Adobe debuts What Jobs Hates™ v10.1

New Flash for non-iPhones

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Adobe has officially released Flash Player 10.1, a piece of software reviled by worldwide cult leader Steve Jobs.

The application player is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac. But not the iPhone or the iPad. Steve Jobs has ensured that even if you translate Flash into iPhone machine code, you can't run it on the iPhone.

Pre-release versions have been available since November, but today, the beta tag was removed. Most notably, Flash Player 10.1 supports hardware video acceleration – but only on Windows.

In March, Steve Jobs shocked the world by adding a Snow Leopard API into Mac OS X version 10.6.3 that allows third parties to hardware-accelerate H.264 video on the Mac, and in April, Adobe told The Reg that it was working on a version of Flash Player that taps this API, but it said this wouldn't arrive until after the debut of 10.1.

The company has not yet given an arrival date. A preview version, however, is available here.

Taking pity on Flash, Google has rolled a beta version of 10.1 into its Android mobile operating system. ®
