YouTube Defaults To HTML5 For Their Videos

Since the time of Steve Jobs and the introduction of the iPhone, Apple made it pretty clear that the continued use of Adobe Flash was the wrong direction.

Adobe – Stats for Nerds – playful or insulting?

Adobe Flash is one of those applications/plug-ins that ‘nerds’ hate for a few reasons. It’s bloated, it has security problems, it has one of the worst upgrade processes for a required Internet application/plug-in, and with the exclusion of Google Chrome adding this plug-in for your web browser is a PITA because Adobe doesn’t work with …

Adobe Flash crashes Dragon NaturallySpeaking

I recently ran into a situation with Internet Explorer and Firefox, on how it uses Adobe Flash. Apparently, Adobe Flash has created a conflict between it and Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11. Leave it to Adobe to create such a conflict from something so stupid as flash and interrupting the ability to do voice-recognition. I found the …

Adobe Flash gets automatic updates – as it’s dying.

One of the things that I hated about Adobe, and Adobe Flash was that it was one of those applications that was absolutely required to constantly be updated; consequently unless you wanted to miss out on a lot of content over the Internet you had to have Adobe Flash installed on your local PC, to …

Adobe releases a 64 bit version of Flash- as Flash is going out…

I was checking out the blog for Adobe and… oh, wha-la! I saw this… http://blogs.adobe.com/flashplayer/2011/10/adobe-flash-player-11-air-11-available-later-today.html I was looking at this and thinking; oh, good. Just as Adobe Flash is about to go the way of the dodo bird. With everything moving in the direction of HTML5, it makes perfect sense for Adobe to keep pushing …

So, Google’s Chrome is going to sole supporter of Adobe Flash?

When Apple announced that it wasn’t going to support Adobe flash with its mobile devices, the world was stunned. How could something so popular not support Adobe flash? Then, it was a bold move… in another bold move, Microsoft has announced that Internet Explorer 10 will not allow any plug-ins— at all. This means Adobe …

Microsoft is making the mistake with WebGL that Apple made with Adobe Flash

Microsoft has recently indicated that ‘basically’ they have no intentions of adopting WebGL for Internet Explorer. And I’m not able to help but think that they forget where they are… they’re on the downward slope of ‘…we need you’. I’m a fan of Mozilla Firefox, but it’s not to say that I’m oblivious to the …

Another reason to hate Adobe Flash… their updates.

I’m not able to be alone in this… I’m damn near pleading with adobe here on this one. Please stop with these obtuse update Windows. They’re coming out like every week or so and the update process is so obtuse; I nearly can’t stand it. Are you putting efforts in to give me another reason …

YouTube Encoding videos to WebM is the right choice

Adobe Flash video has been a hassle for years. First with having to even install the Adobe Flash player and then to endure the lack of timely updates and security problems that Adobe has had with the plug-in. And up until recently, Adobe had not released a player for Adobe Flash or the 64-bit systems; …

The ‘Angry Birds’ is a Paradox and a Success

The success of Angry Birds simply staggers me. For years developers were fixated on developing games that were 3D and first person shooters; very rare was anyone interested in going back to the ‘basic’ 2d display… But for some strange reason, Angry Birds has simply taken off on a level of success that’s rivaled by …
