Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta and AIR 2 released

Adobe have pushed their Flash Player 10.1 Beta out of the door, together with Adobe AIR 2, with the Windows version of the new Flash runtime supporting H.264 hardware acceleration.  The Mac and Linux 10.1 prereleases are yet to support that, and so far there's no sign of a smartphone release as Adobe promised back in October; Adobe have confirmed, though, that the webOS beta for the Palm Pre and Pixi will appear sometime this year.

Flash 10.1 unveiled: smartphone betas coming, HD GPU acceleration added

Adobe have upgraded their Flash offensive, with the news this week that the next version - Flash 10.1 - will run across not only desktop but mobile and smartphone platforms.  Taking advantage of the Open Screen Project (OSP), the new version will arrive as a Windows Mobile and webOS beta before the year is out, while early in 2010 we'll get Android and Symbian versions.  Finally, while there's no release date for 10.1 yet given, RIM have signed up to the OSP meaning BlackBerry devices will also get Flash support.

So, the Chumby came out awhile ago.

It was a pretty original idea, and while it may not have been the sharpest looking thing on the block, its functionality was close to making it worth it. Especially if you don't like alarm clocks, and can't afford the alternative. But, apparently the hardware wasn't the top of the pick for many, and so Chumby is moving over onto the software front, hoping to make a name for itself.
