The fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) is been slung around by profiteers like
folding chairs at a WWE event. The haters are still being haters. Nothing new
developers to start using their HTML5 software.
The context is all wrong here. Very, very few Flex developers have shifted,
moved, changed over, or whatever you want to call it… to HTML5 (or anything
There is not a move to HTML5
I will go as far as to say that there is not a move to HTML5. The simple fact
is that, developers are being developers. No matter the background, we are
always trying to broadening our skill sets. This includes HTML5 since it
started showing up a few years ago. For anyone to imply, or state outright,
that there is some mass exodus from Flex is completely false!
The reality is still the same, Flash Player ... (more)

in the community. Adobe can only blame themselves for this.
What was lost in the message is that, although they will not be actively
adding new features to the mobile browser Flash Player, they are continuing
to support the mobile plug-in.

Google Glass is disrupting the industry by focusing on the user experience
combined with social norms to create a mass consumer product that is socially
acceptable to wear and incredibly functional.
Google does own a patent on gazed-based advertising and their core business
is based around advertising, I can guarantee that there will be advertising
opportunities. But, I’d like to clarify the difference between gaze and
eye tracking. Google Glass currently does not have an eye facing camera that

templates that are generated in a Flex Builder project. By default, Flex
