Adobe is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Photoshop, the most famous and most used photo editing software ever. Photoshop has had a long history of updates. In fact, you might not recognize the first version of the software. The origins of Photoshop date back to when Tom Knoll wanted to showcase grayscale images on his monochrome display, which was on his Macintosh Plus. It was then suggested that he should turn this program, which he called "Display," into a full image-editing program.
Adobe Systems' Flash software had a good long run as the technology of choice for bringing interactive splash to the Web, but Google is helping to give it the heave-ho by moving YouTube to Web-standard video instead. "We're now defaulting to the HTML5 player on the Web," said YouTube engineering manager Richard Leider in a blog post Tuesday. It took four years for Google to make the HTML5 change, which is a major victory for Web standards fans who've strived to eject proprietary plug-ins from the Web.
In the computing industry's last chapter, Sun Microsystems had a motto: "The network is the computer." The phrase was open-ended enough to mean just about anything involving its main business, which was selling servers, but it wasn't enough to keep Sun from faltering and being swallowed up by Oracle. Adobe Systems' flagship software, which has become the industry standard for photo editing, is a fine example of old-era software dating back to the time when Microsoft ruled the roost.
In an era of social-media marketing, school fundraisers, and Kickstarter campaigns, more and more people need to persuade others to do something. Not everybody has the budget or skills for a TED talk, though, which is why Adobe is launching a new iPad app called Voice. The free app walks people through a handful of templates, offering a narrative structure like "hero's journey" or "promote an idea." People then add clip art, music, and graphics to build a pitch.
Adobe is recommending that users update their Flash Players immediately - especially those who frequent Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. The company released an emergency security bulletin on Tuesday that addresses vulnerabilities in Flash, which could be exploited by hackers.
