Multimedia, AV Not too long ago, Apple added the Video Decode Acceleration framework to Mac OS X, allowing developers to get low-level access to hardware H264 acceleration. Adobe was quite thrilled about this, because they claimed this was needed for Flash video to become hardware accelerated on the Mac. This feature's been in beta for a while now, but yesterday they finally released it as part of a regular Flash Player update. Caveat: Apple's support for this framework can be a bit sketchy.

I never said I'd deactivate current licenses. I would just release a statement that said I was no longer interested in supporting platforms that were hostile to our products. Users would still be able to use future versions on Windows via BootCamp anyway.

I know my reaction is a knee-jerk reaction, but if a company wants to play hardball, then let's play! But that's probably one of many reasons I'm not an exec. ;)
