Rounding Up Last Week From Animation to User Interfaces

Posted by | April 20, 2009 .

WaiLam started a cool series on character animation using the Flash CS4 bone tool. Lee Brimelow reminds us about Census. I came across this James Ward’s benchmarking tool only a few months ago. It has been around for a couple of years now, and the updates, if at all, are being published so silently that […]

Rounding Up April Fool’s Week

Posted by | April 6, 2009 .

While Charles gave me the shivers about selling the site, Rich Tretola looked all serious about a Microsoft’s announcement that Silverlight would be on iPhone. That is second to only Opera’s face gestures this April Fool’s day. Ted, on the other hand, got philosophical about positives and negatives. Aral continued to dig deeper in his […]

Advances in Flash SEO

Posted by | March 18, 2009 .

First watch this Youtube video that Duane Nickull posted. It shows how little information swf2html extracts and also how Ichabod, the headless Adobe Flash Player used by Google can extract text from multiple states of an SWF. Bravo! The video is very grainy and you better download the higher resolution MP4 through KeepVid or elsewhere. […]

Rounding Up SXSW Week

Posted by | March 16, 2009 .

Aral gave a talk on the Open Source Flash Book at the SXSW Interactive 2009 and his blog made to the Wikio top 30 UK technology blogs for March 2009. Ryan has some details about the Adobe Events at the SXSW. Many people on the blogosphere recommend a session on Flash Player Internals available on […]

Rounding Up Last Week

Posted by | February 2, 2009 .

You have all no doubt heard about the 100 million Adobe AIR installs and 55% penetration of Flash Player 10. Good for Adobe, congratulations!, but I am finding these regularly pumped out numbers increasingly boring. Sorry. Ted made a post about Adobe MAX between 2008 and 2009 after returning from MAX Japan 2009. And David […]

Rounding Up Last Week From Layoffs to Happiness

Posted by | January 26, 2009 .

Last week saw big layoffs in the tech industry and the NYTimes reports about many more to come this week. Adobe is conducting a survey about the website usability. Think we had a tiny role in pushing it? Whatever, please take the survey when requested. It is small, hardly takes five minutes, and I believe […]

Problems With the Adobe Websites

Posted by | January 14, 2009 .

I griped about it in the past, but let me rap the Adobe website domain once again. The reason why this has come up is that Adobe is partnering with Broadcom and Intel separately to bring Flash Platform to TVs, and I visited Adobe.com for the original official sources. The search field continues to be […]

To Be or Not To Be Open Source

Posted by | January 8, 2009 .

Today I read a three-week-old article on The Register about the challenges Adobe has been facing by keeping its software open for the past two years. I’m still thinking about it. The gist of the article is: 1. Most/All Flex committers are Adobe employees. 2. Sharing ideas without exposing the commercial ones is a tight-rope […]

Among the Best Posts of 2008 on Flex RIA

Posted by | January 7, 2009 .

As you all know, I have recently tried to look how Flex RIA was a year ago through the Wayback machine. While it was not possible for me to read each and every post made over the year, here are some I found interesting among the popular ones in each month. Jan, 2008: It was […]
