Flash Player 10.1 to support smartphones, NVIDIA powered netbooks... next year

Adobe Flash has become the standard protocol for web video over the last few years. And while Flash is capable of some pretty excellent video quality, it's not exactly light on system resources. In fact, it's kind of a CPU-hog, which is why some computers with slower processors (and most netbooks) struggle to play high quality of high definition video from YouTube, Hulu, and other online video...

Adobe open sources Media Framework, text engine behind TimesReader 2.0

This morning, Adobe announced the release of two major pieces of software as open source- the OSMF (Open Source Media Framework) and TLF (Text Layout Framework) - under the Mozilla Public License. TLF is the new text-rendering engine in Air 1.5, where it handles things like the typographical wizardry in TimesReader 2.0. A major goal with TLF was to provide web application developers a set of...

Adobe, NVidia working to improve Flash Player performance

I enjoyed my MSI Wind netbook while I had it, but there was one task that always gave it fits: running Flash-based anything. Games stuttered, YouTube clips were choppy, and the system's tiny fan spun like a tin can in a tornado.

If you're not a fan of Flash, you definitely don't want to check out Sprint's new Plug Into Now dashboard. If you dare to click through, you'll be treated with sensory overload, internet style. The page is a cornucopia of snippets of information, with one theme: Now. A computerized female voice periodically speaks, saying things like "13,628 letters are being mailed right now", or "8,971,000...

Adobe release updated Flash player for mobile phones

Adobe has announced that their next generation mobile Flash player is available. Unfortunately it doesn't look like you'll be able to slap the software onto your old school cellphone yourself. Cellphone makers will be responsible for offering the upgrades for existing phones and building it into future devices. NTT DoCoMo and Nokia already plan to offer Flash Lite 3. T he latest mobile version of...
