Internet & Networking Adobe has gone on the offensive - big time. The company has started a rather massive advertisement campaign on the web as well as in print in various large US newspapers, in answer to Apple's battle with Flash and Adobe. In the meantime, Adobe received support from an unexpected corner - Andy Gryc, product marketing manager at QNX, has written a lengthy blog post supporting Adobe.

I just tried Flash on Windows 7 to play a video on Hulu (the most recent 'Friday night lights') in windowed mode.

It appeared to use 40-50% of my core2 1.4 GHz cpu when looking at cycle-accurate timing (a default-hidden column in Resource Monitor).

It's really important to use the cycle time measurements for multimedia applications, since they tend not to be displayed accurately by task manager's interrupt-based time accounting, due to the fact that they are driven by the timer interrupt and tend to run in between clock ticks.
