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?

They are probably just using adobe as a stepping stone; they own most of the content that matters already (youtube) and could easily make their own open framework later, as has already been discussed here.

But why the stepping stone? It is a way to quickly improve their standing w.r.t. Apple's mobile division.
