Installing Flash CS5 will break your Flash debugging in FireFox and Flash/Flex Builder

Sometimes I am amazed that two parts of a single company can't work together.

Today was a classic example - I needed to install Adobe's Flash CS5 authoring tool, and already had a debug Flash player installed in FireFox. I also use Flash Builder for debugging Flex in the standalone player.

Installing CS5 broke both these things ! Why CS5 felt the need to mess, without asking or apparently thinking, I have no idea.

The fixes were fairly easy, but shouldn't have been needed.

Recreating the Flex 3 LinkBar and LinkButton in Flex 4

Recently I needed a proper Flex 4 version of the venerable Flex 4 LinkBar (a horizontal line of links), but all I could find was a posting of the beginning of the implementation. I also needed it to behave as a toggle so any one link could be selected.

Flash Camp Manchester 2010

The latest Flash Camp event was held in Manchester last week, and was a day-long series of talks designed to inspire Flash and RIA developers - a 'taster' as we were told during the brief warm up.
Right off the bat everyone who went got a bunch of awesome freebies, from Thermos mugs to Adobe Rubik cubes, full copies of the FDT ActionScript IDE and a free film from the blinkbox streaming site; fairly awesome for a free event.

THE CURRENT STATE OF MOBILE UX
Anthony & Jerome Ribot (Ribot)

Antony and Jerome are co-founders of Ribot - a design lab specialising in enjoyable small screen interfaces and experiences. They're not Flash specific.
Over the last 20 years they've seen the world move from analogue to digital, but much more recently gone human - there isn't a third party any more (like a mouse) between the the experience and the user.
They explained that mobile is very constrained (RAM and display size, network latency, etc.) but this gives you scope and focus- a challenge.
