Shockwave, Not Flash

Amazing. the Site of the Day at Macromedia’s site gives a mini game for the CD-ROM title Stronghold 2 the honor. But they wrongly credit “Macromedia Flash MX 2004” as the platform for the game. It is Shockwave. It even uses Shockwave 3D, one of the key differences between Flash and Shockwave.
How could a mistake like this get made? Macromedia doesn’t even know their own products. I wonder how many people are now saying “I didn’t know you could do 3D in Flash!” and buying Flash instead of Director?
