Fashion retail chain Forever 21 has found itself the target of a lawsuit for allegedly making illegal copies of Photoshop and other software applications. Adobe, Autodesk Inc., and Corel Corp. are all three claiming copyright violations in the suit, accusing Forever 21 of making unauthorized copies of various software for use on multiple company computers. "Widespread use of illegal copies of Plaintiffs’ software products (commonly known as software piracy) has caused, and continues to cause, significant harm to Plaintiffs and undermines Plaintiffs’ investments in their products," the lawsuit reads...

At this point, I think it's safe to call the security level of Adobe's Flash player "asinine". Sometimes, it feels like full-blown OSes, such as Windows, have far fewer bugs. When is the last time you remember having to update your OS with an emergency patch? Now how about Adobe Flash? Exactly. Well, since Adobe didn't put it in its New Years' resolutions to release more secure software, this is a reality that's not going to change too soon. Yesterday, the company issued a patch for bug CVE-2015-0311, one that exposes a user's browser to become vulnerable to code injection, and the now infamous... Read more...
Android users who are feeling bummed over the fact that Adobe's Lightroom for mobile has been available on iOS for a few months now have reason to smile today -- it's now available on Android, too! There is a caveat, however, which is that it's only compatible with Android phones at the moment, which leaves out devices like the Nexus 9 and any other tablet.Other requirements include an ARMv7-based quad-core CPU running at 1.7GHz or higher, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and Android Jellybean, KitKat, or Lollipop. Provided you meet the criteria, you can download Adobe Lightroom for mobile... Read more...
Few technologies make regulation-happy government officials itch like the Internet. While Spain has been garnering headlines for taxing Google News, Russia has introduced Internet laws designed to keep data about Russian users in Russia. Google now plans to close its engineering presence in Moscow, though it will maintain other operations in Russia. Image Credit: Google The new rules, which will go into effect in January 2015, require tech companies to store customer data in Russia. That’s good news for Russian data storage companies, but Western companies like Google have been concerned by... Read more...
If you have Flash Player installed, and chances are pretty overwhelming that you do, you'll want to make sure that you're equipped with the latest and greatest version. Last month, Adobe issued a Flash update that blocked certain exploit kits from being able to take advantage of a user's PC, but as it turns out, that update wasn't enough to prevent against new related exploits in the future. This update, as you'd expect, helps take care of that. Adobe lists these versions as vulnerable: Adobe Flash Player 15.0.0.223 and earlier versions Adobe Flash Player 13.0.0.252 and earlier 13.x versions... Read more...

Adobe issued a substantial update to its Creative Cloud platform back in June, and today, it's rolled-out another - just in time for the company's MAX conference. Despite the fact that only three or so months have passed since that June update, there's an incredible amount of meat with this one. The new personalized Welcome Screen For starters, 9 mobile apps have either been updated or added, and multiple desktop applications have been enhanced, either for performance, capabilities, or touch. In particular, Illustrator's desktop interface will suit touchscreens much better than before, while Photoshop,... Read more...
In a move to supplement its list of applications available on its Chromebooks, Google has announced a partnership with Adobe on its official website. The new partnership will bring Adobe’s Creative Cloud onto Chromebooks starting with a streaming version of Photoshop. Google revealed that the new feature will be available first to U.S.-based Adobe education customers as part of a beta. Named Project Photoshop Streaming, is exclusive to consumers who have a paid Creative Cloud membership. Those who apply will receive a response within three to four weeks. “This streaming version of Photoshop... Read more...
Adobe has today released an updated version of its Flash plugin to address "critical" issues, and believe us when we say that no time should be wasted in making sure you get that up-to-date version. At the core, this bug could result in remote code execution being possible, which is to say that somebody could potentially run malicious code on your PC, or ultimately take control of it. This vulnerability was discovered by Google security researcher Michele Spagnuolo and a tool called Rosetta Flash. This tool has the ability to translate a standard SWF Flash file into standard alphanumeric characters,... Read more...
Here's a bit of good news -- a new study shows that we're not a bunch of couch potatoes flipping through cable and satellite TV channels all day. The bad news? We may have simply transitioned our viewing habits to connected devices. However you want to slice it, Adobe today released its Q1 2014 Video Benchmark Report and in it stated that online TV consumption across all devices grew a staggering 246 percent year-over-year. March was a particularly busy month, as it set a new record in total authentications. Game consoles and over-the-top (OTT) devices showed the biggest growth with a 539 percent... Read more...
Four major technology firms agreed to pay a combined $324.5 million to settle what essentially boiled down to a wage-fixing lawsuit. Employees of Adobe, Apple, Google, and Intel alleged that their employers conspired to suppress salaries by secretly agreeing not to poach talent from each other. More than 64,000 workers were represented in the lawsuit. The employees settled for far less than the $3 billion they were planning to seek if the case went to trial, which was set for May 27. Federal antitrust law allows for damages awards to be tripled, so the four companies involved could have potentially... Read more...
Do you consider yourself a storyteller blessed with the gift of gab? If so -- or if you simply have a sexy voice you want to show off -- you might be interested in Adobe Voice, a new animated video app for iPad users. Adobe's new app pits you as the engaging storyteller/narrator and allows you to create and share video stories without any filming or editing. The app is fleshed out with over 25,000 professionally designed icons, which you can supplement with millions of images available on the web or your own photo collection. Adobe's vision is to breathe new life into static presentation formats... Read more...
We've suspected that 3D printing would be the next underground technology to emerge on the mainstream scene, and it's nuggets like this that continue to support that belief. With a major showing at CES this year, the 3D printing world is poised to make a serious impact in Main Street, and even Adobe can't ignore it. The famed software giant has just announced 3D printing capabilities within Adobe Photoshop CC. It's available right away to cloud-based customers, enabling them to "easily and reliably build, refine, preview, prepare and print 3D designs." With today’s release of Photoshop CC,... Read more...
Malware writers are a tricky bunch, and if you're not suspicious of every little thing on the Internet, you could fall prey to one of their many tactics, like spoofing software updates. It's not really a new method, though apparently serving up fake updates for Google Chrome and a fake media player update that appears to come from Adobe are popular right now. To make it look even more authentic, both updates are digitally signed by valid VeriSign code signing certificates, ZDNet reports. This isn't the first time malware writers have tapped VeriSign to appear legitimate, though it's not always... Read more...
