As if you didn’t know?

If you are seeing this through any of the standard aggregators, you have probably already heard the news. Macromedia has announced the latest update to its product line, along with a new and updated website. But one thing that I think is amazing, which you might have missed, is that the site is done in CSS! All I can say, is that is quite an accomplishment for the MX 2004 team that developed the site. I pay homage to your abilities! (So, I take it you used Dreamweaver’s new CSS layout visualization abilities?)

Amazon.com and Flash Video

with 4 comments


It isnt Flash Video. But, the ‘preloader’ and the product details are Flash :) Talk about having one of those “I feel like an idiot” moments!


Well, today I was browsing Amazon.com looking for a new cell phone. I was checking out the Nokia 3650 page and saw a link that said “Watch it in action”. I thought “hmmm….lets see what this is.” To my great happiness it was video describing the feature set of the 3650, and guess what Amazon was using as its delivery method…..you got it….. Flash Video. Make sure and check it out…
