Report: Adobe Prepping Lawsuit Against Apple

Unless you've been away on a nice long holiday since January and somehow missed the entire iPad/Flash/Steve Jobs/Adobe saga then you'll know there's a little bit of bad butter between Apple and Adobe.

In a nutshell, Steve says Flash is rubbish and the main reason Macs crash; Adobe says it's ready to work with Apple on bringing Flash to the iPad and the iPhone but Apple doesn't want to cooperate. The most recent development saw Apple change its iPhone SDK license agreement. iPhone 4.0 developers can only use Apple's certified tools, meaning the upcoming Flash CS5 software that will compile iPhone-compatible apps is pretty much a no-go.

Understandably, Adobe is a little annoyed by the whole situation. According to ITWorld, the company is seriously considering take Apple to court over the issue. While ITWorld admits that officially, the company isn't talking about anything of the sort, they cite sources close to the company that say Adobe will be suing Apple within a few weeks.

Stay tuned for more on this one. Something tells us it's going to drag on for a long, long time.

    If Adobe leaves the Mac platform, then 75% of Apples business is gone.
