Video & PDF for my LFPUG Android talk

The talk went pretty well over all… didn’t hear any snoring anyway!

Didn’t cover half as much as I’d wanted to, what were supposed to be quick overviews of Flash and Air ended up taking far too long and I didn’t get to cover much of Andengine or any of the Market stuff I was planning on. Turns out you can’t fit as much talking into an hour as you think!

When I get time I’ll do a video of the Andegine demo I was planning and pop it up here instead.

Video & PDF available on the LFPUG site here.

Microdobe? Adobosoft?

Microsoft & Adobe in merger talks?

As one commenter on the NYTimes site puts it…

“Get ready for Microsoft Photoshop Office Home Premium Starter Edition for Enterprises!”

Good thing? Bad thing? Complete nonsense? What’s your thoughts?

Apple officially back down on dev tools?

Wow, seems Apple may have made quite an about face, they’ve just released this…

Statement by Apple on App Store Review Guidelines

The important bit…

We have listened to our developers and taken much of their feedback to heart. Based on their input, today we are making some important changes to our iOS Developer Program license in sections 3.3.1, 3.3.2 and 3.3.9 to relax some restrictions we put in place earlier this year.

In particular, we are relaxing all restrictions on the development tools used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code. This should give developers the flexibility they want, while preserving the security we need.

In addition, for the first time we are publishing the App Store Review Guidelines to help developers understand how we review submitted apps. We hope it will make us more transparent and help our developers create even more successful apps for the App Store.

So, wonder where that leaves Flash and the iPhone exporter?
