    As for the stock treading water, it seems reflective very well of the company treading water as well. Nothing new, just plugging along.

    An excellent description of Adobe’s performance.  grin

    I don’t see much that will raise the share in the near future. That’s why the prospects of a suitor becomes attractive.

    They would still want 20 bil, which is way to much.

    Adversity does not just build character, it reveals it.

    Flash alone or the CS series alone can not propel the share price much higher. This is why I think a suitor might be the best option to increase shareholder value.

    Probably right. I don’t see future CS releases being “revolutionary” as much as “evolutionary” with out some more competition to push them along.

    (What follows is 2nd hand, but from a reliable source)

    Today on Martha Stewart’s TV show she showed off her new iPad App.  It is a “magazine” and uses the Adobe tools used by other some other magazines.  An Adobe employee was present during a demo.

    At some point Martha asked the Adobe guy, “how much does an iPad cost?”  Instead of answering, he stated that tablets were available from several manufacturers.

    I suppose that after the demo he ran to the Green Room to wash his hands.
