IDG News Service - Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch is leaving the company to take a job at Apple, a one-time close partner of Adobe that became the most vociferous critic of its Flash technology.

Lynch resigned Monday to "pursue other opportunities," Adobe said in a regulatory filing Tuesday. It later confirmed that he is taking a job at Apple. Lynch had been CTO of Adobe for five years.

"We will not be replacing the CTO position; responsibility for technology development lies with our business unit heads under the leadership of Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen," Adobe said in a statement sent via email.

Seems like a big blow to Adobe. 

considering the quiet flight of top people from apple, I don't think this bodes well for them either.

Google looks stronger and stronger compared with everyone else.

John Gruber agrees with Jason. "Bozo" and "Bad hire":
