An exclusive look at the new iPhone 6


The rumor mill just keeps churning, but we got these pics to you first, folks!

And… scene!

I removed the “Latest Adobe News” (formerly MXNA, Macromedia XML News Aggreator) feed from my own RSS feed today, which felt a little anticlimactic, considering how glued I used to be to the pulse of all things Flash/ActionScript. For the past several months, however, I have to admit I’ve barely glanced at it.

Who would have thought a few years ago that PHP, JavaScript and Objective-C would be my tools of choice eventually?

Thanks to the efforts of Laravel (PHP), JQuery/Angular/Node (Javascript) and Cocos2D/Cocoa (Objective-C) communities, those old-school technologies have truly become exciting over the past few years. Thanks to Adobe, however, Flash/Flex/ActionScript has become… I guess, limited at best.

Guess I could have just listened to my 2005 self.

Those e-books you bought last year and never got around to reading? Better read ’em quick. The once-useful Adobe has plans for them…

All growed up (and out)

I used to spend most of my time here evangelizing about Macromedia Flash, searching for the perfect OS X text editor and generally blathering on about the world, the Web, and things I thought were pretty cool at the time. For the past several years, though, I’ve “gone dark” online — sorta.

Truth is, I’ve been more active than ever lately — as a Web and mobile developer, online contributor, new father and bottle washer. I’ve tweeted and evangelized on other subjects (and for other organizations), and overall been pretty happy.

A few updates for those keeping score at home:

  1. I haven’t touched Flash in years. Turns out I stopped enjoying Flash development at about the same time the rest of the world decided it was the bee’s knees.
  2. I moved on from jEdit to KomodoEdit, and eventually, to KomodoIDE. I’d always planned to blog heavily about the transition, but it turns out, the love affair was also brief: As of now, my new “best text editor ever” is SublimeText (Still waiting to jump head-first into 3.0, though).
  3. I toyed with Android development and hated every minute of that infernal hodgepodge that Google is trying to pass off as a viable option. I have some fairly major titles on the Play store, but I feel pain for anybody that has to use them on Android. This is, of course, just my opinion… but that OS is a tremendous pile of crap, and I’d highly recommend that anyone still using it upgrade as soon as possible to iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry or at least a 1997 Nokia handheld.
  4. I don’t blog much anymore. But that could change. Probably not.
  5. I tweet a bit but nothing of interest.
  6. I absolutely love what I do for a living, whatever that happens to be right now.

So thanks for asking.
