Adobe demonstrates multi-touch Android tablet running Flash and AIR

The Web 2.0 Expo is now well and truly underway and the crown jewel of the show -- at least so far -- is an Android tablet prototype running Adobe Flash and AIR 'flawlessly'. If you want to get stuck right in, there are a couple of short videos after the break. No one seems to know the spec of the prototype tablet, so for all we know there might be some crazy CPU inside with gigs of RAM, but it...

Aza Raskin envisions new log-on system for Firefox

Over in his personal blog, Aza Raskin ponders the question of identity. And I don't mean the philosophical or gender sense of the word here; what he says is quite interesting: When you Google the words "sign in", you get about 1.8 billion hits. And every site implements log-in functionality on its own, and somewhat differently. Yes, single sign-in solutions are available (such as XAuth or OAuth),...

Facebook is trying out a new photo upload tool, and it doesn't suck!

Facebook is the most popular photo sharing site in the world, but its photo upload tool has always been clunky and frustrating to use. No longer, thanks to a prototype New Photo Uploader that will hopefully displace the current upload tool very, very soon. Instead of the slow, tough-to-navigate system that loads up thumbnails of every. photo. in. your. pictures. folder. by default (ugh!), this...

How to try out Google's new homepage prototype

There's been a lot of blog hype about Google testing out a new, minimal homepage. It's true, some users have been seeing a Google.com main page with just the logo, the search box, and two buttons. If you're not one of them, but you want to try it out, here's how you can make it happen: Go to Google.com and put this little bit of Javascript into your address bar: ...

Try out new Facebook features before your friends with Prototypes

On the heels of last week's release of @mentions and the new Facebook Lite, today Facebook announced "Prototypes". Prototypes give users a chance to test out cool new applications and functionality "going on inside the walls of Facebook" and to provide feedback to the who built the prototypes, directly. To begin testing and providing feedback, simply find any application available in...

OpenOffice.Org demos ribbon-style UI prototype

A few days ago, OpenOffice.Org's Renaissance Project introduced a new prototype UI. Predictably, the similarity to Microsoft's Ribbon did not go unnoticed by commenters. "The Office ribbon sucks. Please don't copy it," reads one reply. It's important to note that this is just a prototype. As OOO's Frank Loehmann notes in his post, "We just want to be able to test the interaction. Content of the...

Easy web-based proofing with ProofHQ

I rarely get as excited by a Web 2.0 app or service as I am by ProofHQ, which is an innovative and platform-independent way to manage the whole review and approval process for creative documents. At least for me, the most tedious part of the design process is getting feedback and approval. First you have to make sure the file is in a format that a client or collaborator can read (so that you...

Yahoo User Interface gets a big update

Tuesday the good folks from the Yahoo User Interface team released version 2.2.0 of their much loved JavaScript framework. The exciting changes this time around include a browser history manager, a data table control, and advanced button control. These additions are all still considered beta and extend the huge number of components currently available in the YUI library. The Yahoo User Interface,...

Litebox: Lightbox without the bloat

You may or may not be familiar with Lightbox, a handy JavaScript library that lets you create very slick interactive image galleries very easily with plain old HTML and a little elbow grease. Lightbox is great, but not exactly svelte, weighing in at just over 100kb not including images. If that's a little hefty for your taste, check out Litebox, a drop-in replacement for Lightbox that looks like...

Sidewalk: Easy form builder for your web site

Sidewalk is a nice-looking Ajaxy web form builder. While it doesn't have very advanced validation options (just "required" or not), adding and arranging form elements is fast and easy and setting up a new form from scratch really does take just minutes. The drag-and-drop positioning, though becoming passé in the age of Prototype, is still cool, and Sidewalk forms can be embedded...
