"Early reviewers of the revamped MacBook Air, which Apple unveiled Wednesday at a press event in San Francisco, started noticing something funny when they tried to test the ultra-slim laptop's performance on streaming-video sites like Hulu and YouTube: a little error message, reading "missing plug-in," where the video player should have been."
App Inventor for Android
Got an idea for an Android App but not sure how to build it? Enter this awesome tool from Google! "To use App Inventor, you do not need to be a developer. This is because instead of writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app's behavior."
Make your publication feel like a native iPad App. "PadPressed allows publishers to take their content and make it beautifully formatted for the iPad without the need to go through the app store. Right now PadPressed functions as a WordPress plugin that works with your existing theme to deliver the best browsing experience possible for your readers when accessed from an iPad."
NXNEi Accepting Speaking Ideas
Don't forget submissions to speak or organize a panel at NXNE Interactive 2011 are open. Get your ideas in by Oct 31. "NXNE is looking for panel discussions and presentations that will provide a rich and valuable experience for our attendees. The topics can cross a multitude of disciplines that intersect with Interactive at some point. We've intentionally left out a "categories" field on the submission form because we don't want to box in your imaginations."
