    Twitter Shuts Down TweetDeck For Android, iPhone And AIR, Discontinues TweetDeck’s Facebook Integration

    TweetDeck, the feature-rich Twitter client that Twitter acquired in 2011, will soon mostly exist as a web-based service, and the native Mac and Windows apps will play second fiddle to the web and Chrome apps. The company is shutting down the AIR-based version of TweetDeck for desktop and will remove the Android and iPhone apps from their respective mobile stores in May. In addition, the… Read More

    Review: Macbook Air 13-inch


    Short Version: There will be no pleasing either side of the Apple fanboy divide with this review so I’ll say it up front: If you’re looking for an alternative to a heavier Apple laptop – a MacBook Pro, say, or an Apple Powerbook 170 – and you travel, the MacBook Air is an excellent choice. If you rarely travel and/or are not a Mac fan, you will probably be better served… Read More

  • Shunned By Apple, Adobe Embraces Android With AIR 2.5

    Shunned By Apple, Adobe Embraces Android With AIR 2.5

    Apple keeps giving Adobe the brush-off—what with the new MacBook Airs shipping without Flash and Apple’s prohibition (recently rescinded) on porting Flash apps to the iPhone. Without Apple, industry observers are asking “Where does Adobe go from here?” Apparently, right into the arms of Android. On Monday, Adobe will be releasing AIR 2.5 at its Adobe MAX developer… Read More

  • Free As A Bird: Initial Thoughts After A Day With The New MacBook Air

    I’ve done it. I’ve worn the battery completely down on one of the new MacBook Airs. As such, I thought I’d post some initial thoughts about the machine. This isn’t a huge all-encompassing review — I haven’t even used it outside of my apartment yet — but rather my initial thoughts for those of you thinking about rushing out to buy one. All day… Read More

    Adobe Debuts AIR For Android – Now Let's Wait For The Apps

    The AIR for Android runtime is now available in Android Market, enabling developers to push mobile AIR apps built with Adobe’s developer platform. You’ll need a handset equipped with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and obviously this doesn’t mean you’ll be able to run your native AIR desktop apps like you know them on your phone. They’ll need to be specifically built for… Read More

  • AIR For Android, And Adobe’s Plan To Deliver Apps Across All Mobile Devices

    The bane of all mobile app developers is the need to rewrite the same app over and over again for different devices: the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Palm Pre, Nokia, Windows Mobile. Adobe is positioning its Flash platform (which includes the Flash player, AIR, developer tools, and media servers) as the write-once, deploy-anywhere solution for both the mobile Web and apps. Today at the… Read More

    Dell Adamo XPS looks like it could cut the air in half

    The industry is all a buzz with the latest entry in the “I’m the thinnest laptop” competition. The latest Dell Adamo is definitely a strong contender, at 9.99 mm at some points. Of course, that’s just the official figure. I would have tested it myself but I forgot my calipers. Read More

    Adamo could out-Air the Air

    Dell is hinting at a tiny laptop line called Adamo which might be some sort of boutique line or actually be the name of a new, ultrathin laptop that will give the MacBook Air a run for its money. Ashlee Vance at NYT writes: But most telling of all might have been the reaction of Michael Tatelman, Dell’s vice president in charge of consumer sales and marketing, to my question about whether… Read More

    RIDES Mac-powered Hyundai Genesis

    It’s every Mac fanboys wet dream to embed an OS X touchscreen computer inside their ride. When RIDES does a mobile Mac workstation though, it’s more of an Apple Store on wheels with – get this – two Mac Mini’s, a MacBook Air, iPod Touch, iPhone 3G, 20-inch Cinema display, along with a bunch of car audio wares all within the surprisingly sexy Hyundai Genesis sedan.

    Not So CrunchDeal: MacBook Air with 64GB SSD for $1,799

    Well stuff a finger up my nose and call me stupid. The Apple Store is selling the refurb MacBook Air with 64GB SSD drive for $1,799. Since the laptop once cost a ball-numbing $3,098, it’s pretty clear that the SSD option was pretty much a failure. I just bought the older 80GB Air for reasons I will not go into here, but let’s just say that I’m pissed especially since the… Read More

    MacBook Air gets a bump


    The MacBook Air, being a newer design than the aging MacBooks and Pros, got little more than a bump in specs today. But it was a good, solid bump! Here are the changes: SSD drive increased in capacity to 128GB Processor now up to 1.86GHz with a faster (1066MHz) FSB and 6MB L2 cache GeForce 9400M 256MB video card (thank god for that) Mini Displayport instead of Micro-DVI (probably a smart… Read More

Clearly the Air isn’t for all of us, but folks with a huge, nasty IT-department Dell will think of this as a breath of fresh “air.” Ha! Willie! Read More
