MacRumours reports that, immediately following last Wednesday's iPad launch, Steve Jobs held a town hall meeting for Apple employees where — in addition to discussing immediate-future plans — he put both Google (for the Nexus One) and Adobe (for Flash in general) on blast.

According to eyewitness reports, Jobs said of Google, "We did not enter the search business. They entered the phone
business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won't let
them." 
He also promised aggressive upgrades to the iPhone that neither Android nor Google could match.

As for Adobe, Jobs has been down on flash since a buggy Mac implementation: "They are lazy. They have all this potential to do interesting things but they just refuse to do it."  Jobs also stated that HTML5, not Flash, is the future of portable web browsing.

Other topics covered in the meeting included the importance of the iPad, the Lala acquisition, and Apple's refusal to get on the Blu-Ray bandwagon until the software and disc sales improve.
