Adobe is lashing out at Apple on its Flash Player page for the iPhone.  When you go to the Flash Player on your iPhone, the text now says "Apple restricts use of technologies required by products like Flash Player.

Red Hat is rolling out the newest edition to its virtualization portfolio.  Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers includes Enterprise Virtualisation Hypervison and Enterprise Virtualisation Manager for Servers.  Virtualisation Hypervison is a light weight hypervisor for hosting Windows and Linux virtual machines, and the Virtualisation Manager for Servers is a browser based management system that creates, configures, and moves virtual machines.

For the second day in a row, Marco Peereboom's "OpenSSL is written by monkeys" is the top link on DZone.  If you haven't checked it out this adventure in OpenSSL already, you should give it a read.  It's a nice mix of humor and hard analysis.
