Rounding Up Social Media Outage Week

Posted by Sravan | August 10, 2009 .

Many developers are increasingly working on Android apps. Now that Apple’s App Rejection pseudocode has been exposed. I have seen only two applications of pseudocode so far: interviews and jokes.

Ryan has examples to prove that the latest release Adobe AIR 1.5.2 is in fact more than what I previously called “a minor update… which includes some reliability, compatibility and security related bug fixes.” Do check out the new disposeXML() function for better memory management of your AIR apps.

After buying enough iPhone apps from the Apple App Store, Jeff Atwood begins to wonder whether the traditional software pricing model is being proved completely wrong. It is a tricky question. For small softwares built by one or few developers, the “use our free software and donate” model seems to work quite well, and as you go towards the enterprise softwares it is not always sustainable.

Ted Patrick’s post about the future of the Flash platform is becoming a small bugs.adobe.com page in itself. I agree that Adobe has many ears and is a great listener. I can particularly vouch for their Adobe AIR team. Whether it is the idle CPU usage, large installer size, and memory management issues, all the feedback has been received from the community and actively worked on. So do voice your concerns, issues, bugs, enhancements, etc. Resist the temptation to simply add another comment to Ted’s post and instead post it on bugs.adobe.com.

Peter Elst delves into the current philosophy of ActionScript and gently suggests Adobe to swerve from its current object-oriented orthodoxy.

Twitter is now filtering malicious URLs. Those which are not wrapped inside URL shorteners at least. Bit.ly has been taking care of a major chunk of the latter kind by warning users. Something to start with.
