NVIDIA CEO: Tegra 2 will sweep tablets & smartphones; Moorestown “an elephant”

NVIDIA CEO: Tegra 2 will sweep tablets & smartphones; Moorestown “an elephant”

We've made no bones of our love of NVIDIA's second-gen Tegra chipset, and how excited we are about seeing it in upcoming tablets like the Notion Ink Adam, and unsurprisingly NVIDIA's CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, is just as keen on the SoC.  He's been talking up the Tegra's potential (again) against Qualcomm's Snapdragon - "we use the right processors to do the right job" - as well as saving some particularly biting criticism for Intel's Z6xx Moorestown chips - "you could give an elephant a diet but it's still an elephant" - and even teasing a little about the possibility of a webOS tablet.

Adobe HTML5 Pack for Dreamweaver CS5 released: accept Flash isn’t the only way forward

Adobe might be heaping the pressure onto Apple when it comes to Flash support on the iPad and iPhone, but they're also looking to embrace HTML5 development.  At Google I/O 2010 today, the company took to the stage to announce the HTML5 Pack for Dreamweaver CS5, an extension that allows for straightforward handling of HTML5 and CSS3 capabilities, as well as designing single pages that will be usable across multiple screen sizes, whether PC, smartphone or tablet.

Hulu Cites Multiple Reasons for Turning Down HTML5 at This Point

Hulu Cites Multiple Reasons for Turning Down HTML5 at This Point

Everything is eventual, and even through this discouraging blog post from Hulu on the state of HTML5 in relation to the video streaming service, there's a light at the end of the tunnel that we can all look forward to. (If you dislike Flash, and are hoping for HTML5 adoption, that is.) Today Hulu updated their video player today, and while some may have assumed it would ultimately be HTML5 ready, that's not the case. And it might not be for a little while longer.

Adobe: Apple “could undermine” the web

Adobe: Apple “could undermine” the web

Apple CEO Steve Jobs may not have much good to say about Flash, but Adobe are taking the high ground; well, assuming the high ground is an ad campaign across various high-profile sites that professes their love not only for Flash, Apple and HTML5, but for "Freedom Of Choice".  That campaign - which you can see, delivered in Flash naturally, on Adobe's homepage - is supported by an open letter from founders Chuck Geschke and John Warnock in which they warn that Apple may have "taken a step that could undermine this next chapter of the web."

Simulated Moorestown browser test pits Intel against iPad [Video]

Simulated Moorestown browser test pits Intel against iPad [Video]

In among Intel's hyperbole for the Atom Z6xx launch earlier this week were some impressive stats for internet browsing performance, contrasting what users of Moorestown-based MIDs, tablets and smartbooks could expect in comparison with rival devices.  Steve Paine over at UMPC Portal decided he couldn't wait for the first Z6xx demo units, and so set up some browser tests of his own; he locked a Menlow-based Viliv X70 MID to 800MHz and pitted it against the iPad for some real-world surfing.

Scribd “scrapping 3 years of Flash development” for HTML5

Scribd “scrapping 3 years of Flash development” for HTML5

It's looking more and more likely that Flash's fate will be decided not by technical merit but by market dominance, and with the iPad dominating tablet sales this year it seems companies are content to abandon Adobe's technology in favor of HTML5 simply to get a foot in the touchscreen door.  Online document sharing site Scribd are the latest to jump ship, with CTO Jared Friedman bluntly stating "we are scrapping three years of Flash development and betting the company on HTML5."

Flash delay and tablet hysteria to blame for smartbook shortage reckons ARM

Flash delay and tablet hysteria to blame for smartbook shortage reckons ARM

Lenovo's Skylight smartbook launch delay was rumored to be so that the company could rework the software and make it more competitive against the iPad; according to ARM, that reworking could predominantly be happening in Adobe's labs.  The company's VP of marketing, Ian Drew, told ZDNet that smartbooks had "stalled" because of Adobe's delay in bringing Flash Player 10 and AIR support to ARM chipsets; "Our target is mostly internet machines — it becomes sort of a requirement that they run the internet" he highlighted, before going on to suggest that would-be smartbook manufacturers had been "confused" by the flurry in tablet form-factor devices.

Adobe demo Android Tegra tablet running Flash & AIR “flawlessly” [Video]

Adobe demo Android Tegra tablet running Flash & AIR “flawlessly” [Video]

Adobe have been demonstrating the latest Flash and AIR builds running on an Android-based touchscreen tablet, and it's enough to drive Zedomax into paroxysms of delight.  From having a good look at the prototype, it looks like a slightly updated version of the NVIDIA tablet hardware we played with at MWC 2010 back in February, with the addition of a battery rather than a wired power supply, and according to Zedomax it was managing Adobe playback "flawlessly".
