Adobe Flash Player 10

Posted by Sravan | October 15, 2008 | 3 Comments

Adobe released Flash Player 10 this morning. As part of updating the product home page, they went a little overboard and wrote:

Adobe® Flash® Player 10 software is a cross-platform browser plug-in that delivers breakthrough web experiences and is installed on more than 98% of Internet-connected desktops.

Anyway, the new version comes with a lot of new features:
1. Streaming is faster than ever with streams that automatically adjust to changing network conditions.
2. Audio can be generated dynamically and supplied to the sound buffer.
3. Sound and mathematics functions can be processed by the Adobe Pixel Bender JIT compiler.
4. A new vector data […] Continue Reading…

Flash 9 on PS3

Posted by Charles | October 14, 2008 | 5 Comments

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) had mentioned that there will be firmware update for PSP 5.0 and PS3 2.5. One interesting new feature is that the PS3 browser will run Flash 9. Considering the PS3 is a very powerful connected computer itself, Flash or Flex developers should think out of box more for developing applications/games. Game console is increasingly becoming a very lucrative application platform.

Around the World in a Flex Mashup

Posted by Sravan | October 14, 2008 | Comment

Most of us like travelling around the world, even though we may not be conscious about Mother Earth. But with the current situation of the world economy, we are forced to tighten our purse strings more than ever. :(

Journeys partially fills our appetite for travel. Through the Flex website, we can go around a virtual world based on real earth maps (using Yahoo! Maps API), visit real places, learn about them from people who’ve been there, and make friends with like-minded folks. And it is a marvellous experience. Don’t believe me? Just see me below greeting you all from […] Continue Reading…

Google’s New Earth Layer for Marine Sanctuaries

Posted by Charles | October 14, 2008 | Comment

Last week, Google tried to make people realize why the world needs saving. In the past, we’ve touched on how Google is using its Google Earth platform to help scientists, whether it be better visualizing their data or better explaining what that data mean to the general public. At the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s World Conservation Conference, taking place in Barcelona, Spain, it was announced that the IUCN is making use of Google Earth Outreach to launch a new layer to Google Earth that pinpoints the locations of all the protected marine areas on the planet. You […] Continue Reading…

Is it Good Time to Buy Adobe?

Posted by Charles | October 13, 2008 | Comment

At last week’s annual meeting, Oracle’s top dog told shareholders, “Acquisitions that we have been looking at for some time may now be more attractive.” That made me start thinking the good old topic again, is anybody buying Adobe? If look at Adobe’s stock in for 2008, you would find that Adobe was very hard to swallow early this year. I recalled read from a magazine that Adobe’s CEO said they were too big now to be bought out. But how about now? Here is another chart showing all the big dudes that could be the potential buyers. […] Continue Reading…

A Week of Announcements

Posted by Sravan | October 13, 2008 | Comment

Adobe announced the launch of Flash Media Encoding Server to collide head-on with Microsoft’s Silverlight browser plug-in. The software can convert native Windows and other media formats into those which can be played using Flash runtime. The pre-processing filters in it can perform color space conversions, normalize audio, and sharpen video. It is to be shipped towards the end of this year, supposedly costing $6000. I hope this will not roll out with location-specific prices.

Kuneri announced the release of SWFPack beta last week. SWFPack is a mobile development tool for creating Flash Lite installers for mobile devices. According to the […] Continue Reading…

Flash App in iPhone

Posted by Charles | October 10, 2008 | 2 Comments

Well, not exactly a Flash in iPhone but it’s the closed thing we’ve got so far. Mike Huntington came up with a solution to write Flash application for iPhone. How he did it? Flash and Cocoa-Touch are so much alike … I was able to first build my application in Flash (making sure everything worked correctly) and quickly ported it over to iPhone. Nice work, Mike! Here is screenshot, which is made with Flash CS3.
