Adobe patches latest Flash and Reader vulnerabilities

Just recently, new critical vulnerabilities were reported in Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Reader. While Google and Adobe managed to deliver an update to secure Chrome users, it took a few more days to put together the necessary bits for the general Flash and Reader using public. Fortunately, the work is now complete, and Adobe has posted updated downloads for both products. You should be...

Adobe Flash Player 10.2 will land in the Android Market today, bringing with it modest performance improvements for Android 2.2 and 2.3, and hardware acceleration for 3.0. Flash 10.2 is also the first version of Flash to work on the Motorola Xoom tablet. Engadget says that they "saw a slight but noticeable boost in framerate when playing a YouTube trailer at 480p" on their Droid 2, and that...

Kongregate Arcade, the one-stop shop for Flash games on Android, has been updated with a new welcome screen and Android 3.0 Honeycomb compatibility. Every screen in the updated app supports landscape-mode, the welcome screen sports a "hot new games" carousel and huge buttons that allow quick access to just about every part of the Arcade, and users can now earn badges in games without signing...

Adobe Flash Media Gateway enables VoIP and video conferencing from Flash Player and AIR

Adobe announced yesterday that you'll soon be able to make VoIP calls right from Flash Player. A server solution from Adobe called Flash Media Gateway will enable you to make calls to landlines, cell phones, and computers using an SIP gateway. And if you happen to have a webcam (and who doesn't these days), it will even support video chat using H.264. The interconnection fun doesn't stop there...

Support Details gives you system details instantly

I really enjoy what have come to be known as single-serving sites. These are sites that do only one specific thing, but the best of them do that thing exceedingly well. My new favorite site of this kind is Support Details. The URL is super easy to remember (supportdetails.com), and when you pay the site a visit, it lists a bunch of details about your computer that you can include when making a...

Could an Antitrust Suit Scare Apple into Changing iPhone SDK?

In what's sure to cause no less than three solid months of daily rumors and several thousand highly repetitive tweets, the Department of Justice and the FTC have apparently begun discussing Apple, and whether or not they should open a full antitrust investigation over the recent changes to the iPhone SDK -- specifically how third-party development tools like Adobe Flash CS5 have been banned from...

Adobe announces AIR, Flash for smartphones

Adobe has announced that Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR are both coming to smartphones, starting with devices running Google's Android operating system. We've been expecting to see Flash Player 10.1 for a while, but it looks like it should be coming pretty soon. A beta version has already been made available to mobile developers and content providers. Adobe says it should be available to...

Adobe wants Flash on the iPad, but Apple customers don't

There's an interesting post up at Adobe's Flash Platform blog, referring to Apple's new iPad as "a broken link" because it doesn't support Flash. When the Flash elements of the New York Times website failed to load during Steve Jobs' unveiling of the iPad, the message from Apple was pretty clear: no, this thing doesn't have Flash, and no, we don't care. It seems like a callous attitude from...

Adobe release Flash Player 10.1 with GPU acceleration for HD video

This morning Adobe is launching a beta version of Flash Player 10.1 with support for hardware decoding of H.264 Flash video. In other words, if you have a supported graphics card (PDF link), you should be able to watch high definition and high quality Flash video without killing your CPU. This comes as particularly good news for people who have picked up small laptops and nettops based on the...

Your Timetoast is ready! Build timelines with this web app

Timetoast is an attractive new timeline app built on Abode's Flash and Flex. Do you like your timelines interactive and embeddable? Sure beats the last timeline we made (crayons and construction paper may have been involved)! This could be a good tool for bloggers who want to enhance a post with a detailed history of the topic, or for anyone in school who doesn't want to approach the...

Cameroid - blatant Photobooth rip, but well done

Windows users: if you've ever been jealous of a Mac simply because it comes with Photobooth built in, (you know, that silly webcam toy that lets you make yourself and your friends look ridiculous? Yeah, that one...) well now you have one less reason to be jealous of Macs. A website called Cameroid has taken the Photobooth concept and put it online. And let's just say that if you didn't know...
