Adobe demos Android Table with Flash (and Air)

Thursday, May 6th, 2010 | Business | 6 Comments

From the article, Adobe Shows Google Android Tablet as Apple iPad Alternative, Adobe has demoed an Android tablet.

Now bloggers have seen it in action, thanks to Adobe, which showed off an Android tablet at Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, held May 3 to 6.

The images and videos (and laughs) come courtesy of Zedomax, which scored this scoop, noting the device supports Adobe Systems’ Flash and Air.

Google and Adobe later confirmed that Android would support Flash, the ultimate riposte alliance to Apple’s snubbing of Adobe.

Adobe is obviously trying to bite back at Apple for the many comments about how bad Adobe’s Flash platform is for mobile devices.

Will the table running Flash prove any of Steve Jobs’ ‘Thoughts on Flash’ wrong?

HTML Zen Coding: Speed up HTML creation

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010 | Business | 2 Comments

HTML Zen Coding is a plugin for many popular HTML editors that gives the web developer many tools for quickly building out HTML pages.  If you are comfortable (and enjoy) CSS selectors popular today in many frameworks (such as jQuery) then this may be for you.

When we build HTML documents, we are always building code that is repetitive, and we have ways of making that better.  Creative copying and pasting usually.  Sometimes I feel like I’m playing music on my keyboard when I do my copy paste and edit keyboards commands over and over.

With Zen Coding the process is much “simpler”.  You need to learn the syntax, which is straightforward for most selector friendly folks — but it will shorten your workload and let you do some things that you may have avoided before.

Apple’s Steve Jobs: Thoughts on Flash – and my response

Thursday, April 29th, 2010 | Business | 7 Comments

Steve Jobs posted a response to the whole Flash on iPad / iPhone / iPod issue, an excerpt:

I wanted to jot down some of our thoughts on Adobe’s Flash products so that customers and critics may better understand why we do not allow Flash on iPhones, iPods and iPads. Adobe has characterized our decision as being primarily business driven – they say we want to protect our App Store – but in reality it is based on technology issues. Adobe claims that we are a closed system, and that Flash is open, but in fact the opposite is true. Let me explain.

Monday, April 26th, 2010 | Business | 4 Comments

Rich snippets let you share your reviews, people, businesses, events and recipes more accurately with Google.  Why do what helps Google?  Because Google will, in turn, help you.

If you properly implement rich snippets in either microdata, microformats or RDFa — you will see more traffic thanks to enhanced listings in Google.  Google provides useful snippets in search results that are more likely to draw the eye and attention of end users.

Monday, April 26th, 2010 | Business | 2 Comments

Saw a nicely done introduction tutorial to sending email with PHP:

PHP has a very simple mail function which is used very often for basic text mail messages. What if you need to attach files or if you need to send your e-mail messages via SMTP? Than it’s time to use a more advanced script. This is because the standard mail function has only limited standard capabilities. There are many reasons to use SMTP transport for sending e-mail messages from your web application …
