It’s impressive that ever horrible weather like this is unable to deter

South Africans

Building iPad Applications with Flash (Adobe Flash Platform Blog)

Building iPad Applications with Flash

Today Apple announced the Apple iPad and like many of you, we at Adobe are looking forward to getting our hands on one of these devices. This is an exciting time to be a software designer with an explosion of new devices and we look forward to helping Flash developers and designers bring innovative applications to these devices using our tools and frameworks.

We announced the Packager for iPhone at MAX 2009 which will allow Flash developers to create native iPhone applications and will be available in the upcoming version of Flash Pro CS5. This technology enables developers to create applications for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad (though applications will not initially take direct advantage of iPad’s new screen resolution). It is our intent to make it possible for Flash developers to build applications that can take advantage of the increased screen size and resolution of the iPad.

Wow, This is a MASSIVE announcement. I know hundreds of Flash developers, but only a few iPhone Developers personally.

Lets hope the apps aren’t as sluggish as some flash games.

I found an interesting webpage which can map the average rent based on a post-code you provide

Great for checking whether the rent being asked by your landlord is fair…

Interresting Youtube video: Personal Democracy

January 19, 2010 Leave a comment
The Machine is (Changing) Us: YouTube and the Politics of AuthenticityWow, ,  just wathed this somewhat educational YouTube video that
really shows how Youtube and social media is actually changing the
whole way we connect and reflect on the world, our surroundings and
what we call community.

The most interesting part is where it shows How and why the medium
allows people to be different and even more open than what they would
normally be. Similar to a confession booth ( wouldn’t know
personally). Maybe that is why Reality TV love the video diary format
so much.

It was definitely worth watching, since I started watching the video
at 04:30am and didn’t fall asleep.

Check out this video on YouTube:

P.S: Sent from my iPhone (a beautiful beast of technology) –
I haven’t worked on my MacBook the whole night but did everything That
i use to do with my old windows laptop two years ago, in addition to
the augmented reality apps, which showed me where the nearest coffee
shop is ( and that is is currently closed…)

Still need a Mac to get real work done though.

London mime festival started tonight

January 14, 2010 Leave a comment
Guess what.
The London mime festival started tonight and… It was spectacular.

Although mime probably dies out 20 years ago, the art seems to have
evolved into a visual and physical communication medium which is
definitely interresting to watch.
