First off, dear co-bloggers, if you have been planning to join the BlogRush, I’m sorry to say that it is no more. Actually, Mark Hopkins of Mashable said that. Cheer up, it was not very appealing and apparently had so many problems, it is short-lived like the gold rush. For those wondering what this is all about, BlogRush was a service that promised those who signed up a “RUSH of TRAFFIC to their BLOG.”
Google is silently pushing updates of Chrome. I didn’t notice it until a .EXE download initiated a prompt from Chrome before downloading itself silently like every other file. v0.2.149.27 to v0.3.154.9. In the meantime, Federico Fieni’s comic about Google tackling Microsoft with Chrome is travelling the Internet. While everybody is happy with the sinister look of giant Google, I’m starting to wonder whether it is a personification of Google Cloud than Google itself. You tell me.
Another Italian has an encouraging news for us. Flash programmer Emanuele Feronato made more than $9,000 by making Flash Games just for fun during his spare time in a year.
More good news comes from Greg Jastrab of SmartLogic Solutions. His solution for migrating serialization changes in AIR won him the grand prize of the Adobe AIR Cook-off. Congratulations once again, Greg! That’s a very neat solution that should work like a charm.
The Hongkiat blog has recently compiled a mile long list of 60 useful Adobe AIR applications from 6 different sources. There might be several for me to take and review sometime in the future. Thank you, Kay.
Lastly, Prof. Savage and his team have “Sneakey” ready. Those who have a habit of holding their keys in their hands, or placing them on the table in front of them, beware! If you play with your keys round a finger, someone might capture that shot and come back to haunt you.
