On Mobile Flash, Apple Stands Alone

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Flash for Mobile: Not a CPU Hog, Says AdobeAdobe claims they will. The company says this new version of the Flash Player has been completely redesigned for mobile use, making “efficient use of CPU and battery performance,” a direct shot against one of Jobs’ complaints that Flash was, in layman’s terms, a CPU hog that too quickly drained a phone’s battery.To showcase what mobile users have been missing out on, Adobe has also launched a mini-site at m.flash.com, which features dozens of sites optimized for Flash, including those from Warner, Sony Pictures, Nickelodeon, PBS Kids, TBS, Sundance, USA Today, BBC, Macy’s, Prada, FAO Schwartz, MLB, NBA, NHL, Sky Sports, Formula 1, FIFA World Cup and others. Then, in what feels almost like press release overkill, the company sent out details of the announcement to news outlets such as this one with no less than 32 attributable quotes from a range of analysts, content partners and technology and device partners. There are no small names on this lineup, which includes the likes of HTC, Google, RIM, ARM, Samsung, Dell, Intel, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Brightcove, HBO, Viacom, Turner, MSNBC, CNET and several others. The message, or at least the one Adobe wants you to hear, is that many if not most of today’s biggest names support Flash. Flash to Impact Sales?And yet…Despite not running Flash technology when it was well known that Flash support was arriving soon for Android and others, Apple’s mobile device lineup has been selling well. And that’s putting it mildly. According to recent data from the Nielsen Company, the iPhone retains a 28% smartphone market share in the U.S. to Android’s 9%, and is still growing.And recently, a Piper Jaffray analyst upped his estimate for iPhone 4 sales by 1 million units, pegging the Cupertino-based company to now sell 9.5 million units before the quarter’s end on June 30th. The message here, in the numbers at least, is that a phone’s ability to support Flash may or may not really matter when it comes to OS choice. Picking a smartphone is a more complex decision, one based on carrier contracts, design, available applications, ease of use and thousands of other user requirements. Will “does it run Flash?” ever make it on the list that exists in the consumer’s mind? And even if it does, will it matter in the end? Will Flash sell phones? Now that Flash has arrived for Android and soon elsewhere, we’ll finally be able to answer that question. And the answer will impact Adobe’s mobile strategy for years to come. Today is truly a make-it-or-break-it moment for the company. They’ve put up. Time to see if Flash will deliver. Adobe Systems announced today that its Flash Player 10.1 software for mobile devices is now being released to its platform partners. The plugin-based technology, which allows for a range of interactive elements including video, games and even advertising, is already available for Google Android phones running the latest operating system revision, code-named “Froyo,” but technically known as Android version 2.2. This OS now runs on Google’s Nexus One and is expected to arrive on other Android phones like the Motorola Droid, Motorola Milestone, HTC Evo, HTC Incredible, HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S. Adobe has also now shipped Flash Player 10.1 for mobile to its device partners who will then prep the software for launch on Blackberry (RIM), webOS (Palm), Windows Phone 7, LiMo, MeeGo and Symbian smartphones. The one notable exception to this list is, of course, Apple’s iPhone.To Flash or Not to Flash?For some Android users, the promised ability to run Flash on their mobile phones was just as big a selling point in their purchasing decision as the lack of Flash on Apple’s iPhone was to others, or so they claim. The debate about the technology and its place in the mobile ecosystem has been publicly aired, dirty-laundry style, with a long-form memo posted by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who said the Adobe technology “falls short” in a mobile era that’s all about “low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards.” Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen then shot back via an interview with the Wall St. Journal calling Jobs’ missive at times “patently false,” and “a smokescreen,” and then concluded that the Apple CEO and himself simply have very different world views. “Our view of the world is multi-platform,” he explained. With today’s “multi-platform” shipment of Flash for mobile, it appears that view is close to being realized. But will consumers really want Flash, once it arrives?

BCCI under RTI? Ministers may oppose, ex-cricketers welcome

first_imgUnion Sports Minister Ajay Maken’s attempts to reform sports bodies seem to have hit a roadblock.Sources told Headlines Today on Tuesday that some senior ministers were opposed to the Sports Development Bill, which seeks to bring Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) under Right to Information Act (RTI) among other things. Sources said ministers have reservations against certain provisions of the proposed bill. They plan to raise the objections after it is introduced for the Cabinet approval later in the day. They have objection particularly to fixing the retirement age and tenure of chiefs of sports bodies.Some Opposition leaders have also expressed their reservations against the proposed bill. Interestingly, most of the sports bodies are headed by politicians without any change at the top for years.Reacting to the Sports Bill, senior BJP leader V.K. Malhotra said, “It is draconian law and not acceptable to any international sports bodies. If age is the factor, then prime minister, Delhi chief minister and Pranab Mukherjee (Finance Minister) are all above 70.”Some BCCI members have called it a tool to harass the cricket body.Young BJP MP and BCCI member Anurag Thakur opposed the proposal to bring the board under RTI. Thakur told Headlines Today that it could be used to harass the cricket body.”I oppose Sports Bill. RTI is a tool to harass. There is no age limit for politicians and prime minister. First the (sports) ministry should look into Sports Authority of India. It is an attempt to hide Commonwealth Games scam. Politicians are required in sport bodies,” Thakur insisted.advertisementCongress MP and BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla said, “I have not seen the draft bill. Show me the draft bill. How can it be under RTI when it does not take any grant from the government?”Former captains welcome moveFormer Indian cricket captains Kapil Dev and Mohammed Azharuddin favoured the BCCI becoming a national sports federation and falling under the purview of the RTI Act.Reacting to the developments on Sports Bill, former Indian cricket captain Kapil Dev said, “If government formulates a rule, the BCCI should follow the framework of the guidelines and I believe BCCI can work independently but must always toe the government line.” Azharuddin, a Congress MP from Moradabad, said, “It is good for sports bodies and their professional running. It (law) should be for all Sports Federations and there should be no exception.”Another former national cricketer Ajay Jadeja said, “The BCCI is really doing well but if the government is making some law then everyone has to come under it. As far as RTI is concerned, selection should not be a factor. Otherwise, BCCI should not be worried about the RTI.”Bill may affect ruling, Oppn parties alikeA number of politicians heading various sports bodies of the country for years could be in trouble if the Sports Bill becomes law.The proposed bill stipulates a maximum term of 12 years for presidents and eight years for all other office-bearers of the national sports federations.Among those who could be affected by the legislation of Sports Bill include jailed Congress MP Suresh Kalmadi who heads the Athletics Federation of India and the party’s senior leader Jagdish Tytler who is the president of Judo Federation of India.Leaders of main opposition party BJP, including Yashwant Sinha who heads the All India Tennis Association and V.K. Malhotra who heads the Archery Association of India might also lose their authority.Indian National Lok Dal leader Abhay Chautala was yet another politician who heads the Indian Boxing Federation.Left supports Maken’s Sports BillEven as some ministers and Congress MPs were opposed to Maken’s Sports Bill, it found support from the Left. CPI leader D. Raja said the BCCI must be accountable to government for the tax breaks it gets.”The BCCI gets tax exemptions and thus who is it accountable to. There should be some body that it should be answerable to,” Raja argued.last_img read more

Opening of Crawfish season delayed for two weeks

The last day of the Crawfish season will be 15th March, 2017.  Last season the fishing community of the Turks and Caicos benefited from an increase in crawfish landings. This appears to be the result of the stock starting to rebuild, and as long as we continue to implement the measures we have in place we are confident that this rebuilding will continue…”last_img read more
