Adobe rewrites Wired Magazine iPad app without Flash, gets it approved by Apple

Wired Magazine's official iPad app was an early casualty of Apple's war on Flash. Working with Wired publisher Conde Nast, Adobe built the app in Flash, but then they had to rewrite using Apple-approved Objective C. Adobe completed the new app and just got it approved for sale in the App Store. The app is a proof of concept for building a magazine app with the same tools Wired uses to make the...

Condé Nast scoops up Ars Technica for Wired

Condé Nast Publications (which owns Wired, Wired.com, and a whole bunch of major magazines) has agreed to purchase Ars Technica for an undisclosed sum. According to TechCrunch, Ars will be placed under the Wired Digital umbrella under CondéNet, which was made whole with the 2006 acquisition of Wired.com, and may be combined with Wired and Wired.com. The sale will be announced some...

The Internet Archive, busy protecting us from ourselves

We don't like to make political statements too often here at DLS. It just seems a lot less complicated to fight over software, or whether or not something is Web 2.0, or pirates and ninjas. Every once in a while, though, something comes up that's just a little too out of line not to mention.

Bill Gates talks about open source. He's doin' it wrong.

We can't deny some of us here at Download Squad love open source software. But there's not a damn fool here that will disagree with the statement: "Bill Gates is an extremely intelligent man." We won't disagree that he's done amazing things for technology as a whole. And yes, we even wish heartily we had the faith in ourselves to say if we had that much moolah, we'd be even half as charitable with...

Dev Chair : A geek solution to the writers strike

As the Writer's Strike continues into the end of January with no real end in sight, most people are running out of quality TV programs to watch. Heck, we're even running out of quality-less programs to watch. Unless you are a fan of reality shows such as Gladiator, there isn't much coming in the next month or so, if at all, for this rapidly evaporating season. I think it is time we in the...

Ubuntu Studio announced for April release

Aimed at being a "multimedia editing flavor of Ubuntu for the Linux audio, video, and graphic enthusiast or professional", Ubuntu Studio was announced this week, with the goal of building a solid multimedia distribution based on Ubuntu's custom flavored Gnome environment. Planned packages include the Soma Suite, Cinelerra, Jahshaka, and Wired, so far. I'm sure, or at least hope, that other popular...

Condé Nast buys Reddit

Everyone is aquiring everyone on this spooky Halloween. Google bought JotSpot, now Condé Nast, the owners of Wired magazine, have bought Reddit. Similiar to Digg, Reddit is a website that lists what the popular news is online, by users voting, and submitting articles. Michael Arrington scooped the news of the deal, and that Reddit employees will be packing up and moving from Boston to the...
