Wow, this is odd. According to a new report today from the United States Department of Justice, six very well recognized silicon valley companies are have their hands slapped by a very powerful entity.

The latest zinger of an ad that clearly pokes at the iPhone comes in the form of a full-page Motorola Wall Street Journal ad. As shown above it's pretty obvious they are targeting the lack of Adobe Flash support on iOS. The image came via Ben Forta who posted it via Twitter. It sames simply, "Flash websites? There's a phone for that" showing... Read more...
Yep, it's finally here! Flash Player 10.1 has finally been made official for Google's Nexus One, enabling it to play back Flash content and display Flash websites in a way that the iPod touch, iPad and iPhone can only dream of doing. The N1 has had a beta version for a while now, one that we mentioned (and loved) in our Android 2.2 review.... Read more...
Oh, brother. Okay, we won't jump to conclusions and be immediately skeptical, but there's just something strange about how quickly the industry is latching onto 3D without any real proof that it'll work in more than just the cinema. Of course, when power house companies like Sony and NVIDIA get behind something, it leaves little choice for... Read more...
Steve Jobs and company may want no part of Adobe's Flash platform, but plenty of other mobile entities do, including Google. Answering the call, Adobe today announced the release of its Flash Player 10.1 to mobile platform partners.

Undeterred by Apple's stubborn refusal to support Flash, Adobe this week peered into their crystal ball and evidently saw a future in which their Flash Player came installed on more than 250 million smartphones. Adobe isn't talking about some far off future, either, and instead sees itself going from zero to hero in... Read more...
It was already made rather clear that the next version of Android (v2.2, or "Froyo" in code name speak) would support Adobe Flash Web sites, which has been the talk of the smartphone world over the past few months. Apple's iPhone family has never supported Flash sites, but this debate was rekindled and elevated once... Read more...
We're still waiting for this so-called Hulu Plus subscription to go into effect, but while everything's still free, we'll try to pretend that Hulu is just updating their video player out of the kindness of their heart. There's no certain indication that this overhaul is leading up to a paid option for select "premium"... Read more...
The public dispute between Apple and Adobe over whether or not Flash should be ported over to the iPhone OS has took a turn for the silly, and we couldn't be more happy about it. In case you're not up to speed, the situation is this: Steve Jobs had some harsh things to say about Adobe's Flash, including the platform's poor performance and... Read more...
A few weeks after Apple announced its revised programming rules for iPhad devices, Adobe dropped the bombshell that it was abandoning Apple's platform.

The debate surrounding Adobe's Flash has never been hotter, and as the he-said-she-said rages on, more and more companies are stepping forward to make public their own take.

Sound the alarm. Wake the neighbors. Grab your guns. It's Adobe versus Apple, and the war is officially underway. As if Apple didn't enough have fighting going on in their backyard already, the company has seemingly picked another one this week with Adobe. The company responsible for Flash, Photoshop and Premiere has... Read more...
When Apple released a new version of its iPhone developer program last week, it included new eligibility requirements that have serious implications for both advertisers and programmers. Adobe and Apple have been less than chummy in recent months, but the content creation company has always maintained it would bring Flash to the iPhone one... Read more...
Maingear already made a name for themselves in the gaming PC market with the SHIFT. The company calls that company the world's first "personal supercomputer," and though we doubt it'd be good for solving NASA problems or the like, it really is quite powerful. In an effort to cater to the creative professionals who... Read more...
Finally, some positive Adobe news! After hearing so much negativity surrounding the Adobe/Apple spat (and feeling that Flash won't even come to Apple's mobile product portfolio), it's great to hear that one of our favorite software suites is getting an upgrade. The Web has known that Creative Suite 5 was on the horizon, but today the company... Read more...

Let's not forget that Google owns YouTube, so the... Read more...
A number of iPad-related stories broke over the last couple days; we've rounded up some of the larger topics into a single news post. First up, graphic designer Paul Threatt took exception to some of Apple's iPad advertisements, several of which purported to show the device running Flash without a hitch. In the screenshot below, the iPad is... Read more...
Post-iPad announcement, Steve Jobs late last week held a company town hall. Wired noted that the big topics included both Google and Adobe, which should surprise none.After all, Google is becoming more of a threat to Apple, with its Android app phone OS, and with plans to release a Chrome OS for PCs as well. Additionally, Adobe's made clear... Read more...
We've covered Apple's forthcoming iPad with a pretty good level of detail, but one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is Flash. Or, the lack thereof, we should say. Steve Jobs was adamant on stage during his iPad introduction that the browsing experience was best in class, but when we think about browsing, we... Read more...
Whether you hate Flash or, well, hate it less, there's no denying that the multimedia platform has a near-total lock on the development and distribution of rich multimedia content. The rise of Web 2.0 (and its cohort of equally vague cutesy phrases) has resulted in a huge increase in the amount of video published online, whether one considers... Read more...
Adobe has tried a number of things in its attempt to get Apple to break down enough barriers so the company can get Flash ported on to the iPhone and so far, nothing has worked. In Adobe's latest attempt, the company is spelling it out to you, the user, as to why you can't get Flash on your favorite handset. Previously, when you visited the... Read more...
