Adobe releases Edge software to design multimedia with HTML5, not Flash

The Washington Post
Adobe released a new software tool today for creating animations and designing interactive media with HTML5. The program, called Edge, is free for now as the company refines it. A tool like this can help developers create HTML5 elements — such as display ads, Web apps or mobile apps — that will run in any browser on any device, just like a normal Web page. It poses an alternative to Adobe’s proprietary Flash application, which iPhones and iPads do not support. But the Post reports that this isn’t a sign that Adobe is abandoning Flash. “Flash remains very relevant” in creating video and data-driven applications, said Devin Fernandez, an Adobe product manager.

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad 2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://to.ly/aRG4

    Is Adobe giving up or playing it smart?
