Going With The Flow

Today, I left the world of the command line behind and tackled the latest release from Adobe - its Flash Builder 4.5, and it's a revelation.

This blog has predicted the demise of Flash after both Apple and Microsoft derided it, with the yet unformed HTML5 as the new kid on the block. But we may have been premature.

4.5 has the ability to export and target specific mobile and tablet platforms and maintains its lovely WYSIWYG interface.

It's good to see that Adobe have avoided the dogmatic approach that has bedevilled so many tech companies and has gone with the flow. And I just paid for an upgrade. Going with the flow is an important lesson in a technology world that changes so quickly.
