Adobe released a minor update of Adobe AIR, version 1.5.2, which includes some reliability, compatibility and security related bug fixes.

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.

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 […]

Posted by | June 16, 2009 .

Adobe Flex & Adobe AIR Adobe AIR has now been installed over 200 million times.
