Re: Steve Jobs’ “Thoughts on Flash”

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Steve Jobs recently posted the following article on Apple’s website, presumably to speak to the masses of people asking why the company is refusing to entertain support for Adobe’s Flash plug-in on their mobile devices. You can read the article here:, and then feel free to come back and read my thoughts…on his thoughts.


HTC Droid Incredible

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

In a couple days, I’ll return home to LA from a 4 day Seattle work-week and waiting for me at home will be a brand new HTC Droid Incredible. There are two main reasons why I finally decided to give up my featureless, but reliable Blackberry for this particular smartphone:


Removing a page of your site from Google’s cache

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

So if you’ve been following this blog at all, you’ll know that I have spent the last few weeks implementing the new Asual S.E.O. method with SWFAddress 2.4 on my portfolio site.

So as I’ve been watching the progress of the iPhone, iPad, and all the new Android phones that are coming out, I feel somewhat obligated to share my opinion on the “mobile war” that has quickly grown from a skirmish to a full-blown battle. Let me preface this by saying that I’ve been watching this area of the tech market because I am a loyal Verizon customer, and I have been waiting for the iPhone to come out with a CDMA model for the Verizon network. That being said, several things have caught my attention and have not only piqued my interest about Google’s new Nexus One handset, but they have turned me into a full-on boycott-er of all Apple’s mobile devices, despite having been an avid Mac user for years.


S.E.O. and Flash Sites

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

For quite some time now, the Achilles heel of most (if not all) Flash developers has been Search Engine Optimization (or S.E.O.). Somewhat recently, however, Asual has published a new example of how to combine PHP with their latest SWFAddress release to create a relatively graceful solution.
