Adobe Flash downloaded over 1 million times from Android Market
It is probably no surprise to anyone that Adobe Flash Player 10.1 has been downloaded more than 1 million times from the Android Market. Along with the new Android 2.2 "Froyo" version of Google's open source OS comes support for the Flash Player. Sure, the app takes up a ton of memory space, but it also brings the real life PC experience to your handset.

While completely expected, Adobe must feel a little vindicated by this vote of support for its software. No matter how much they act like it doesn't bother them, Apple CEO Steve Jobs' diatribe against Flash and Adobe can't be good for company morale. What might put a smile on everyone's face at Adobe is the teamwork behind the scenes that makes sure that Flash is all it can be.

For example, Anup Murarka, director of technical marketing for mobile and devices for Adobe, told ZDNet that the software company has a Flash "Swat Team" that goes around the web to make sure that sites are running well on Flash. The problem is that some sites are delivering mobile web sites and while most of these stripped down pages have a link to the full site, it just adds an unnecessary step that the user must navigate past to reach his hoped for destination.
