Adobe CS3 on Snow Leopard, or how I learned to love flip on chrome

Friday, August 28th, 2009

If your internet connection seemed a tiny bit slower yesterday, it was no-doubt caused by the whole CS3 on Snow Leopard… thing (start here if you want).  At first I thought the whole thing was handled wrong… and then it exploded on twitter (perhaps not even peaking yet see search) … but then I took another 2 seconds to really ponder and study the event and I am just fascinated in what everyone could maybe learn.  If I explained how everyone SHOULD have behaved I’d be doing it now–in retrospect… with all the benefits hindsight provides.  After “Hoss-gate” and “that dude at TED showing Papervision and AR-gate” I guess it’s unlikely things will change real soon.  Anyway, I had to add SOME fuel to the fire… hopefully the analogous satire is understandable:

Beavis and Butthead go to MAX

The first of several videos related to the upcoming Adobe MAX conference.  If you visit http://max.adobe.com/ then click the pause button (which remains invisible until you wave your cursor over the self-starting with-audio video piece)… then click Brett Rampata (which is the 4th from the last) you can hear him discussing an AIR app he worked on for the Jackass TV show.  Watch his little interview first for the complete context but this Beavis and Butthead parody was truly inspired by Brett.
