Latest Apple OS X update comprises of nearly half Adobe Flash fixes

Apple’s most recent OS X update has yielded some pretty interesting information – we’re talking about 40% of the fixes targeting nothing but Adobe Flash out of the 130 plus bugs corrected. Could this be one of the main reasons why Steve Jobs decided that Flash isn’t really suitable for mobile devices, since the platform does seem to be pretty vulnerable, making it a snap for hackers with devious intent […]


Adobe confirms Google’s Gingerbread launch

Adobe might have accidentally confirmed the arrival of Google’s Gingerbread update by posting updates to the AIR 2.5 and Flash 10.1 for Android.

Google Chrome Browser Gets Native Flash Support

Google has released an updated version of its Chrome web browser that has Adobe’s Flash enabled by default, which should bring a happy smile to the folks over at Adobe. This will make things easier for users as they won’t have to download the plug-in separately, and it could also help mitigate crashes as it sandboxes the plug-in, preventing failures from compromising the tab or the whole browser itself. In […]

LG Mini GD880 does Flash

The LG Mini GD880 which we looked at at Mobile World Congress 2010 in February earlier this year will apparently ship with an HTML5 compliant, Webkit-based browser that will be able to handle Adobe Flash and get this – making room for up to 10 simultaneous windows to be viewed, although you might question the wisdom of doing so on a 3.2″ touchscreen display. This is definitely something not even […]

Could Google Bundle Flash With Its Chrome Browser?

Apple and Adobe certainly aren’t seeing eye to eye recently over Flash, especially with the iPad not including Flash support, but could Adobe be getting a valuable ally in the form of the search engine giant Google?

Of course, Google’s Chrome already supports Adobe, but […]

No Flash for Windows Mobile 6.5

If you happen to use a smartphone running on the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, then this isn’t good news for you – it seems that Adobe has indicated that Windows Mobile 6.5 users won’t be able to use Flash 10.1, as that version only applies to Windows Phone 7 owners.
