Flash enters the home

It really is interesting to see this web of companies all entering into each others territory.  Google is building an OS to compete with Microsoft and Apple.  Microsoft is making an iPod touch-like Zzzune. 

Adobe today is announcing their foray into the home television market space (AppleTV and many others) with Flash for TV.  Adobe said it expects the first available products with the new Flash runtime will likely be televisions shipped later this year.

Hardware and chip partners for the project include Broadcom, Intel, NXP Semiconductors, Sigma Designs and STMicroelectronics. Distribution partners include Comcast, Disney Interactive, Netflix, New York Times Co. and Atlantic Records.
