Samsung just sent us one hell of a goofy press release... on a scale of 1-10, this thing rates a 'K'. At first I was reluctant to run with it for fear of being that creepy, awkward blog (hell, some of you got upset over the Android vs. iPhone sex partners thing, when that was obviously in good fun - but I digress). So, without a creeper 'stache in sight around the AP offices, here goes.

Yesterday, we spent the day at Adobe HQ for their Adobe for Android Summit. We heard from Anup Murarka of the Mobile and Devices team, Paul Betlem for Flash, Aaron Filner for AIR, and N.J. on Flash platform tools.

Anub started off with some numbers:

  • 85 of Alexa Top 100 sites use Flash
  • 70% of web games use Flash
  • 70% of all video on the web is Flash
  • 98% of internet connected PCs have Flash player worldwide
  • 95% of internet connected PCs worldwide have installed Flash Player 10
  • 90% of top 20 OEMs committed to delivering Flash

Thanks to its wide distribution and variety of usability - whether for an app, a game, a movie, or something else - Flash is just about everywhere.

OKCupid (via Gizmodo) published an extremely interesting (but very in-depth) article detailing all kinds of smartphone and camera data. There were a number of interesting things in the article, perhaps the most relevant of which is that Android users have nearly half the number of sexual partners as iPhone users. Age bias is eliminated because the poll was conducted on 30 year-olds, rather than the mass populace. No real use for that information, but funny and interesting.
