So I was kinda tapped out this Monday morning for anything to post up here on the blog and did what I always do when there’s nothing else going on but the rent, I googled “Adobe” and looked under News. Well here’s something I didn’t know. The Macbook Air did NOT have Flash preinstalled on it like most other Apple products. More Flash-bashing by Apple? Maybe, maybe not. Apparently, Flash was draining the battery by a big 2 hours, so it is reasonable they are giving people the option to install Flash. And wait, isn’t that what Apple should be doing with the iPad and iPhone too??? Methinks yes.
Anyway, here’s the good news… Adobe is optimizing Flash for the MacBook Air. Which if I can remember right this all has something to do with Adobe and Apple actually talking to each other underneath the hood of the Flash plugin and being like “oh you’re doing that? Well we’re doing this, and we should probably be doing this other thing” And wha-lah. All fixed. No more tears.
