Two Line Memorial Day Verses

Thoughts today,
Memories forever.

Sadly missed,
Lovingly remembered.

The tears in my eyes I can wipe away,
The ache in my heart will always stay.

Though absent you are very near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

Dearer still as the years depart,
He lives forever in my heart.

Four Line Memorial Day Verses

Sadly missed along life’s way,
Quietly remembered every day,
No longer in our life to share,
But in our hearts he’s always there.

We who love you, sadly miss you,
As it dawns another year,
In our lonely hours of thinking,
Thoughts of you are ever near.

Always a smile, instead of a frown,
Always a hand, when one is down,
Always true, thoughtful and kind,
Wonderful memories she left behind.

One thing we’ll always cherish,
No matter what life sends,
A memory of the happiness,
Just being friends.

Six Line Memorial Day Verses

Years fly by like autumn leaves,
But heartache and tears remain,
All I have left is precious memories
Of (both of) you, for today, for tomorrow,
And until my life is through.

Gone is the face we loved so dear
Silent is the face we loved to hear.
Too far away for sight or speech,
But not too far for thought to reach,
Sweet to remember him once here,
Who, though absent, is just as dear.

Months have grown day by day,
It’s now a year since she went away,
Thoughts are full and hearts do weigh,
Without her here to share the way,
Time may dull the hand of fate,
Memory forever recalls the date.

The Real Reason Why Apple iPad and Flash Can not Work Together – Touchscreen Interaction?

A news said that according to a senior Flash developer, the main reason why flash is always eliminated by Apple, from iPhone to the latest iPad, is because the current Flash websites can not function normally on touch screen devices, and this problem can not be solved easily by either Apple, Adobe or new hardware.

apple-vs-adobe-flash

Flash interactive content developer Morgan Adams said the main reason Flash can not operate on touch screen devices is because Apple lacks the necessary Flash technology deployment on its own products, including the newly-published iPad. On the contrary, some earlier reports said Apple was not willing to adopt Flash technology is because it occupies too much system resources, reduces phone performance, consumes a lot of power and collapses often.

The insiders indicate that although the above problems do exist, Adams is correct. The most current Flash games, menus and video players do require a visible cursor. These Flash components need to be triggered by mouse slip or actual click, which is quite popular in interactive design, and very important for Flash content as well. It is not necessarily to develop Flash content exclusively for touch screen, but we still can! People have to ensure that the existing Flash websites are running well first.

Therefore, you can imagine how awkward the Flash developers are when their self-developed flash websites can not be running on iPhone. However, there is a solution, develop the websites using the WebKit browser kernel CSS animation function. Desktop computer users can still use Flash, and through CSS animation technology, iPhone users also can see the same animation effects.

In our daily life, there are just some simple tips that can enable you to watch Flash on iPhone, iPad, etc without struggling between Apple and Adobe! Check this handy SWF to iPad Converter to know how!

Google Has Successfully Repaired the Flash Defects Existed in Windows OS

Google Chrome has recently issued an update, which successfully repaired the serious vulnerabilities existed in Adobe Flash Player. However, users of other browsers and operating systems still have to wait a little bit to get the update patch.

The reason why Chrome is able to repair the flaws in advance, is because of the ongoing cooperation between Adobe and Google, which allows Google to update the Flash version in advance. Adobe spokesman Wiebke Lips said this is exactly what Google is using to send the patches in advance to users via the browser automatic update mechanism.

In reverse, it takes longer time for Adobe to send the patches because it has to test this update on more than 60 various platforms or configurations.

This serious Flash vulnerability repaired by Chrome update may allow attackers to install malicious software in computers of the end users. Attackers may embed the malicious Flash file into Microsoft Excel, and sent it to particular contacts through e-mail. When the recipients open the file, their computers would be infected.

This vulnerability is currently only found in Flash existed in Windows OS. Microsoft Office 2010 suite temporarily won’t be attacked due to the built-in data execution limiting function.

YouTube Supports WebM Video Format – A Hardest Hit to Flash

webm1

YouTube recently announced that all the new videos uploaded to its server will be converted to WebM format, which gives Adobe Flash a big shock!

WebM is an open source video format consists of VP8 video signal decode and Vorbis audio stream developed by Google. It gains the wide support from popular browsers like Firefox 4, Opera 10.6 and Google Chrome. Since YouTube has declared that WebM will be the final video format for those uploaded videos in the future, it puts a lot of pressures on other browsers such as Apple’s Safari and Microsoft’s IE, forcing those browsers to provide WebM video local playback as well.

YouTube’s decision to convert all the video format to WebM will definitely reduce the popularity of Adobe Flash video format. Google has also announced that it will gradually convert the Flash video previously stored on YouTube to WebM video format. It is said 30% videos on YouTube have been converted to WebM already.

In addition to the open source WebM conversion, Youtube has restated that it will develop its own HTML 5 video player. HTML 5 video tag supports many formats, including the WebM VP8 video signal decode.

Considering the leading position of YouTube in video streaming market, the format has been chosen will probably become the market benchmark. Because it decided to use WebM format, the leading position of Adobe in the network video field starts to shake inevitably. The insiders said.
