People love to say “fail”. This week’s Macworld piece looks at APPLE FAIL, NETBOOK FAIL and FLASH FAIL.
on the subj of flash fail, i recently acquired flash pro cs5 & holy total failure, batman! unlike the other cs5 apps, flash runs only in a single unified window & when you close the current flash document, the bloody app quits!
don’t recall flash cs3 being so incredibly inept. flash cs5 is so bad, i’ve stopped using it entirely – also, try to upgrade the flash player embedded in the app: good luck with that …
ok, retract one part of my rant: you can break up the unified window; it’s just not a preferences option. the second part of my rant remains valid.
add to that an attempt to login to adobe’s support forums to see if there’s a solution or at least to officially complain & one discovers adobe can’t build webapps to save their damned lives! after login, the site asked me to create a new user id. er, i’ve been an adobe customer for years. wtf?
Wow dude… you SO picked the PERFECT place for that ramble. Congrats.
Hell, Flash makes my netbook slow and annoying, beyond its normal sloth.
How Adobe thinks it’ll ever be useful on a handheld (well, okay, “ever” is a bit much, but this year? Next year?) is beyond me.
