Windows 8 Tablets, to Support Flash?

Written on September 20, 2011 by Japhet Writ

If tablets running on Windows 8 will be a hit, would a Flash support be essential?

After Microsoft’s previous announcement that the Internet Explorer browser in Windows 8’s Metro interface wouldn’t support plug-ins, Adobe stated that it expects tablets and PCs running the said OS to support Flash “just fine.”

The latter also added on its Adobe Flash Platform Blog that the operating system would support rich web-based games and premium videos. However, Microsoft stated that it worked hard to let Metro rely on older technologies as little as possible. Thus, they concentrated on the latest web technology, the HTML 5.

That said, Adobe pointed out that users will still be able to access Flash content via Windows desktop interface rather than the Metro. Hence, people using the standard computer to browse the Internet are unlikely to be affected. However, viewing Flash content is not going to be easy on tablets that take advantage of the Metro interface. As such, Adobe hopes to get around this problem through its AIR platform — as it does with current tablets based on Android, iOS and BlackBerry tablet OS.

Chrome Gets Its Own PDF Viewer

Written on November 05, 2010 by B Waldorf

Viewing PDF file using Chrome causes headache to many people. But finally, Google came up with its very own PDF viewer. It is still in beta so first thing first, switch first to beta.

For the fans and supporters who are way too loyal with Google Chrome, viewing PDF files in the browser is such a pain in the ass. Good thing Google is rolling out a better way to view PDFs on Chrome. Chrome’s built in PDF reader will be available in beta versions only. If you are using the non-beta Chrome then download the beta to get this update.

“To open a PDF document, you’d typically need to install additional software or browser plug-in in order to view it in a web browser. With the integrated Chrome PDF viewer now available in Chrome’s beta, you can open a PDF document in Chrome without installing additional software. The PDF document will load as quickly and seamlessly as a normal web page in the browser,” said Googler John Abd-El-Malek on Google Chrome blog.

Good job for Google for creating such innovation. This does not mean kicking Adobe on the shins but simply finding faster way to manipulate PDFs.

Adobe Illustrator Acquires an HTML5 Update

Written on September 14, 2010 by B Waldorf

All time favorite vector manager, Illustrator, gets a free update all for the love of HTML5.

Our favorite visual editor made a few updates to die for. Vector and the power it releases are now ready for updates under Illustrator. This upgrades make life easier as it exports our designs into HTML5 and CSS3 compliant content.

Right now, the claim says that it only provides “initial support” for HTML5 and CSS3 to Illustrator. This is understandable considering HTML5 and CSS3 standards themselves no yet finalized.

But the question is why wasn’t this functionality shipped with Illustrator CS5 from the start? Adobe responded to this inquiry:

“During the planning and development of Illustrator CS5, future browser support for the evolving HTML5 and CSS3 specifications was uncertain, and we did not foresee any compatibility issues in the CS5 time frame. While the official specifications are still not yet complete, they are now supported to varying degrees by a number of different desktop browsers,” Adobe explains in an accompanying FAQ. “Given the recent surge of interest around HTML5, a preview of Illustrator compatibility with HTML5, CSS3 SVG is being provided so that you can begin exploring their potential as quickly as possible,” it says.

Adobe recently made an update for design and development tool Dreamweaver, showing the loyalty to embrace the HTML5 as a standard.

This update is free of charge both for trial and full versions of Illustrator.

Condé Nast Prepares Its Top Magazines For The Apple iPad

Written on March 01, 2010 by AllWeLike

Comments Off

Top magazine publishing company Condé Nast plans to create iPad versions of its leading magazines such as Wired, GQ, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and Glamour and is expected to announce it in an internal memorandum on Monday.

By April, GQ will have its debut issue for the iPad. An iPhone application is already out on the market and it already sold more than 15,000 copies of the January issue and just about 7,000 of the December Issue. Vanity Fair and Wired are set to launch theirs on June while The New Yorker and Glamour will have their issues sometime this summer.

Mr. Wallace said that once the company had figured out what worked and what did not on the iPad, it would think about digitizing other magazines. “If we are happy with the results that we get, we’ll be ready to go in the fall,” he said.

Their market was one of the key points in choosing which magazine to launch. “They are representative of the company, right? GQ is men. Glamour is women. Vanity Fair is a dual audience. The New Yorker is unique with its periodicity, and therefore it’s also more news- or text-heavy, and it’s a slightly older audience,” said Thomas J. Wallace, editorial director of Condé Nast.
