Adobe to Acquire Macromedia!

I’m completely shocked. Adobe will be buying Macromedia! Two of the biggest web applications companies out there. I have long since chosen Macromedia products over Adobe, and now I fear for the futures of Dreamweaver and Fireworks. I’m unsure of what the future will bring, but I’m worried that, without competition, Adobe could take the […]

What is RSS? – A Non Technical Intro

There has been a lot of talk in the web world about RSS lately and there are lots of sites that tell you what it is, however I’m going to try and explain it in an easy to understand way. RSS, Really Simple Syndication, is a way for a web site to condense their content, […]

MIMA & Cool Websites

The other night I went to my first Minnesota Interactive Marketing Association (MIMA) meeting and the focus of the evening was favorite websites. Anyone who wanted could discuss a favorite website of theirs and tell why. It could be their favorite due to good content, nice design, unique idea, good colors or whatever you could […]

Inernet Explorer 7. Fix more than security please.

The only reason they are updating is because of security issues and maybe some Firefox envy. Since this is a number upgrade, I’ve been thinking about it and hoping […]

Large Companies and their Websites

I was searching around the other day looking at larger companies websites and I have to say I was quite disappointed at what I saw. Quite a few major sites don’t care about what’s outside their main web design. And to me, that’s just plain laziness and it detracts from the quality of their site. […]

New Flash Based

They launched a new and it’s almost all in Flash! It’s amazing that such a large company would use a format that wasn’t as search engine friendly as HTML. At the same time, it’s good that someone is showcasing what Flash can do. It’s not all about moving things around the screen. What they […]
