Sending out r�sum�s in PDF

The Daring Fireball post “Translation From PR-Speak to English of Selected Portions of Adobe’s `FAQ’ Regarding Their Acquisition of Macromedia” has been widely noticed. But that does not mean that it cannot be noted here.
My favorite line “Please also note that PDF is an excellent format for sending out r�sum�s.”

Where by “complementary” we mean “the two leading technologies that irritate people when they’re used in lieu of regular web pages.” Note that we’re using PDF to serve this very FAQ — in our synergistic future, perhaps we’ll serve our FAQs in a hybrid PDF/Flash format. One can dream. [Daring Fireball]
