Steve Jobs on Flash

A little off-topic for Identity Management, but once a year or so I post something just for amusement.

In Jobs' open letter on why Apple doesn't support Flash, he makes some valid points. Among them, he states:

We strongly believe that all standards pertaining to the web should be open. Rather than use Flash, Apple has adopted HTML5, CSS and JavaScript – all open standards.

HTML5, the new web standard that has been adopted by Apple, Google and many others, lets web developers create advanced graphics, typography, animations and transitions without relying on third party browser plug-ins (like Flash).
So, then, what's wrong with this picture?

Hint: click to enlarge and notice the message:
This website wants to run the following add-on: 'Quick-Time' from 'Apple, Inc.'
