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.

We don't really like Flash on osnews, none of us do. But neither do we like being told what to think, or see some company with a hidden agenda limit our choices just to increase their own market share and profitability.

That being said, if you had been following the debate you would know that Kroc and Thom don't agree at all (which is a good thing, I mean, we don't want OSnews to become another iNgadget). Unfortunately, they are also becoming a little predictive, which was the point of my post ;)
