    Is it expected that once Android 2.2 is released for the Droid X that owners of that phone will be able to listen/watch streaming audio/video which is controlled by Adobe Flash interfaces on webpages? For example, Rhapsody subscribers can listen to streaming audio using a Rhapsody application installed on a PC or can listen at using any web browser that supports Flash. If Rhapsody doesn't somehow block access by Android users (like Hulu is expected to do), would the 2.2 Android platform be able to do this?

    In theory.. someone just has to try it and see if it works.
    Hulu already blocked mobile flash, but people were editing the embedded version and architecture data to make it think it was a desktop version.

    I am sure Hulu will counter this move, if it has not already and if they can.
    Rhapsody may be a different story since it's not an ad supported service.
    Depends on the the MAFIAA tell them to do I guess.
