Apple has now posted a memo from Steve Jobs regarding Flash. In a nutshell, the Apple CEO says Flash is unreliability, insecure and has low performance. And he did not want developers to use Flash tools to develop sub-standard iPhone, iPad apps.
Steve said: Flash was created during the PC era—for PCs and mice. The mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open Web standards—all areas where Flash falls short. Adobe should focus more on creating tools for the future and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind.

Steve Jobs has sent out a letter to Apple employees today saying that his health problems are “more complex” than he at first thought. Here is the full letter from TUAW:
I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.
In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple’s day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.
I look forward to seeing all of you this summer.
