Adobe Photoshop App Update Absent in iPad App Store

Adobe Photoshop App Update Absent in iPad App Store

I was updating some apps on my iPhone through the App Store today, and I noticed that most of my apps were being iPad update readied.  From large names to small apps, they were updated except for one very conspicuous name – Adobe. It’s no secret that Adobe Flash and iPad do not mix.  It’s also no secret that Steve Jobs has said that HTML5 and open standards are the stronger of the languages, going so … Read entire article »

iPad’s Browser Makes Developers Work Harder

Developers are gearing up for the next round of browsers that they have to develop web applications for.  A world without browser plug-ins is the world that Apple pictures, as their iPad browser doesn’t support even Flash, the most common plug-in on the web. An early decision from Apple was that the iPad would only render videos and other multimedia found commonly on the internet in HTML5.  While this is typical for Apple to control their environment, never before have they been able to control the user’s browsing experience to this level before the iPad.

iPad Sales Zoom in 2011 if Apple Addresses iPad Flash

The iPad went on retail sale today at the Apple Store and BestBuy in limited supply, and pre-order customers could come to pick up their iPad tablets today…and the sales numbers reflect just that.  But we’re just at the tip of the iceburg. iSuppli, an electronics research group, predicts that the iPad will sell well over 7 million units and will almost double in 2011.   iSuppli doesn’t see the product so much as a tablet pc as it does a hybrid of that and a pure internet device.  In essence, once again, Apple has created a market for a device that really didn’t exist or have traction before. In the article, it is noted that Adobe Flash (or lack thereof) may be a barrier that could open up a door to a … Read entire article »
