Adobe Flash Player 10 beta

Adobe Flash Player 10, code-named "Astro," introduces new expressive features and visual performance improvements that allow interactive designers and developers to build the richest and most immersive Web experiences. These new capabilities also empower the community to extend Flash Player and to take creativity and interactivity to a new level.

This public prerelease is an opportunity for developers and consumers to test and provide early feedback to Adobe on new features, enhancements, and compatibility with previously authored content. Once you’ve installed Flash Player 10 beta, you can view interactive demos. You can also help make Flash Player better by visiting all of your favorite sites, making sure they work the same or better than with the current player.

Key New Features:

  • 3D Effects - Easily transform and animate any display object through 3D space while retaining full interactivity. Fast, lightweight, and native 3D effects make motion that was previously reserved for expert users available to everyone. Complex effects are simple with APIs that extend what you already know.
  • Custom Filters and Effects - Create your own portable filters, blend modes, and fills using Adobe® Pixel Bender™, the same technology used for many After Effects CS3 filters. Shaders in Flash Player are about 1KB and can be scripted and animated at runtime.
  • Advanced Text Layout - A new, highly flexible text layout engine, co-existing with TextField, enables innovation in creating new text controls by providing low-level access to text offering right-to-left and vertical text layout, plus support for typographic elements like ligatures.
  • Enhanced Drawing API - Runtime drawing is easier and more powerful with re-styleable properties, 3D APIs, and a new way of drawing sophisticated shapes without having to code them line by line.
  • Visual Performance Improvements – Applications and videos will run smoother and faster with expanded use of hardware acceleration. By moving several visual processing tasks to the video card, the CPU is free to do more.

See the release notes for more information regarding this prerelease technology.

Flash Player beta 10, feature demos and videos, are now available at labs.adobe.com:

Now you can make money with microsoft live search 'Cash back'

Microsoft Offers Cash To Use Its Search Engine


Microsoft plans to entice advertisers and users of its search engine with savings on online purchases on a site called Live Search cashback.

Microsoft unveiled plans Wednesday to entice advertisers and users of its search engine with cash-back savings on online purchases, launching a site called Live Search cashback.

The new site is ostensibly a product search site, but any of the products found by using Live Search cashback can be bought for a certain percentage off even the cheapest price that comes up from a variety of stores participating in the promotion. Advertisers, meanwhile, will only pay per purchase, not per click.

Microsoft has been looking for ways to increase its share of the Web search and advertising market dominated by Google. It recently backed out of a $40-billion-plus acquisition bid for Yahoo, though talks are reported to be underway to buy or partner with Yahoo's search and Web advertising businesses. Top Microsoft search and ad exec Satya Nadella is expected to lay out Live Search cashback and other Microsoft search plans later on Wednesday at Microsoft's annual advertiser conference.

Yahoo Glue Pages Launches In India

Yahoo! India, a leading global Internet company, today announced the launch of a new concept for Yahoo! India Search called Glue Pages Beta, available exclusively at www.yahoo.in. This new search experience collates and integrates the most relevant information from across the Web onto a single "visual" search results page. Glue Pages Beta, which aggregates text, images, and video content, is available for select search terms across categories such as health, sports, entertainment, travel, technology, and finance.

Designed to save time by offering a new way to find answers quickly, Glue Pages Beta is ideal for topics with broad coverage across a variety of information sources. For example, a search for "diabetes" combines results from HowStuffWorks, Yahoo! Groups, Yahoo! Health, Yahoo! Answers, and blogs. A search for "Aishwarya Rai" would include biographical quick-facts, videos, music tracks, photos, and content from Yahoo! Answers.

Results will be displayed alongside classic Yahoo! India Search results. Consumers will also find links for other Glue Pages on topics related to their query.

Key benefits of Glue Pages Beta

1) Collates and integrates the best information from across the Web onto a single topical page

2) Uses intuitive search technology to identify the most relevant combination of text, images and video content for select popular search queries, alongside classic Yahoo! India Search results

3) Saves time and helps eliminate guess work involved in clicking on multiple web links

4) Initially available across categories like health, sports, entertainment, travel, technology and finance

"Searching on Glue Pages Beta will result in an experience that promises more than just web links. Users will receive more relevant, visually appealing search results from across the Web in one topical page. The new Glue Pages Beta feature for Yahoo! India Search supports our strategy to make Yahoo! the leading starting point on the Internet and demonstrates our commitment to provide a compelling online search experience," said Gopal Krishna, Head of Audience, Yahoo! India.

"Glue Pages Beta limits guesswork for the user by providing the best of web, all onto one 'at-a-glance' page. Over time, Glue Pages Beta will be made available to more categories that are relevant to users in India. We are excited to open this up further and work with a wider ecosystem of consumers, publishers, developers and advertisers in the future," said Sandeep Shrivastava, Director - Search, Yahoo! India.

With a focus on providing a compelling and intuitive online search experience, the new Glue Pages Beta helps enable users in India to derive maximum value from their search efforts. As this beta evolves, Yahoo! India Search will explore various ways to supplement algorithmically generated Glue Pages with topical pages built and maintained by local subject-matter experts from the Internet community.

Now Google can translate into Hindi


After a long wait, finally Google has added Hindi translation service into Google Translator. Now this Google application will allow automated translation between Hindi and English and vice-versa. This will definitely make Google more acceptable in Hindi speaking population of India. Still there is a huge population in India, which does not understand English, but want to access internet, so with this service they can avail all the advantages of internet.

For example if you type “Abhishek” using regular English characters and hit the space bar, then “mera” will be converted to the correspoding Hindi word. This service is also very useful for Indian bloggers as with the help of this service they can easily create their blogs in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. So Indian bloggers, be ready to create blogs in your native language.

According to Google, they are working to support other Indian languages and will introduce them as soon as the automatic translation meets their standards. However they have no estimated time limits or dead lines for such projects, they don’t know how long such projects take, since the problem is complex and each language presents its own unique challenges. In India, only 12.8% people understand English, so this new Google service to translate into Hindi and other Indian languages will likely to spread the reach of internet in the remote towns and villages of India. By the way, you can read my blog in Hindi also.
