“Web standards developer Jeff Croft wrote in his blog that Ryan Stewart, a Flash platform evangelist at Adobe, showed him a demo of Flash Player 10.1 running on his Nexus One phone,” Nick Farrell reports for The Inquirer.
“Ryan pulled up a site called Eco Zoo. It is, seemingly, a pretty intense example of Flash development full of 3D rendering, rich interactions, and cute little characters,” Farrell reports. “Then, he pulled up the same thing on his Nexus One. The site’s progress bar filled in and the 3D world appeared for a few seconds before the browser crashed.”
“Apparently Ryan said ‘Whoops! Well, it’s beta, and this is an intense example – let’s try it again,’” Farrell reports. “He tried it again and got the same result.”
Farrell reports, “So he said to the audience, ‘Well, this one isn’t going to work, but does anyone have a Flash site they’d like to see running?’ A wag shouted out Hulu and Ryan sheepishly said, ‘Hulu doesn’t work.’”

MacDailyNews Take: Stewart must be a masochist. Not only does he saddle himself with the nightmare job of trying to evangelize Adobe Flash (which is akin to evangelizing nail guns to Lasik surgeons), he also bought himself one of the very few rebadged HTC “Google Nexus Ones” phones ever sold. You just know he’s got to be a Dell-boy Windows PC sufferer, too.
