Finally, Flash for iPhone!?!


According to boygeniusreport.com:

“Adobe has officially confirmed that Flash is pretty much ready to go. This can open up the floodgates to new applications and developers who were hoping to write some Flash-based apps.”

“Upon a direct question from the audience, Paul Betlem for the first time publicly confirmed that Adobe is actively developing a Flash Player for Apple’s popular phone. He said (not direct quote) ‘My team is working on Flash on the iPhone, but it’s a closed platform.’ He noted that Apple makes all the decisions, so in other words, the ball is in Apple’s yard at this time. If Apple says yes, Adobe will have the player available in a very short time.”

Could it be true? Finally?

We have been down this road before but after a full year without Flash, it is time – come on Apple!

iPhone Flash in early development

MacNN | Adobe: iPhone Flash in early development
49E34ECA-932F-4F3C-834E-42575D92639E.jpgAn iPhone version of Adobe’s ubiquitous Flash plug-in is still early into development, the company has admitted. In an earnings call for Adobe’s second financial quarter, CEO Shantanu Narayen has responded to questions on if and when Flash will be ready for the iPhone 3G, which itself is only expected to ship on July 11th.

Apple has long blocked the normal desktop version of Flash from the iPhone, insisting that it consumes too much battery power.
“With respect to the iPhone, we are working on it,” says Narayen. “We have a version that’s working on the [SDK] emulation. This is still on the computer and you know, we have to continue to move it from a test environment onto the device and continue to make it work. So we are pleased with the internal progress that we’ve made to date.”

Apple has meanwhile begun parallel development with SproutCore, a JavaScript framework that my provide functionality similar to Flash. The latter standard is still likely to be needed however, as it is used on many popular media-heavy websites.

Mac OS X 10.5.4 to be released soon; fixes Adobe CS3 file corruption

Mac OS X 10.5.4 to be released soon; fixes Adobe CS3 file corruption

5008DE4D-C892-4116-B830-943DFD04DA61.jpgWhen Mac OS X 10.5.3 was released at the end of last month it was a massive download, tipping the scales at 420 MB. Unfortunately with the Mac OS X 10.5.3 update we didn’t see the three known iCal bugs resolved but we saw numerous fixes which made many Leopard users happy; however, others faced major issues.

Adobe Creative Suite users quickly discovered that they could no longer correctly save files from inDesign, Photoshop, along with other CS3 programs to a location on a remote server. The files were becoming corrupted which made them useless. Reports of these issues flooded Apple and Adobe forums as frustrated users looked for a way to get these issue resolved.

On Tuesday Apple reported that the first beta release of Mac OS X 10.5.4 would be delivered to developers ahead of the WWDC. Keeping its promise Apple delivered Mac OS X 10.5.4 to developers on Wednesday evening. Mac OS X 10.5.4 isn’t as large as Mac OS X 10.5.3 it only weighs 55MB; however, Creative Suite users should be able to work properly with files that reside on a remote server.

What else should we see in the Mac OS X 10.5.4 update? We should receive additional bug fixes within this update and rumors have been flying that we should receive support for the soon to-be-announced Mobile Me service. That’s right it has been reported that .Mac will be changed to Me.com. The name MobileMe has been reported in many iPhone SDK files.

Also, in the Mac OS X 10.5.4 update it will supposedly include support for a new piece of Apple hardware. Although I would love to see a Mac Tablet I don’t think I will get my wish. Any guesses what it will be?
