The Apple chief answers questions about Flash, Foxconn suicides, competition with Google, and more.

Wall Street Journal: During the All Things Digital Conference, Apple CEO Steve Jobs answered questions on a wide range of topics. About the company's decision to ban Adobe's Flash technology from the iPad and iPhone, he said, "Sometimes you have to pick the things that look like the right horses to ride going forward."

He also defended the company's use of supplier Foxconn, saying that the factory plagued by a recent increase in employee suicides wasn't a "sweatshop." He added that Apple is "trying to understand what's happening, and more importantly trying to understand how to help."

About Google, Jobs said that the two companies' amicable relationship changed when Google began competing with Apple in the mobile phone space.
