Adobe has finally bitten the bullet and climbed onboard the HTML5 wagon. In true behemoth methodology Adobe has acquired two stopgap companies, Typekit and Nitobi, to bolster Flash.

For years Adobe has battled on with it’s floundering Flash platform,  it’s now wholeheartedly on board with the biggest and most popular alternatives, web standards including HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. Today via its Adobe Max developer and designer conference Adobe’s CTO Kevin Lynch took the stage, surrounded by the very developers wrestling with these very transitions, to the announce the two acquisitions.

Each acquisition gives Adobe a solid new starting point for the missing points of new-age web technology. Terms haven’t been disclosed,  it’s not clear whether Adobe had to pay a premium for the companies.

Our favorite Korean semiconductor behemoth, Samsung, has  just announced it’s newest and fastest version of the Exynos mobile processor. The 4212, a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 clocked at 1.5GHz. 4212 is built using a 32mn process using high-K metal gate technology that that Samsungs says makes it 30 percent more efficient and 25 percent faster and a 50 per cent increase in 3D graphics grunt over the previous Exynos – 4210 – chip. The 4210 was capable of many impressive feats, unfortunately its 3D abilities were hampered by the limits of its HDMI controller.

The new cpu gets version 1.4 and hence the freedom to run stereoscopic imagery at an impressive 70fps. The chips will be available in Q4 of this year. The chip comes too late for the Galaxy S II LTE but you can expect to see it in future super-smart-phones before too long.

The Exynos 4212 incorporates a rich portfolio of advanced codec accelerators that support digital still images, video recording and play-back at 1080p full-HD resolution, an image signal processor and an on-chip HDMI 1.4 interface. Read the full article »»»»

Seems the war betwixt behemoths, Apple and Samsung is just getting warmed up.
