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...
Apple's lawsuits against Samsung and HTC have drawn commentary that the company might be attempting to litigate its competitors out of the market rather than relying on the free market to decide who had superior products. The new, authorized Steve Jobs biography, however, paints the company's legal actions in a different light. Jobs is famous... Read more...
Adobe has delivered a number of announcements at its MAX 2011 conference, including partnerships, acquisitions, and new products.

In a breathtakingly long blog post, Adobe announced that Adobe Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 will launch early this October.

Specifically, the... Read more...
Tons of new Windows 8 details are flowing out after BUILD 2011, and the trickle has yet to stop. Adobe's chipping in with a very important tidbit: Flash.

There's been a lot of hubbub recently surrounding Adobe's newest software reveal, and how it related to iOS. Unfortunately, it doesn't add Flash "support" to the iPod touch, iPad or iPhone. Wouldn't that be nice? That said, we are still moving in a positive direction. Adobe Pass, Flash Access 3.0 and Flash Media... Read more...
Adobe is working to make it easier for designers to build their own Web sites. A new application from Adobe, codenamed Muse, lets designers create and publish functional Web sites in a similar way to how they would mock-up a site in InDesign or Illustrator. Muse offers users a familiar Adobe tool set in a WYSIWYG interface. Muse is not designed... Read more...
With HTML5 grabbing a massive amount of support right out of the gate (and Flash still not being supported on the world's hottest selling tablet), there was speculation that Adobe would jump onto something new in time. Now, the company is unveiling an early preview of a new HTML5 web motion and interaction design tool. It's called Adobe Edge,... Read more...
One of the most annoying things for business travelers has to be the difficulty when it comes time to print something. The advent of e-mail has certainly helped this, but there are still too many occasions where a users simply have to print something, sign it, scan it, and send it back. It's a tedious process and usually is needed immediately.... Read more...
Ah, the Flash vs. Apple battle continues. Despite the fact that Adobe's CEO recently stated that the war between the two mega-companies is over, well, we just aren't sure. The iPad 2 still can't play back Flash videos, and Flash isn't exactly dying anytime soon. Today, appMobi is stepping up to bridge the gap... 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...
Apple and Adobe have a strained past, at least in recent years. When the iPad first launched, one of the biggest arguments against it was its inability to play back Flash content of any kind. For years, and even now, Flash content was huge on the Web, and many suggested that Apple's refusal to support it would lead to tons of negativity surrounding... Read more...
A group of high-powered tech companies has been slapped with a class action suit for conspiring to artificially keep employee wages low. The companies being sued are Adobe, Apple, Google, Intel, Intuit, Lucasfilm, and Pixar. Sound familiar? It should. These companies, with the exception of Lucasfilm, were investigated... Read more...
If you're an Android user, try not to hit your head on the ceiling fan as you jump for joy. Why? Well, Adobe last night announced the release of Flash Player 10.2 for Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablets and is available for download in the Android Market. Eventually, this could prove to be a big deal, but it looks as though a Honeycomb update... Read more...
Adobe's Photoshop has to be one of the most well recognized image retooling programs on the market, and we doubt the company will be giving up that crown anytime soon. This week, they've announced the Creative Suite 5.5 Production Premium, described as a complete software solution for video and post-production 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...
Adobe showed off a prototype Flash-to-HTML5 converter last October, and now it's released an experimental Labs version for all to try. The tool, called Wallaby will enable developers to convert their Flash code in HTML5, which will get around that nasty "no Flash on iOS" issue. Released at Adobe Labs, not all Flash features are supported,... Read more...

We know that Apple isn't a fan of Adobe Flash, and won't support it on its iOS products, pushing HTML 5 instead. Adobe, while definitely not agreeing with that stance, is nothing if not pragmatic. Thus, at Adobe's MAX 2010 event on Thursday, the company demo'ed a Flash-to-HTML5 converter.  The product is simply a tech demo for now, but... Read more...
