FINALLY! Adobe is stopping development on mobile flash and switching to HTML5 development. Hopefully, more videos on the iPhone/iPad and longer batteries for everyone.

Adobe is stopping development of its Flash Player for mobile browsers, according to an exclusive report from ZDNet. The company will continue to support existing Android and BlackBerry Playbook configurations of the player, but future development will be focused on developing HTML5 and apps.

Developers were apparently briefed by Adobe about the situation, which will be expanded upon later today on Adobe’s official site:

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.

For $400 HPs TopShot Printer Is All That and a 3D Scanner

3 Nov

A great way to spruce up your Etsy product page is with 3D models of the items. But, problem is the process of generating these models can be prohibitively time- and money- intensive. HP’s new TopShot printer aims to change that.

In addition to pulling normal multifunction printer duties like copying and faxing, the HP TopShot LaserJet Pro can also scan small, 3D objects. It employs a camera embedded at the end of an folding arm that takes six shots—three with flash and three in ambient light—then combines them into a seamless high-resolution picture. Included editing software automatically removes the background leaving just the product and integrated Internet connectivity allows for immediate upload to the web without a computer intermediary.

The TopShot retails for $400 with both its functionality and price aimed towards smaller businesses that may not be able to afford a traditional product shoot setup. This could definitely be a boon for Etsy artists and eBay sellers, but does the inclusion of 3D models really influence one’s purchase decisions, at least enough to warrant an investment of four Franklins?

Steve Jobs MAY have left a Special Four Year Plan for Apple #teechy

Did Steve Jobs Leave a Special Four Year Plan for Apple?.

Also, in Jan 2011, it was reported that Apple was spending a ton of money on flash contracts for a very special and unique product coming out. http://gizmodo.com/5737102/what-is-apple-secretly-spending-a-lot-of-money-on

Apple is a perfect example of this: they made contracts well in advance to secure a steady supply of low price flash memory and touch screens over the next several years. They did it for the MacBook Air, the iPhone, the iPod touch and the iPad. That’s why their prices are lower than the rest of the industry and their margins higher.
