Every week, it is our pleasure to bring you the pinnacle of the newest game releases for your iOS device. Believe us, we understand your pain: hundreds of new games debut on the App Store every week, yet you do not have the time nor the energy to trudge through
Sources close to Adobe have suggested that Adobe will be suing Apple in a few weeks, according to a report by ITWorld. This falls on the heels of Apple's announcement that the app store will no longer accept applications created using Flash or other cross-platform compilers. Adobe is already at odds with Apple over the exclusion of Flash on the iPhone and iPad. Suggesting this is an antitrust issue seems to be a bit of a stretch though, so it is unclear what lawsuit Adobe would even have against Apple. And since Adobe has made no official comments regarding a possible lawsuit, at this point everyone is simply in speculation mode.

This new version of the video does not yet work but appears to be based on HTML5. The css files reference HTML5 and have a number of "webkit" specific calls. Webkit is the browser engine used in the iPad's mobile safari. While the videos don't currently play, the "fullscreen mode" reportedly already works in the iPad simulator.
Adding to Adobe's conflict with Apple, Mashable has posted a story as to how Adobe has teamed up with HP to offer a couple of video demos for HP's Slate tablet, the longer demo showcasing Slate's use of Flash and AIR support.
The commercial lays it on pretty thick by emphasizing how Flash support lets you “access the full web and not just a part of it.” The first demo video below shows off photo-sharing and editing, interactive crossword puzzles, Flash games, and more as well as the on-screen keyboard and other elements of the HP Slate user interface. The second video is a 30-second marketing reel showing off the HP Slate in action:
