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... Read more...
One area of technology that never ceases to amaze me is storage. Despite the extreme complications in increasing densities, it continues to happen, and while at one point an 8GB mechanical hard drive seemed incredible, 4,000GB models are easily found today (with 5,000GB models on the way). When looking at "small"... Read more...
In the world of software, it's not uncommon to learn of a program that's implemented vulnerable code for over a decade (Java, anyone?), but where gaming's concerned, that's another story. According to a security researcher simply going by "Joe", one such vulnerability has made Bethesda its home. Clearly the... Read more...
When it comes to solid state storage, or just about any type of storage technology for that matter, there are two things you can never get enough of -- capacity and speed.  SATA-based Solid State Drives offer a good balance of both currently, as NAND Flash density continues to scale, but they can't compete with...

There's little doubt that HTML5 is going to have a huge impact on our Web-surfing, as it's far more capable than previous standards to the point where entire plugins can be replaced. Plugins such as Flash, Silverlight and perhaps even the ever-vulnerable Java. While the Web remains rich with Flash-based content, whether it be video, games,... Read more...
Adobe's Flash platform has been a hot button topic for years now -- arguably, ever since the iPad launched with no support for Flash-enabled Web pages. For Microsoft, it's a different story. The company has just published a blog post stating the following: "Starting tomorrow, we are updating Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8 and Windows RT... Read more...
OCZ has released more details of the VXL 1.3 cache and virtualization software it teased before this week’s CeBIT 2013 in Hannover, Germany, and the upgraded offering includes virtualized “SAN-less”, highly available, fault tolerant environments courtesy of the software’s new synchronous data...

Before reading on, we must warn you that your next 20 minutes should be free, because once you discover the Flash tool "Scale of the Universe", that's just about the amount of time you'll need before you'll be able to focus on other things. Its goal is to help put the universe into perspective, size-wise, from... Read more...
In the earlier days of the Web, our browsers were simple. If one crashed, it was likely due more to poor programming than whatever content you were viewing. The opposite can be said today, where many websites have the potential to crash any number of plugins you've got equipped - especially true for... Read more...
Your HotHardware Public Service Announcement (PSA) of the day is that there's a new version of Google's Chrome browser available to download, Chrome 24. The latest build is heavy on security updates and short on feature enhancements, though it does add support for MathML (with a shout out to WebKit volunteer Dave Barton). Also included is...

EMC has been talking publicly about an all-flash datacenter storage array for about a year and a half, and the company has put its money where its mouth is, so to speak, by developing acquiring flash array maker XtremIO this spring and developing flash products such as its VCache enterprise flash storage. Project X, the code name for this... Read more...
For about as long as it's existed, Adobe's Flash plugin has been one of the most vulnerable pieces of software on the planet. Much like an operating system itself, most people readily install a Flash plugin soon after a fresh install, so it's no wonder that people are often on the hunt to see what kind of exploits can...

OnLive is on quite a tear. Emerging out of beta less than two years ago with a cloud gaming service, OnLive has already far exceeded its original scope. The initial service rollout was followed by gaming hardware for the TV, mobile capabilities, integration with a number of different types of devices, and even rumors of a Netflix rival movie Read more...
Ever the vertical marketeer, Apple is reported to be in talks to acquire flash maker Anobit, according to a Reuters report. Anobit already makes some components in Apple products including the iPad and iPhone, so the acquisition would enable Apple to house some of its hardware under its own very protective wing. The...

It hasn't even been 12 months since multiple manufacturers were positioning Adobe Flash support as a centerpiece of their tablet strategies. Flash, we were told, was required for a "full Internet experience," and vital to the presentation of rich content. Today, Adobe dropped a bombshell. From this point forward, "We... Read more...
Not long ago, we learned of an issue that affects all systems running Flash. Although most users' minds automatically think of the vulnerabilities they could be exposed to on their PC, because the BlackBerry PlayBook supports flash, this tablet is also susceptible. For this reason, RIM is releasing a new version of the BlackBerry Tablet OS... Read more...
Guess what? HP's TouchPad seems to be darn good at Flash. Yes, Adobe's Flash. As in, the Flash that no iOS device is capable of handling, despite tons of public backlash. Apple's pretty much set on never supporting Flash, hoping to hold out until most web video is converted over to the more universally accepted HTML5. It's quite possible that... Read more...
With the launch of the iPad 2, the roar for having Flash on mobile devices seems to be weakening. It was viewed as a major pitfall for the first iPad, but things are a bit different now. For one, there are a lot of Android devices already on the market that support Flash viewing, and also, a lot of websites have... Read more...
Steve Jobs and the entire Cupertino gang can officially stick out their tongues and waggle their tail ends in the direction of Adobe. Why?

No, today isn't April Fool's Day. But it sure feels like it. Apple is notorious for taking a stand and sticking with it, regardless of criticism. They haven't backed down on their resistance to add Flash support, and they haven't backed down on their App Store regulations that prevents app makers from creating apps that "duplicate" functionality...

Yep, it's finally here! Flash Player 10.1 has finally been made official for Google's Nexus One, enabling it to play back Flash content and display Flash websites in a way that the iPod touch, iPad and iPhone can only dream of doing. The N1 has had a beta version for a while now, one that we mentioned (and loved) in our Android 2.2 review.... Read more...
