After weeks of speculation, teasers and leaks, the day many Android aficionados have been antsy about has arrived: the unveiling of Verizon's Droid X and Droid 2.
Thanks to a recent "pre-review," we have a pretty good idea of what to expect in terms of features, at least as far the Motorola (MOT) Droid x, including a new 45 nm 1GHz TI OMAP processor that's almost double the raw speed of MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Jun 23, 2010 11:58 AM ET
Two big updates from Adobe are now ready for Android devices.
Last night, Adobe Blogger John Nack posted that Flash 10.1 Beta 3 is now available in the Android Market or from here if you are running Android 2.2 Froyo (which is likely only Nexus One users, a few other hackers out there, and maybe some Droid 2/x beta testers?).
Additionally, a new release of the Photoshop.com Mobile app just hit MORESeth Weintraub - Jun 18, 2010 7:58 AM ET
Apple is likely to duck these bullets, say two analysts, but every case increases its risk
Absent a "smoking gun," neither the Federal Trade Commission nor the Department of Justice is likely to take Apple (AAPL) to court for antitrust violations, according to a note to clients issued Friday by Stifel Nicolas's Rebecca Arbogast and George Askew.
Apple has credible justifications, they write, for both complaints that have been lodged against it: MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 11, 2010 10:15 AM ET
Using an independent advertising platform to get Flash in the iPhone and iPad's back door
Here's an odd twist.
In a press statement scheduled for release two hours before Steve Jobs' WWDC keynote, Adobe (ADBE) has announced that it is teaming up with an independent mobile advertising network to bring advertisements written in Flash to a variety of mobile devices, including Apple's (AAPL) iPhone and iPad and Google's (GOOG) Android phones.

From Apple to Yahoo, Silicon Alley Insider spots the Achilles' heels
Here's an interesting exercise. Rather than look at what America's leading tech companies do best, why not focus on what they do worst? That's what SAI's Jay Yarow has done in a gallery posted Wednesday. The headlines:
Google (GOOG) doesn't get social
Apple (AAPL) doesn't get the cloud
Twitter's weakness is good product
Facebook underestimates the importance of privacy
Microsoft (MSFT) doesn't get the Web
Notes from from an Apple watcher stuck on the wrong coast
Apple's (AAPL) CEO was scheduled to give the 6 p.m. PDT keynote at All Things Digital Tuesday night, but the show is running late and rumor has it that he's been pre-empted, at least temporarily, by Rupert Murdoch. Makes sense. Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher may think this is their show, but Murdoch -- as CEO of the News Corp. MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 1, 2010 10:03 PM ET
"Traditional PC folks feel their world is slipping away," says Apple's CEO. "It is."
Kudos to Valleywag's Ryan Tate for posting in full his bizarre late-night alcohol-induced e-mail debate with Steve Jobs, given -- as he is the first to admit -- how bad some of the things he wrote make him look. (He drops names he shouldn't, he can't seem to spell Cocoa correctly, and he'll have hell to MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 16, 2010 9:02 AM ET
Despite Apple's public denouncement of Flash, its creator is about to have a banner year
By JP Mangalindan, reporter
Steve Jobs may have written his paean to the public, explaining why he feels it's time to leave Adobe's Flash to the dustbin of history, but the relegation seems premature. In fact, the record shows that consumers have been overlooking the lack of Flash support on Apple's mobile device for years. MOREMay 14, 2010 3:00 AM ET
Up from 10% four months ago, according to a new survey
How's Steve Jobs' campaign against Adobe (ADBE) Flash progressing? The bar chart at right offers one measure.
It comes from Mefeedia, a media search website that indexes video from a wide variety of sources -- from CBS and ABC to YouTube and Hulu, some 30,000 sources in all.
