According to Wired and several other media outlets, Steve Jobs held a town hall meeting with Apple employees sometime late last week. Reportedly the two biggest topics were Google and Adobe.

Steve Jobs on Google:

We did not enter the search business, Jobs said. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won?t let them, he says.Someone else asks something on a different topic, but there’s no getting Jobs off this rant. I want to go back to that other question first and say one more thing, he says. This don’t be evil mantra: “It’s bullshit.” Audience roars.

Then Jobs proceeded to call Adobe lazy and stated that Adobe’s shoddy implementation of Flash on the Mac is why they won’t support it on either the iPhone or iPad.

Jobs on Adobe:

Apple does not support Flash because it is so buggy, he says. Whenever a Mac crashes more often than not it?s because of Flash. No one will be using Flash, he says. The world is moving to HTML5.

Here are some points that MacRumors has received from insiders at the event.

– Apple will deliver aggressive updates to iPhone that Android/Google won’t be able to keep up with
– iPad is up there with the iPhone and Mac as the most important products Jobs has been a part of
– Regarding the Lala acquisition, Apple was interested in bringing those people into the iTunes team
– Next iPhone coming is an A+ update
– New Macs for 2010 are going to take Apple to the next level
– Blu-Ray software is a mess, and Apple will wait until sales really start to take off before implementing it.

Excellent, some exciting new updates await us in 2010.

That is an old pic from one of Apple’s previous media events, but I thought it fit the mood.
