Nearly every company that makes some sort of product has a research and development (R&D) division. This applies just as much to software developers as it does to hardware manufacturers. In an ideal world, the time and money spent on R&D makes it way into improvements in existing products and sometimes even into brand new products. As reality has it, though, many concepts and prototypes never make it out of the lab; and more often than not, the general pubic is never aware of what is going on deep inside a company's secret R&D lair. Adobe has decided to break with the secret approach, however, and show the world some of the ideas coming out of its Advanced Technology Labs  (ATL).... Read more...

Over the past few months, we have seen previews of some GPU-accelerated Adobe effects at events being held by both NVIDIA and AMD / ATI. Today, however, NVIDIA launched a website showcasing many more of the GPU-accelerated aspects of Adobe's upcoming Creative Suite 4, due out some time in October.According to NVIDIA, "Adobe is the latest in a trend of visual computing companies grabbing on to the massively parallel processing power of NVIDIA GPUs for more than just rendering pixels to the screen. Adobe Creative Suite 4 is the most important addition to this trend because of its market position as the leading artistic tool suite.With NVIDIA GPU acceleration, Adobe Creative Suite 4 enables a faster,...

It's hard to say if Adobe is saying "me first," or "me too." They've launched new applications for their suite of web-based document generation software at Acrobat.com that goes head to head with Google Docs and Microsoft's Office Live Workspace. Now you can have a virtual typing pigpile hosted by Adobe, too. At the heart of the new launch is Buzzword, the web-based word processor that Adobe acquired last year. Buzzword’s full functionality is integrated into Acrobat.com, allowing users to create documents and collaborate on them with others. Different permissions can be assigned to each collaborator, and edits all tracked and saved with version control. Of course, since this is all done over... Read more...
Apple and Adobe have had a fairly cozy relationship over the years, a few misunderstanding not withstanding. We can’t help but wonder how we’d define their relationship in a year or so when Adobe is shipping 64-bit applications for the Windows platform while OS X users have nothing but 32-bit options. When Mac users begin complaining, they’ll really only have to look to Apple to find the source of their problem."At the WWDC show last June, however, Adobe & other developers learned that Apple had decided to stop their Carbon 64 efforts. This means that 64-bit Mac apps need to be written to use Cocoa (as Lightroom is) instead of Carbon," he explained. "This means that we'll need to rewrite... Read more...
Adobe is today releasing their new AIR software development system, which will allow end users to achieve their own personal information cloud that straddles their digital journey across the desktop, the Internet, and various smart devices like phones.  Adobe sees AIR as a major advance that builds on its Flash multimedia software. Flash is the engine behind Web animations, e-commerce sites and many streaming videos. It is, the company says, the most ubiquitous software on earth, residing on almost all Internet-connected personal computers.But most people may never know AIR is there. Applications will look and run the same whether the user is at his desk or his portable computer, and soon... Read more...

As with any leaks of information from secret sources, take this with a grain of salt until you hear it from the source. That being said, ThinkSecret does have a very good track record for this kind of information, so it's possible this is at least very close to current plans. Read on: "Adobe plans to offer six bundles with various Creative Suite 3 applications: CS3 Web Standard, CS3 Web Premium, CS3 Design Standard, CS3 Design Premium, CS3 Production Premium, and the CS3 Master Collection. The least expensive of the six will be the CS3 Web Standard bundle, which will retail for $999 and includes Flash CS3 Professional, Dreamweaver CS3, Fireworks CS3, and Contribute CS3. For an additional... Read more...
Informationweek has an article about Adobe deciding that they're not going to lift a finger to alter existing products to make them more compatible with Windows Vista. Some might be quick to point out that Adobe and MS have had issues over Vista & Office 2007 features, but do keep in mind that Adobe had a similar policy when they announced that they weren't going to make an OS X Universal Binary version of CS2. "Users of Adobe Systems' digital publishing products, including Photoshop, InDesign, and Dreamweaver, will have to shell out for new versions of the software if they want to run them without glitches on Microsoft's new Windows...

While currently this news only affects Acrobat 8 volume licenses on the Windows OSes, it seems like a good step in the right direction. For those who have been having upgrade issues with single user versions of Acrobat, hang in there. "Effective immediately, all Acrobat 8 for Windows installation media will be provided with ALM disabled. The final date for availability of ALM-related processes on the Adobe Licensing Website is April 9, 2007." Will we see an Apple ad poking fun at this being a Windows problem?  Maybe.... Read more...
Hey folks, I just got back from the new Batman movie and I was fairly impressed. Not nearly as cartoonish as the previous ones, and it gets back to what I love most about Batman... no special powers, no back-up forces, just some crazy rich guy in a cape with a cool car. That's a real super hero! Anyway, here's the news: Desktop DDR3 Modules Ready for Retail in 12 Months @ CoolTechZone "Manufacturers are finally being optimistic about DDR2 sales, and DDR2 has been through various speed steps to actually be a worthwhile standard with Intel platform with 1066MHz system bus. Although the market appears to be optimistic, DDR2 sales aren't nearly anywhere close to what manufacturers might expect... Read more...
