Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen wanted to work with Apple, he really did. But Apple didn't want to work with them. These things happen!
Here's the full quote, from an interview with the Telegraph:
Apple made some statements about the suitability of our technology for mobile devices. I think we've proven that the technology is not only suitable but it actually significantly enhances the value on these mobile devices. They've chosen to keep their system closed and we'd rather work with partners who are interested in working with us. We believe in open systems. We believe in the power of the internet and in customers making choices and I think a lot of the controversy was about their decision at that point. They've made their choice. We've made ours and we've moved on. It's a business decision. With the energy and innovation that our company has, we'd rather focus on people who want to deliver the best experience with Flash and there are so many of them.
