Google Well, this was about as inevitable as Apple not losing a super-secret iPhone prototype: Google and Adobe have pretty much formed an alliance against the iPhone, in true the-enemy-of-my-enemy-is-my-friend style. The agreement between the two companies is clearly a big middle finger towards Apple and the iPhone. Update: Apple has finally added a framework to Mac OS X that will enable accelerated Flash video content - something Adobe has been asking for. This should enable Adobe to greatly improve Flash video performance on Mac OS X. Anyone know about Linux?

Acceleration framework?

I don't get what Adobe always blathered about, being unable to accelerate Flash video on OS X before. Silverlight did it, for crying out loud, and they did it with their *first* Mac version. Far be it from me to promote a proprietary technology like Silverlight, but there's no denying it runs circles around Flash in the performance department.
