Microsoft just burned Adobe

Dean Hachamovitch, the general manager for Microsoft's Internet Explorer, just burned Adobe and everything that is Flash by supporting Steve Jobs' claim that HMTL5 is the future. Woah. We seriously don't know what to think about this statement. We had some serious doubts that Apple, by itself, would be able to bring the world away from Flash and into HTML5 but we were just smacked across the face with a statement supporting Steve Jobs... from Microsoft. It appears that Microsoft is really trying [...]

Facebook Video Player for iPad

By |April 14th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The name really says it all. Facebook Video Player for iPad is a new app from Kemal Taskin & Elma DIGIT@L. This app is -- I mean this seriously -- one of my favorite apps on the iPad. I guess I would consider myself a Facebook junkie but my wife is a lot worse so I don't feel that bad. Love you, babe. One of the biggest complaints about the iPad, iPhone and/or iPod touch is its lack of Flash. I've been brainwashed into thinking that Flash sucks by Apple (in truth, it really does... at least on t [...]

Apple removes fake Flash ads from the iPad promotional video

By |January 31st, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , |

Remember the speculative post we wrote about the fact that the iPad is showing Flash content in Apple's promotional video? Well, it's been replaced with a non-Flash version that shows the infamous blue lego. It appears as though we're never going to see Flash on the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch... especially with Steve's comments from the Apple town hall meeting. We're not terribly disappointed with Apple's decision to avoid Flash... we're more disappointed with the fact that most sites are using [...]

The future of Apple according to Steve Jobs

By |January 31st, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Mac Rumors has a great post outlining some things that Steve said to the Infinite Loop Apple employees this past week. Two independent sources have confirmed that the following bullets are topics that were discussed in the town hall meeting: Steve was very candid about their relationship with Google. He explained that Apple didn't get into the search business, Google came into the phone business. He's obviously not very happy about the situation and as a result... we're going to get better softw [...]

iPad may have Flash after all… Updated: nope.

By |January 29th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , |

That or Apple is doctoring their device videos. During the keynote presentation on Wednesday, the iPad ran into several infamous blue legos of death. That means the device they were using for the presentation was not running Flash... this is not debatable. However, several sites have come to report that the promotional video of the iPad shows Flash content. The picture to the right is from the iPad video on Apple's website. In it, the iPad is browsing a website that displays a food ad on the lef [...]

iPad doesn’t appear to support Flash playback

By |January 27th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , |

Some disheartening news came about during Apple's event today: it doesn't look like the new iPad will support Flash any more than the iPhone (not at all). Several times during today's keynote, we saw the blue lego with a question mark -- evidence that the machine is not currently running Flash. One of the greatest criticisms about the iPhone is its lack of Flash playback in the mobile Safari browser. I don't personally miss flash as it causes more issues that it's worth. It's a resource and batt [...]
