Apple’s Steve Jobs dead at 56

Filed under: Flash News — Tags: , , , — Li YongFei @ 9:46 pm

Apple Inc co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, counted among the greatest American CEOs of his generation, died on Wednesday at the age of 56.

Jobs' death was announced by Apple in a statement late on Wednesday. The homepage featured a black-and-white picture of him with the words "Steve Jobs, 1955-2011."

Apple began selling the iPhone in June 2007. Mr. Jobs’s goal was to sell 10 million of the handsets in 2008, equivalent to 1 percent of the global cellphone market. The company sold 11.6 million.

Although smartphones were already commonplace, the iPhone dispensed with a stylus and pioneered a touch-screen interface that quickly set the standard for the mobile computing market. Rolled out with much anticipation and fanfare, iPhone rocketed to popularity; by end of 2010 the company had sold almost 90 million units.

Filed under: Flash News, Flash iPad, Flash iPhone 5 — Tags: , , , , — Li YongFei @ 11:49 am

Adobe has developed a multimedia viewer tool that plays Flash video on Apple products such as the iPhone or iPad. Apple has yet to lift it's restriction on the media platform, but Adobe has found a way around it all with the introduction of Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 and Flash Access 3.0.

"the new tool is a 'cheat' that allows Flash video to play freely on Apple's devices – without Apple signing it off." The latest announcement only covers the ability for iOS devices to play Flash-based video content streamed through Adobe Flash Media Server, which is not the same as support for all of the features of the Flash Player, such as full interactivity, applications and games.

Here’s some of the official announcement:

With Flash Media Server 4.5, media publishers can extend their already broad mobile reach via Flash-enabled devices, with the new ability to deliver video content to Apple’s iPad and iPhone devices, enabling them to reach the widest audience possible. Adobe Flash Access 3.0, a robust content protection and monetization solution, will enable content owners to deliver on-demand content with massive scale and strict studio-level security across a broad range of devices, following the upcoming release of Flash Player 11 and Adobe AIR 3.

New features of Flash Media Server 4.5:

  • Delivery to iPad and iPhone enables businesses to use the same media and live streams to deliver full adaptive bit-rate experiences to platforms supporting Flash, as well as Apple devices, including iPad and iPhone.
  • Integrated Content Protection simplifies deployment and reduces infrastructure cost, enabling seamless streaming for advertising-funded online video.
  • On-demand Stream Packaging eliminates the need to prepare and protect assets ahead of time, reducing complexity and storage costs and simplifying publishing for businesses so they can use one set of source video to reach multiple downstream devices.

Skyfire Brings Flash Video to iPhone

Filed under: Flash Lite iPhone — Tags: , , — Li YongFei @ 1:40 am

How many iPhone users want to play Flash video on their mobile phones? The Skyfire browser, when a user navigates to a Web site with a Flash video, a "SkyBar" will display the video on the bottom menu.  When tapped for playback, Skyfire converts the Flash video to HTML5. However, until Skyfire's server capacity and bandwidth is expanded, it's now on the App store for $2.99. The Skyfire said "Within 5 hours, Skyfire for iPhone became the top grossing app, the third highest paid app overall and the top application in the Utilities category. Wow!"

The iPhone edition of the browser scans Web pages for Flash-based video. It'll pop up a thumbnail video icon, which means that it can play a version of the video converted into the iPhone's H.264 format. Click on the icon, and Skyfire will buffer and play the video.
