Adobe Kills Flash For Android And Other Mobile Devices

Today is the day Adobe finally killed Flash development for mobile devices. Flash is used to play your videos, games, and other popular things on the web. Every since the iPhone came out, one of the problems was that it didn't support Flash. This was a big deal since a lot of websites were build with Flash and were unable to be viewed within Safari. Apple was mainly trying to push everyone to start using HTML5 and other formats since they were safer. So finally Adobe has moved on to other things.

ZDNet had this to say:
"Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations. Some of our source code licensees may opt to continue working on and releasing their own implementations. We will continue to support the current Android and PlayBook configurations with critical bug fixes and security updates."

Flash will still be updated with bug fixes and security updates for time to time, however that is the only attention it is going to get. So for all of those other devices out there Advertised with being able to support Flash, that's the last we'll see of you.

iTunes Match Launched!


Click here to download iTunes 10.5.1 from Apple.
Or open iTunes and click on "Check for Updates".

NOTE: iTunes Match is currently only available in the United States.

Apple just rolled out iTunes 10.5.1 which includes iTunes Match, Apple's cloud music locker that was supposed to come out weeks ago. iTunes Match will cost $24.99 per year, and will allow you to access your entire music library from Apple's iCloud servers.

iTunes Match matches your songs to iTunes' 20 million song library. For songs iTunes doesn't have, you can upload them to iCloud servers for playback from other devices.

While iCloud doesn't technically "stream" music to you, it lets you download your music to any device on demand. You can "unpin" music you've downloaded at any time if you want to free up space. It all works within the iTunes client for Mac, and within the iTunes Store app for iPhone.

Here's the press release from Apple:

With iTunes Match, even songs you’ve imported from CDs can be stored in iCloud. And you can play them on any iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC — whenever you want and wherever you are, without syncing. iTunes Match is just $24.99 a year.

Here’s how it works: iTunes determines which songs in your collection are available in the iTunes Store. Any music with a match is automatically added to iCloud for you to listen to anytime, on any device. Since there are more than 20 million songs in the iTunes Store, chances are, your music is already in iCloud. And for the few songs that aren’t, iTunes has to upload only what it can’t match. Which is much faster than starting from scratch. Once your music is in iCloud, you can stream and store it to any of your devices. Even better, all the music iTunes matches plays back from iCloud at 256-Kbps AAC DRM-free quality — even if your original copy was of lower quality.

Supposed iPad 3 Home Button Pictures Emerge in China

9to5 Mac is featuring a picture today showing what is said to be two different iPad 3 home buttons, one in black and one in white. Both are shown next to two iPad 2 home buttons in the same colour for comparison purposes. If the truth be told, you?d be hard pushed to actually spot the difference! It is, apparently, smaller inside, which could mean that Apple wants to use up every available bit of space inside the next iPad, but for what, we don?t know yet! As 9to5 Mac notes, however, the existence of the buttons, if they are indeed genuine, points to the iPad 3 being released in both black and white versions, as with the iPad 2. Also, the fact that actual physical home screen buttons are now in existence and being photographed would give further credence to therecent rumour that the iPad 3 will be released as early as February, and that it may well already be in production. And of course, the pictures also dispel the rumour that the next iPad will not even have a home button!

Apple adding new applications in order to expand iCloud

If you happen to be an experienced software engineer, and in need of a job, maybe you should start contemplating the possibility of a career path at Apple. Very recently, the company created a job posting calling for all interested software engineers to join the iWork team. The applicant, will be integrated in the iWork team on the front and/or back end of scalable web applications. The jobs were listed just a day after Apple announced the beta service, which incorporates Calendar, Mail and Contacts via an web app. These feats were first intended for Apple?s MobileMe Service, which has been dropped. iCloud is also rumored to have a working section of iWork apps, but nothing has been posed yet. offers space for hosting of documents coming from iWork applications, but this will soon be integrated into iCloud. iWork also allows users to view and share documents, but it won?t let them add any changes (editing). The jobs posted, advertised free spots for the iWork team, but it is not clear yet whether this applies to the existing iWork domain and web service or if it applies to the iCloud part of the iWork. But given the fact that the jobs were announced right after the news came out, it is likely the engineering jobs will go to the iCloud team instead.

Apple may be going into the Google Docs and Microsoft Office 265 direction, if it will keep up the plans of expanding iWork beyond the current, as the job posting asks for experience in ?developing web application frameworks, building and maintain large-scale distributed systems and building web application user interfaces.? Are you brushing your CV yet?
