Adobe has put up a new banner advertisement on The New York Times and some other websites in response to Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs thoughts on their Flash.

Mmm! The battle is now warming up.

Letter To Steve From BRICs

Hi Steve, how does it feel like being God with the iPad magic wand in your hand. You waved the magic wand and transformed the lives of so many of us. The excitement is palpable in all of us but you have divided the world between “have” and “have-nots”.

We know that you are trying hard. But really not hard enough for all of us. The BRIC nations adore you as much as the US and it would have been really cool if the iPad could have been released in these countries along with the rest of the world.

God treats all its children as equals. It is now your turn. Apple being a world class company should reach out to the entire world in one go.
