Google tablet runs Flash & Chrome browser tips Schmidt

We don't know who it is that's inviting Google CEO Eric Schmidt to parties, topping up his glass frequently, and then encouraging him to talk about upcoming Android-based hardware from the company, but we hope they carry on.  After the report yesterday that suggested Schmidt had told friends that Google were developing an own-brand tablet, further details have emerged from others apparently attending the same party; Schmidt supposedly confirmed that the device will run Adobe Flash content and games.

Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch Responds to Apple’s Latest iPhone SDK

Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch Responds to Apple’s Latest iPhone SDK

By now you've heard about the ongoing war between Adobe and Apple. You've probably heard about it even if you live under a rock. It's everywhere, and as we expected, it didn't die down after the launch of the iPad. In fact, it seems to be getting worse after the announcement of iPhone OS 4.0. Especially when folks started navigating through the fine print and legal documentation, and we started to learn that Steve Jobs and company had begun a far stricter implementation of the rules for their SDK. More importantly, they tied the noose around Adobe's figurative neck a bit tighter.

iPhone OS 4.0 SDK limits dev compiler choice; Adobe Flash CS5 scuppered before launch

iPhone OS 4.0 SDK limits dev compiler choice; Adobe Flash CS5 scuppered before launch

Steve Jobs made plenty of noise yesterday about the 1,500+ new APIs for iPhone OS developers to play with in OS 4.0, but its taken some SDK sifting to turn up some of the less impressive changes.  A section of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement has been amended to not only deny access to private APIs but also prescribe which languages can be used to create apps: C, C++ and Objective-C.  The change means that developers looking to use the Adobe Flash to iPhone compiler in the upcoming Flash Professional CS5 release will have to think again, together with those already using MonoTouch and Appcelerator.

HTML5 and Flash can work together insists Adobe evangelist [Video]

Flash and HTML5 are hot topics in the online world right now.  We've heard plenty about how more smartphones will get Flash, how performance might not be what users expect and how mainstream sites are looking to alternatives, and of course there's Apple's ongoing reluctance to add Flash functionality to their mobile devices.  Meanwhile HTML5 is getting plenty of positive press, and most recently Microsoft have announced full support for the technology in IE9.  Is there room for both to live together in harmony, however?  "Adobe platform evangelist" Serge Jespers reckons so, and he's thrown together the code to demonstrate it.

There's another tablet set to launch here soon on the market, but that doesn't mean you should take your eyes off the competition just yet. With videos like this one after the break, we're pleasantly surprised by what HP, Microsoft, and Adobe have worked together to create. Now, if the HP Slate can function as well as these videos showcase, our anticipation for this gadget will increase ten-fold. Plus, we love crossword puzzles.

Anti-Flash movement building as sites court mobile users?

Anti-Flash movement building as sites court mobile users?

The tide looks like it may be turning on Flash.  With Apple's continued resistance to adding support for the Adobe system to their smartphone, PMP and upcoming tablet line-up, website developers seem to be scaling back their use of the technology so as to maintain accessibility across as many devices as possible.  Virgin America are the latest big-name company to bypass Flash and choose basic HTML for their new site, telling The Register that the older standard was "good enough" for their requirements.

Adobe’s New Flash Lite to Support More Phones

Today at Mobile World Congress, Adobe revealed its new Flash Lite - version 3.1. The Advanced Flash Lite features functionality of Adobe Flash 10 and supports more phones than its previous version. Lists of supported devices can be found on Adobe Labs page.

"Flash Lite 3.1 includes the same features as Flash Lite 3.0, such as support for Flash Player compatible video, with some additional enhancements including improved security model for SWF file access. The solution delivers a standalone player for applications, without affecting the Flash Lite browser plug-in or pre-installed standalone player, if present."

Palm has also announced that webOS will be able to run Flash Lite on its Pre phone. Flash Lite 3.1 is currently available on Adobe’s site as public beta for Windows Mobile and Nokia S60 Symbian OS. Now if only Apple would make it easier for Adobe to put Flash on the iPhone, life would be much better for iPhone users.
