  • Blog Post: Did Microsoft copy the Adobe AIR Poster?

    I often see a lot of the Adobe communities rant and rave ignorance about how Microsoft follows' Adobe’s every move, like some how they’ve got it all figured out. vs The reality is that majority of the time, Microsoft was the first to make the move, sadly though, folks just can’t be bothered doing their...
  • Blog Post: Be a student of software, don't be a student of brands.

    You can buy into what makes a brand a brand. You can choose to believe in the halo or the devil appeal to a brand, but ultimately you never truly appreciate software this way. Brands are a fickle thing, some love them, some hate them, both are filled with emotion. Software however is catalyst for emotion...
  • Blog Post: Stupid eh? Stupid like a fox..

    The title - " 7 reasons not to consider using Adobe Flex ". I saw this and went "ok, I'll bite, what are they". I began to read them, and figured ok, I can see the authors perspective, if these 7 items are crucial to him then I won't judge and there are some points I've heard before...
  • Blog Post: RE: Adobe AIR + .NET Command Proxy Security concerns.

  • Blog Post: Why won't Silverlight work for Adobe Staffer Mike Downey?

    I'll cut to the chase on this one. Seem's Mike Downey at Adobe suffers from Silverlight related issues whenever there is what I'd call an "Adobe Compete" situation (positive story around Silverlight or Flash). I accept the notion that maybe I'm a bit paranoid, I don't know but you judge for...
  • Blog Post: Ahh to be a Startup in this crazy Web 2.0+ world..

    I've been in a few startups, I owe my house to one successful streak and so when I spend time with folks in today's "Startup" way of life I can't but help get itchy feet at times. I have no real intentions of leaving Microsoft any time soon, and yet the more I see some of the roadmap's ahead...
  • Blog Post: Mozilla, Adobe and Silverlight. Shall we dance?

    No doubt you've seen the Prism announcement by Mozilla. Quite an interesting move in this chess game we call "The Software Industry". Personally, I'm not sure what the end game for Mozilla is anymore and I'm sure If I look hard enough I'll find that answer. Mike Chambers at Adobe put up a post...
  • Blog Post: At times I wonder...

    They say a picture speaks a thousands words. In this case, I find it tongue in cheek that Adobe's CEO Bruce Chizen got up on stage, labeled Microsoft as a "monopoly" in one breath, then talked about how great the Adobe products in another whilst doing so on Windows Vista. I also wonder at how...
