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?

Hilarious Alliance

I have found the recent alliance between Google and Adobe very funny. Google utilizes flash extensively in youtube, but otherwise they have been pushing html5. I can't see Google reversing this overall trend. They want Flash to work as well as it can now, but the future is htlm5. Google is obviously only doing this to stick one to Apple. If Adobe thinks they have found a long term friend they are mistaken.
