Apple's Big New Hire Sure Doesn't Like Apple SometimesAdobe CTO Kevin Lynch—that’s the guy in charge of technology at a very powerful and important technology company—is jumping ship, reportedly for Apple. Which is odd, because he’s said a lot of mean, frustrated things about Apple!

Lynch has been with Adobe since 2005, meaning he was lined up against Steve Jobs when the two companies repeatedly clashed over little things like freedom, openness, and how much Flash sucks. It led to a lot of public comments that would suggest Lynch just doesn’t like the way Apple operates. Awwww-wwwkward, as sayeth the tweens. All emphasis added.
