My money is on Adobe simply because of those two invisible weapons, PDF and Flash

16 07 2007

 

 

Robert X. Cringely write very good article on FLASH and PDF today’s stand.

Some of the very good statements he has write.

  • Being the owner of two invisible technologies [PDF and Flash] makes Adobe more powerful than most of us can even imagine.
  • Adobe absolutely dominates nearly every market for graphical software and is a strong competitor in video, too.
  • Adobe is moving into developer tools in a big way to support its grab for mindshare in the interactive/rich web application space where much of the excitement lately seems to be.
  • My money is on Adobe simply because of those two invisible weapons, PDF and Flash.
  • But invisibility offers no advantage to those who can’t follow through. That’s not Adobe, by which I mean that’s not Flash, which has grown to be so much more than it was ever intended to be.
  • By itself, Flash has had an amazing evolution.
  • Java applets were fantastic with major shortcomings (huge Java runtime, poor performance, clunky and ugly interface, etc). Flash fixed all or most of those.
  • Expect Flash in everything and perhaps even Flash in a chip. Deploying software in hardware is the ultimate DRM.
  • And Flash does cross-platform so much better than Java ever did.
  • Flash potentially solves all those problems AND creates new opportunities.

Best uses of Flash from SEO Prospective

11 07 2007

From years back SEO doesn’t recognize use of flash content in site. May be they are right because googlebot can’t ready each and every visual and text content of the .swf format. And flash is really not medium for SEO, it’s completely visual medium. But still we can use .swf content in SEO friendly web site by taking care of search engine prospective.

 

Tip for SEO friendly flash content creation

  1. Use dynamic text rather then static text and graphics
  2. Use “deep linking” new feature of flex 3.0

  4. Place flash content wherever it require in your html page [i.e youTube, Google Earth and Google finance]

Flex 3: Built in data grid animation effects

5 07 2007

There is no scope of animation in Datagrid & List components, in Flex 2.0. As such, we have to run code loop and do manual animations on canvas or that kind of container to achieve the animation effects. However, Flex 3.0 team must have realised this requirement and they packed this feature in the new SDK. Now, we can assign special effects on datagrid and list base components.
