Adobe clocks first billion-dollar quarter ever, $268m profit

It's been a year of Flash-related drama for Adobe, but otherwise it seems like things are humming along nicely: the company just posted its first-ever quarter with a billion dollars in revenue, which is good for a $268.9 million profit. Unfortunately there's no granular data on how Flash is faring in the market -- it's lumped into the Creative Solutions group with the rest of the Creative Suite products, but with big wins on Android in the past year and a huge win on the Air-based BlackBerry Playbook coming next year, we'd say things are going well, no matter what Steve Jobs' Thoughts are.
