRM on music.

In both cases, it seems to me that Jobs isn’t writing to defend Apple as much as he is explaining Apple’s position on a certain technology. He is sending a message to business partners to follow his lead.
