The most creative online shop in Flash, period.

Posted by | March 17, 2010 .

And, it’s the first time you might feel online shopping is fun (even you are a single-language-speaker American). HEMA is a Dutch department store.  The first store opened on November 4, 1926, in Amsterdam.  Now there are 150 stores all over the Netherlands. Take a look at HEMA‘s product page.  You can’t order anything, and […]

Google Takes Over Internet via SPDY?

Posted by | February 3, 2010 .

It seems Google is on the path to take over everything online or everything in bits and bytes, well, except in…and what Apple aims at. The funny thing is that almost everyone who surfs online is literally working for Google and contributing to its “google” sized bank account, in the way of pay for […]

Review 10 Predictions for 2009

Posted by | January 5, 2010 .

It becomes a tradition that I’ll write a 10-predictions piece for every new year. This is only because I’ve been doing so well with those predictions that I just can’t help trying it again and again. Before getting into 2010 (pronounced twenty ten and that’s settled), let me review how good the 2009 predictions made […]

Google Takes on Flash and Silverlight with Chrome Frame

Posted by | September 23, 2009 .

In my 10 RIA Predictions for 2009 No. 3 I said “Google will release a RIA runtime to beat Flex, Silverlight, Firefox and everybody else for UI spaces.” I am right! Google released the Google Chrome Frame yesterday (9/22/09). It’s a plugin, as I predicted. So far it’s only for IE. “With Google Chrome Frame, […]

Rounding Up A Week of Acquisitions

Posted by | September 21, 2009 .

Google’s justification for acquiring reCAPTCHA makes a lot more sense than Adobe’s for acquiring Omniture. However, Adobe’s announcement of the release of Adobe Flash Access throws a new light on the acquisition and it now appears that perhaps Omniture does fit in. Sarah Perez reported an example of what could go wrong with cloud services. […]

Adobe and Omniture?

Posted by | September 16, 2009 .

Yesterday Both Adobe and Omiture announced that Adobe acquired Omiture. For $1.8 billion! Adobe will pay $21.50 a share in cash (cash!) for it, a 24% premium to that day’s price. This is a puzzling deal. While Silverlight Is Still Racing Flash, as WSJ reported the same day, Adobe jumps into a very new territory […]

RIA Cowboy beautifies the Cloud – salesforce

Posted by | September 5, 2009 .

Moxie had three-post series in 2007 that gave some details on how to put Map, Flex, Yahoo Pipe, Flickr together into, Flex Mashup I, Flex Mashup II and Flex Mashup III. Now in 2009 it’s all about cloud. James War, aka RIA Cowboy, just had this post talking about integrating Flex into’s cloud […]

Another Step Towards Deep Thought

Posted by | August 20, 2009 .

I have been reading about Wolfram|Alpha here and there every now and then but never gave it the attention it deserved until now. For the similarly uninitiated, what is Wolfram Alpha? Ask it yourself. Wolfram|Alpha is a self-aware computational knowledge engine, which is to say that it computes based on the knowledge it already has […]

Rounding Up Week Of the 2009 Hype Cycle

Posted by | August 17, 2009 .

The Gartner Hype Cycle 2009 report was released last week. Cloud computing and E-book readers share the global maxima, and social software suites and microblogging are apparently just past their crest. Ryan Stewart highlighted Adobe’s prominence. Ryan Stewart is also awestruck by interface designer Theresa Neil and highly recommends some of her material on RIAs. […]
