But from all the reports I've seen on the web of the Nexus One running Hulu, it appears to work just fine.
One must not recommend something simply because one read it be so. I also read a report where the Flash evangelist tried a demo in a conference. It did not work. He asked the audience for another site, and he said.
"That will not work."
My own experience with Adobe as a company is that they are not reliable in providing updates. And the updates are not just $10-20, if they even decide to do it. The OS version of my old iMac, they decided it was not worth making an upgrade, for one of their products that I bought. But, they do not even have the latest version for the Mac that I could buy. If there was one, it would have cost about $299, if memort serves me. The Windows version was $100 cheaper. To use their Windows product, I had to buy a new PC (since I did not have one), or buy the Mac and install a Windows software.
Then, the issue were just two OS, the Apple OS and the Windows.
In the mobile computing world, there will be more OS and variations of these OS, if some phone manufacturers decide to fork open source versions, like the Android.
Right now, many of these OS get major upgrades every year, plus minor upgrades in between.
If Adobe, considering mobile devices, specifically smartphones, have been around for more than three years now, and Adobe has promised to come up with one that was supposed to be a mobile Flash version since early 2009 has yet to delay that version, possibly later part of the year -- and that is just for Android -- what is the assurance that Adobe will ever keep up, not only for Android, but the iPhone OS, and other OS?
Would they treat all OS or their iterations equally? Or, would they preferentially favor one OS over another, in terms of features and frequency of updates, as they favored Windows OS over the Mac OS, in the PC market?
Those are the long term issues that Steve Jobs/Apple and many Apple products have to deal with, for decades.
Would you really they would trust Adobe, this time around?
