Rounding Up The Microsoft-Yahoo! Week

Posted by | August 3, 2009 .

Adobe released a minor update of Adobe AIR, version 1.5.2, which includes some reliability, compatibility and security related bug fixes. Having had enough with the bullying, Aral Balkan is taking some serious steps to fight Sys-Con. A minor victory already. Bravo! He seeks our help and I request you on his behalf. I am reluctant […]

Flex Unit Testing Made Easy With FlexMonkey

Posted by | July 30, 2009 .

Gorilla Logic released the 1.0 version of their FlexMonkey, an open source AIR application for optimizing automated and unit testing of Flex-based applications.

The Eagle Has Landed

The 40th anniversary celebrations of the Apollo 11 Moon landing go on. Domani Studios built a beautiful Flex-based website called We Choose the Moon that takes us through the odyssey in 11 stages using the material provided by the JFK Presidential Library & Museum. At each stage are photos, videos, 3D flyovers around the shuttle, […]

Didn’t Get Adobe Wave

Posted by | July 23, 2009 .

Joerg Beckert let us know that a public beta version of Adobe Wave is now available on Adobe Labs. I tried it and didn’t get the point. The FAQ on the home page says: Adobe Wave is an Adobe AIR application that lets you get notifications from the websites you care about. It displays a […]

GlobeReader: A Times Reader Clone

Posted by | July 21, 2009 .

Ignorant that The Boston Globe has been owned by The New York Times since 1993, I wrote a snarkiest review about its new Adobe AIR-based GlobeReader comparing it with Times Reader 2.0. The home pages, FAQs, installation experiences, EULAs, the apps itself look eerily similar. Visiting their $PROGRAMFILES and $APPDATA folders hinted that it couldn’t […]

Rounding Up Last Week of Great Posts

Posted by | July 20, 2009 .

Jens made great points about how Adobe’s PR maxes out during MAX conferences and creates a vacuum for itself outside of it. I vaguely remember Cocomo, now AFCS, but Adobe Wave? A meme of Google Wave strikes my mind before each time I think of even Happy Dent Wave. Yes, everybody can take a leaf […]

Posted by | July 14, 2009 .

Adobe released ColdFusion 9 and ColdFusion Builder public betas yesterday. The two new releases are a step closer to integration with the Adobe Flash platform since support for Adobe Flex (along with AJAX) started with the previous version. ColdFusion 9 comes with support for Adobe AIR applications including local/remote database synchronization, but most importantly has […]

Rounding Up Google Chrome OS Week

Posted by | July 13, 2009 .

The Adobe Flex team is collecting feedback on Flex 4 and Flash Builder beta. Take this short survey. Fake Steve Jobs has a very interesting take on the Google Chrome OS. Ryan has a diametrically opposite view, especially about the impact of netbooks on the OS market. This article writer, however, thinks that operating systems […]
