Internet & Networking Not too long ago Adobe started a "We love Apple" campaign, as a response to Apple's continuous negative remarks about the company. With Flash 10.1 slowly but surely appearing on more and more mobile devices, it seems like the company just doesn't care about it any more. Adobe's CEO Shantanu Narayen has said they've "moved on".

That is the other issue with it and one that can't be held against any platform since it affects all of them. Security on the local machine that does not trust the local machine owner just doesn't work. It's the very definition of security theater; mean to feel safe rather than be safe.

Yup, but for the time-being, the content producers *think* they're safe - or at least, they feel relatively secure that very few individuals know how to rip their content from an encrypted stream.

It's quite maddening.

They know their movies are ripped easily from dvds and torrented but they still prefer some protection to none when it comes to streaming. The arguments for moving away from Flash just aren't very strong from the producer's point of view. It isn't as if Adobe gets a cut from each stream.
