This tuesday was at the Web 2.0 summit, Adobe's CEO, Shantanu Narayen, commented on the animosity between Adobe and Apple provoking them by saying, "Let the games begin"
In addition to the comments on HTML5 vs Flash, Adobe blamed the entire battery life issue on Apple, stating that it is their fault for not sending Adobe a Macbook Air prior to its release.
Despite blatantly denying the fact that there is a problem with Flash affecting the battery life of the new MacBook Air; Narayen stated there is currently a MacBook Air in their labs running a beta version of an "optimized" flash, designed specifically for the MacBook.
No details on when the "optimized" flash will be released, but our batteries are hoping it's soon.
Now all Apple (or Adobe) has to do is educated users that they have to download a new Flash version. Used to be distributed by Apple through the automatic software update, but not anymore.
If the MacBook Air has it's "own special" issue on top of this, then that is news to me.
They (Adobe) should address both.
I miss Macromedia, they cared about the end users.
