YouTube to Lumia 920: Lumia 920

Desktop IE 10 adds Flash Player as plugin but Metro IE 10 doesn’t. As a consequence, users may find it a fancy story to play Flash on Nokia Lumia 920.

Top 5 Anticipations about Microsoft Surface Pro

When it is released in summer 2013, Surface RT bore lofty expectations to be an iPad killer. However, the killer now turns out to be a joker after it was lagged far behind by iPad tablets in sales volume. The same story goes to Windows 8 who sees an increase in market share that is far less than one has expected. Therefore, all the pressure is now on the shoulder of Microsoft Surface Pro. Surface Pro not only needs to send Microsoft the power to challenge Apple in tablet market but also helps Windows 8 rob more shares in operating system field.

Surface Pro

Therefore, with praises, doubts and anticipations, Microsoft Surface Pro was finally released to the market a few hours ago. Supporters are cheering and doubters are taking wait-and-see approaches. In fact, there are only two choices left for Surface Pro, to be a killer of Windows 8 or to be a savor. Generally speaking, the fate of Surface Pro mainly keens on its abilities to fulfill customers’ anticipations. Therefore, this post has collected top 5 anticipations about Microsoft Surface Pro.

Surface Pro Anticipation 1: Good compatibility

Surface Pro Anticipation: Compatibility

An important reason that prevents Surface RT from being a market hit is its awful compatibility. Surface RT adds no support to all the programs that can run on previous Windows systems. It means users can only enjoy those newly designed apps on Surface RT.  Moreover, lacking a platform for third-party apps like iTunes, Surface RT can only make use of limited apps. To make it worse, some of those apps are even poorly designed. However, it is said that as an Intel core driven tablet, Surface Pro can be compatible to almost all Windows programs. Therefore, it can be generally viewed as a Windows laptop that is much easier to take with. Moreover, the battery that can last for five to six hours is much better than the battery of most laptops.

Surface Pro Anticipation 2: Fully baked Windows 8

Surface Pro Anticipation: System

Windows RT devices and Windows 8 mobiles are not quite popular in the market because they are only equipped with disabled Windows 8 systems. When users think they can manage certain tasks with Surface RT, they become quite angry to find out that they can’t. For example, IE 10 shall be able to support Adobe Flash. However, users are only allowed to play Flash contents on Surface RT from those trusted sites. To make it worse, Windows 8 users can not even watch online Flash with Metro IE 10. However, theoretically speaking, the fully baked Windows 8 will help Surface Pro users to get rid of those troubles because users can download Adobe Flash Player as plugin for IE 10.

Surface Pro Anticipation 3: More retail stores

Surface Pro Anticipation: Store

Another reason that leads to the failure of Surface RT is its wrong market strategy. Microsoft is only willing to cooperate with big retail stores like Best Buy and Amazon to promote Surface RT. As a consequence, in many areas, even though lovers want to buy the tablet, they can’t find appropriate ways. Moreover, the limitation in the number of authorized retail stores has killed the possibilities of innovative marketing strategies. According to recent rumors that Microsoft is planning to grant more retail stores the right to sell Surface Pro. This not only promotes sales volume of Surface Pro but also gives consumers more choices.

Surface Pro Anticipation 4: Colorful touch cover

Surface Pro Anticipation: Touch cover

A most innovative point of Surface Pro lies in its touch cover which can be used as either protective case or physical keyboard. Therefore, once the touch cover can be more attractive, there is a bigger chance for Surface Pro to sell itself. It is said that Surface Pro will be equipped with colorful touch cover where consumers can trace fashionable elements. Once it is true, it really makes the Microsoft tablet much more attractive. Moreover, Microsoft is also working on to make the touch cover more comfortable for consumers to operate.

Surface Pro Anticipation 5: High security

Surface Pro Anticipation: Security

The latest scandals have made the poor situations of Windows RT even worse. Days after some hackers cracks down Windows RT, Microsoft still fails to provide a good solution. Then recent news came that a bug has appeared in Windows RT system that can be only solved by restart the device repeatedly. Therefore, the system security of Surface Pro turns out to be an anticipated topic. However, it seems that high security will become the anticipation for Surface Pro that is not hard to fulfill. According to some test, even without anti-virus software, Windows 8 Pro still does best in system security.

Windows RT: More Domains Will Come to Flash Whitelist

This is the best time for Adobe Flash Player who continues to be an irreplaceable program in traditional PC. This is the worst time for Adobe Flash Player who has lost support of Android and iOS devices for being a vulnerable and power consuming application in mobile market. However, contrary to most people’s predictions, Windows 8 devices are not going to follow suit. In fact, giving the fact that Microsoft is trying to add more domain names to Flash whitelist in Windows RT, Windows 8 devices will be provided with better Flash support in the future.

Flash Whitelist

What is on earth the Flash whitelist? It is true that Windows 8 has used Adobe Flash Player as a built-in plugin. However, as the versions of IE 10 vary, supports to Flash contents on Windows 8 differ. If users are using desktop IE 10 on Windows 8 Pro, they can enjoy Flash on Windows 8 devices without limitations. If they are running IE 10 on Windows RT or Metro, they are only allowed to visit Flash contents on limited websites. The list that includes those trusted websites are named Flash whitelist.

