About Adobe Flash Player 8.5

Just noticed, the new Flash player 8.5 beta that gets installed with Flex Builder 2 Beta 2 has the "About Macromedia Flash player x" replaced with "Adobe Flash player 8.5" string in the context menu.

I still remember seeing the "About Macromedia Flash player 5..." link in the Windows XP tour, way back in 2000. Thats how I first came to know about flash (that was pretty late, I know) Forget working for Macromedia Flash team, little did I know I would make a living with Flash then :p

The menu looks little thinner now. (with "Macromedia" being replaced by the smaller string "adobe")

The settings dialog title still reads "Macromedia Flash player settings" though!

Following the paths of Samsung, Nokia etc. LG has signed an agreement with Adobe for licensing Flash Lite and Flash Player SDK.

LG is one of the major mobile handsets as far as the Indian CDMA market is concerned. Hopefully we will get to see Flash enabled LG mobile phones soon.

Microsoft Virtual Earth - MS's answer to Google Earth

Microsoft replies to Google Earth with its new feature they call 'interactive Street-side browsing' in the preview release of Virtual Earth. And I should say, they did that in Style!

Check out their weblog here.It was announced on Channel9 in this article.

Currently they have street images of Seattle and SF. Lucky that I had been to SF, I could 'drive' around on the streets that I know!!

Awesome stuff!
