"Adobe's plans on Flash" or "Is Flash dead?"

Please people, once and for all:

Adobe did not drop Flash Player support.

Adobe did not drop Flash Player support for mobile platforms.

Adobe did drop Flash support for the browser on mobile platforms.

This does not mean Flash is dead. On the contrary, Flash is reborn.
Instead of burying their heads into the sand Adobe admitted HTML5 to be more suited than Flash for websites and focused the tool development to another area Flash is good on - native applications.

Free publicity to but the best way to understand about cloud computing.

TestFlight App - Error Uploading Build

I'm a very recent iOS / Objective-C developer. As such, very frequently I find myself banging my head against the wall - either due to the certificate/profile nightmare or to something as such...
Today I spent 6 hours (!) trying to figure out this error:

"Invalid IPA: The keychain-access-group in the embedded.mobileprovision and your binary don't match."
This occurred when trying to upload an AdHoc release to the TestFlight application. I'm new to this, but I had been able to do this successfully before.

I finally discovered the problem after following the steps described on this document on "How to create an IPA". For some reason, my "Archive" scheme settings were changed and had the Build Configuration set to "Release" instead of "Ad Hoc", as it should...

Thank you, TestFlightApp support.

Flash to HTM5 converter by Google

How can you enable iPhone/iPad/iPod users to access your website's flash content?

Option #1: Teach them how to jailbreak their device
Option #2: Create from scratch html fallbacks for all that flash content on your website
Option #3: Automatically convert all flash content using Google Swiffy.

This Google Labs tool will convert most flash content to HTML5. The result will be visible on any Webkit-based browser (such as Safari or Chrome).
Check the swiffy gallery and FAQ for more info.

Download Old Adobe AIR Runtimes or SDKs

For many times I needed to download a specific version of the Adobe AIR runtime or of the sdk. Unfortunately when you search for a specific runtime or sdk version in Google you will not easily find Adobe's official page, so here it is:
