Adobe's New Creative Cloud Apps Are Now Available for Rent

Last month, Adobe announced it was killing Creative Suite in favor of the subscription-only Creative Cloud. Today, the company made the new Creative Cloud apps, including Photoshop CC, available for subscription for $50 a month for the suite or $20 a month for individual apps.

The company is hyping new features in these desktop programs, including syncing your files across the desktop, web, and mobile, and new app-specific tools, such as Smart Sharpen in Photoshop and the Touch Type tool in Illustrator. You can see all the updates in the Adobe press release linked below.

We’ve talked before about the advantages and disadvantages of Adobe’s Creative Cloud (in short, whether or not you should subscribe depends on your situation, but if you plan to upgrade this year, do so before July 31st, so you can take advantage of Adobe’s discount: $30 a month if you already have Adobe CS, for the first year).

Some Handy Upgrades Are Coming To Gmail (GOOG)

google send money via gmail and google wallet

Gmail is already pretty great, but Google just announced a couple of new features to make it even better.

For one, Google added some “quick action” buttons designed to help you better handle your email and accomplish tasks on your to-do list.

For example, if your friend invites you to a birthday party, you can RSVP without ever opening the email. The quick actions are rolling out over the next few weeks.

Another exciting feature is the ability to send money through Gmail, thanks to a new integration with Google Wallet. As long as your bank account is linked to Google Wallet or you have Google Wallet credit, you can send money for free to friends and family.

Google plans to roll out this feature “over the coming months” to U.S.-based Gmail users over the age of 18.

Google Apps discontinues basic package, asks new customers to pony up $50 per user for premium

Google Apps discontinues basic package, asks all new customers to pony up $50 per user for premium

Looking towards Mountain View to provide a suite of digital tools for your new business? Make sure to pen per-user costs into your ledger — Google Apps isn’t free anymore. According to Google’s enterprise blog, the basic Google Apps package is being abandoned to streamline the service, offering businesses a single, $50 per user option that promises 24/7 phone support, 25GB inboxes and a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Pre-existing free customers can still hum along unmolested, of course, and the standard pricing doesn’t apply to schools or universities, either. Personal Google accounts are still free too, doling out gratis Gmail and Drive access to anyone with a unique user name. The team hopes that streamlining the Apps will allow it to provide better service, possibly offering enterprise users new features on a faster timetable.

Google Translate gets new features, makes sure you choose the right words

Google has added functionality to the web version of its Translate service, now making it even easier for us to use and understand foreign tongues. Instead of a single result, you’ll be presented with a list of the most common translations, ordered and labeled by how frequently each one is used. What’s more, synonyms are also displayed next to the assortment of results, but this particular feature only works when translating into English, although more languages are expected to be supported soon. We’ve had a quick play around with it, and suggest you head over to the Google Translate page and try out the new elements for yourself. Now, if only the website translator could make those Japanese pages a little easier to read.

Google adds samesite recommendations to 1 buttons, but only for platform preview testers

On the eve of its I/O event, Google is continuing to roll out new features, one of which is expanded functionality for its ubiquitous +1 sharing buttons that can be found all over the web (and on this site). For users that are a member of its platform preview test group, other than clicking once to +1 something, or clicking again to share it on Google+, now on mouseover it will display recommended pages as seen above. According to the corresponding blog post, it pulls in related content and stuff shared by friends, and will only display selections from the same domain or subdomain as the page the button is on. Google anticipates this will go live to all users “in the next few weeks”, if you can’t wait until then hit the more coverage link below to join the preview and give feedback on how well it’s working.

Flash 11 and AIR 3 landing tonight and delivering 7.1 surround sound to connected home theaters

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2011/10/03/flash-11-and-air-3-landing-tonight-and-delivering-7-1-surround-s/

Adobe Flash Platform

Later tonight Adobe Flash 11 and AIR 3 will hit the tubes delivering with it a host of new features, including hardware acceleration for 2D and 3D graphics — at least for desktops. Stage 3D support will be added to the mobile variants for Android, iOS and BlackBerry at a later date. AIR 3 will also be sprucing up connected entertainment devices, like Samsung SmartTVs, with the ability to deliver Flash-based games and content to your home theater system. What’s more, Adobe has baked in support for both Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound. That means both 5.1 and 7.1 sound can be built into an AIR app, whether it be a game or streaming video, and pumped out at up to 512Kbps though your Blu-ray player or other connected theater component. For more, including a demo of a Flash app on a phone and a TV communicating, check out the trio of press releases and video after the break.

Netflix spins DVD-by-mail service off into Qwikster, says it’s ‘done’ with price changes (video)

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/19/netflix-spins-dvd-by-mail-service-off-into-qwikster-says-its/

Over on Netflix’s official blog, company head Reed Hastings has announced in a surprisingly humble blog post and video (embedded after the break) that it’s splitting the DVD-by-mail business away into a new venture dubbed Qwikster. While the recent price changes already split the cost for each service, when this takes effect in a few weeks it will result in two different websites, two different sets of movie ratings and queues, and two different charges on customer’s bills. He admits two separate sites may make it more difficult to manage a presence on both, but says dropping the need for compatibility between the two will enable new features to balance that out. Another change? Netflix Qwikster (is there anything good about that name?) is getting into video game rentals, available for an extra charge similar to the existing Blu-ray disc option.

While the blog post blames a lack of communication for much of the backlash (and obviously cancellations), it’s about to become very clear that Netflix is “primarily a streaming company.” Also mentioned is “substantial” additional streaming content coming in the next few months. Whatever the company calls itself, charges, or changes on its website, if Netflix wants to talk its way back into subscriber’s good graces, starting with something new to watch is the way to do it.
