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.

Netflix subscribers using the Watch Instantly feature use Silverlight. That's just one place I can think of.

As for gnash, does it work with pandora.com yet? Last time I tried it resulted in epic fail, but that was admittedly almost two years ago and I'm sure they've made improvements...
