Greenbox - from the godfathers of Flash

Greenbox™ enables households to save money on their energy bills and reduce their carbon footprint.
Greenbox is the domestic energy saving utility product from SoftwareAsArt Inc, the company that Jon Gay, Robert Tatsumi, Gary Grossman, and Pete Santangeli (- in short, the founders of Adobe Flash & Actionscript) founded a while ago.

They are 'currently in the process of conducting in-home trials' and the product is expected end of 2008/ early 2009.

Oh, and Jonathan Gay is listed as one of the 25 people who ditched InfoTech to CleanTech. Congrats Jon!

CNN Money knows how Apple is gonna end the standoff with Adobe-By putting Flash memory on iphone!

A couple of weeks ago, John Dowdell, Peter Elst, Mrinal Wadhwa, and Brajeshwar Oinam posted about how 'geek' bloggers are writing silly posts about Silverlight vs AIR.

Today, someone passed me a link to this post on CNN Money, which beats every other blogger hands down:

" Just how will Apple meet expectations? Using the patent application as a guide, Apple appears to be making room on the iPhone for flash memory, which means an end to Apple's standoff with Adobe (ADBE) that's kept iPhones from easily viewing a plethora of Internet videos."

Now this dude thinks that Flash memory and Adobe's Flash media player are the same. Beat that people!

The entire post is a joke. Check it out!

Apple store browser - Be the first to know ;)

I know a lot of you out there are constantly refreshing ur browser windows pointing at, in an attempt to see when the new set of pages go up with the new products.

At the time of writing this post, the store displays a note saying that the store is being updated. So go on apple fans, start hitting the page, and be the first to see the new page!

So I just put up this mini apple store browser, which keeps doing the refresh page, for you. And thought I'd as well pass it out to others who want to do the same :P

If you already have the AIR runtime installed, just download the appleStoreBrowser.air file and install.
If you don't have AIR runtime installed, get it here

Go, go!
