Hardware, Embedded Systems In 2009 ARM showed off prototype netbooks "capable of driving HD content, can surf the web for 8 hours, and will cost round and about 250 USD". Yet still, none have made it to the market. Why do you think this is so? Because ARM signed a deal with Adobe in 2008 to bring Flash and AIR to the ARM architecture, a promise they will finally deliver later this year. And you wonder why Apple won't have Flash on the iPhone when it can hold back an entire product category for two years.

... but the Kroc/Thom anti/pro articles are getting out of hands.

Seeing that Kroc was the author of this piece about flash, I pretty much knew how he would spin it without reading the article ;)

Come on Kroc, "Think Different"!!

Speaking of doing your own thinking [i.e. don't let Steve think for you], I think ARM is full of shit on this one. Do you really believe ARM gave up a huge market just to wait for Adobe? I mean, come on people, use your brains!