The reason for the birth of Flash whitelist can be easily seen. Since Adobe Flash Player is not an evil program, it is those poorly-secured Flash programs that bring bad reputations to Adobe Flash Player. Therefore, the solution to turn vulnerable Adobe Flash Player to become a safe application is to blacklist those hostile Flash contents. This is exactly the task Windows RT and Metro tries to manage with the Flash whitelist. Generally speaking, the most influential Flash based websites like YouTube will be added to the Flash whitelist in the first place and then other domains who have pasted the tests of Microsoft. So far, over 1000 domains are included in the Flash whitelist of Windows RT and Microsoft is working on to get more reliable Flash websites for users.

Just as every coin gets two sides, Flash whitelist makes Windows RT a securer system but brings troubles to users. Obviously, the existing domains in Flash whitelist is far from enough when compared with thousands of existing Flash based websites. Therefore, problems like playing Flash content on Surface RT turns out to be a headache of most Windows RT users when they are visiting websites that are out of the Flash whitelist.  Currently speaking, converting Flash content to Surface RT video seems to be the best idea. However, when the not fully bakes Windows RT becomes mature, those Flash websites get big chances to be included in the Flash whitelist if they are not hostile content based or poorly designed.

2 Methods to Play YouTube Video on PSP

Released in the second quarter of 2004, PSP remains to be the most influential products provided by Sony. With years of evolution, there are five generations of PSP so far, ranging from PSP 1000 to PS Vita. Of course, the latest generation of PSP can always provide users better gaming and entertaining experience. In fact, as a game console, PSP is able to take full advantages of state-of-art games from Sony; as a multimedia tool, PSP turns out to be a mini version computer which sports excellent display and built-in Wi-Fi. However, a pity thing for all PSP users is that they are not allowed to play YouTube video on PSP directly.

PSP and YouTube

Video entertainment plays an important role in people’s entertaining life and YouTube is the main source for video entertainment. As a consequence, the absence of YouTube support has made Wi-Fi connection a wasted function in PSP. Are there any methods to play YouTube video on PSP? In fact, users are trying hard to look for methods to view YouTube video on PSP and they are lucky enough to find some. Here two methods will be provided to help users play YouTube video on PSP.

Method One: Install GoTube on Sony PSP

By installing third-party apps, users are allowed to enjoy YouTube video on PSP. Even though Adobe Flash Player seems to be the best choice in theory, it fails to function because the Flash Player version on PSP is far less lower that the required version on YouTube. Currently speaking, an app named GoTube seems to be the only choice left for users. As a Java based program, GoTube provides users accesses to famous online websites like YouTube.

To make the application work, users only need to install GoTube under the folder of GAME. To choose the right YouTube video for viewing, click “Select” button to switch to YouTube, “X” button to type in the keyword and “O” button to play the YouTube movie on Sony PSP. However, GoTube is not an application that fits all generation of Sony PSP. Moreover, it may face the same fate of PSPTube who went outdated after ceasing to provide users latest update.

Method Two: Convert YouTube movie to PSP video

Adobe Released the First Package for Flash Player Flaws in 2013

Will the evolution of Adobe Flash Player be dominated by system flaws and security updates in 2013? Currently speaking, there is a great chance that vulnerabilities will once more set the main tunes for Adobe Flash Player in 2013. Just a few hours ago, Adobe has released the first package for Flash Player flaws in 2013 in an attempt to protect customers from being attacked by a system vulnerability identified as APSB13-01. This time, instead of providing detailed information about the system vulnerability, Adobe only describes it as something that may cause a crash or provide hackers the chance to control the computer.

According to the bug-fixing plan provided on the second Tuesday in 2013, Windows users using version 11.5.502.135 or below shall update to 11.5.502.146; Mac users with version 11.5.502.136 shall update to 11.5.502.146 and Linux users with version shall update to Moreover, even though Adobe Flash Player had retreated from Android market, this update has also offered promised package for Flash Player flaws to Android users. Of course, the package is theoretically patched to users who had installed Flash Player on Android devices before August 15, 2012. ICS device is advised to install Adobe Flash Player and device running system below android 4.0 to install Adobe Flash Player

First Update about Flash Player in 2013

Even though the first package for Flash Player flaws is patched for almost all platforms, it is not accessible for both Chrome users and IE 10 users. Given the fact the vulnerable Adobe Flash Player frequently brings troubles to system security, both web browsers are reluctant to add full support to the application. As a consequence, Adobe Flash Player is either sandboxed in Chrome or used as a plugin for IE 10. The only way for Chrome users and IE 10 users to update Adobe Flash Player is to wait for the update from Google and Microsoft respectively.   

What makes Adobe Flash Player so vulnerable and fragile? For one thing, Adobe Flash Player is a close application not that perfect in design. This provides a chance for hackers to take full advantage of its potential design flaws. For another, Adobe Flash Player is a popular cross-platform application that poses great influences on Internet fields like video streaming and online gaming. As a consequence, it has been the target for most hackers for a long time.

In fact, in the latest package for Adobe Flash Player flaws, Adobe also provides the priority ratings of the package for different platforms. The ratings are generally made in accordance with the popularity rankings of the operating systems for PC. Windows, with over 90% market share in PC market, gets top priority, followed by Macintosh with 7% market share. With the least market share, Linux only gets lowest priority ratings from Adobe in the three mainstream systems.

Top 4 Alternatives to Adobe Flash Player on Mac System

It is a known story that Steven Jobs hates Adobe Flash Player for its vulnerabilities and closeness. Therefore, he has decided to block the accesses to Adobe Flash Player in almost all iOS devices. Since Adobe Flash Player never makes its influence in mobile field, this move does little harm to iOS users. However, when it comes to computer field, even the Apple CEO dare not kill Adobe Flash Player immediately.
