Adobe & Macromedia

This news is specially interesting for the designers - graphic, web whatever! - as the two giants Adobe & Macromedia have merged together. Well, not merged. Adobe has bought Macromedia for over 3 billion US Dollars. That's right, that's a 'b'.

Adobe has also announced that the although the Macromedia products such as the famous Macromedia Flash etc will be maintained and built upon, the Macromedia brand itself will eventually be phased out. Now we be buying Adobe Flash!

Network busy?

Yesterday, Mobilink's network crashed (yes, again). Although Telenor has launched and Warid is due to offer its services this year, Mobilink is the largest cellular service provider, and one cannot expect all Mobilink users to switch over to other cellular service providers. However, PTA's just announced it plans to suspend Mobilink's license within 30 days and impose a Rs. 350 million fine on the company if they doesnt respond to a show-cause notice (source: Dawn). While Mobilink has added another dialing code (0301), it hasn't made much of a difference, and the crash yesterday is only proof of that. One can only hope (in vain methinks) that this threat makes Mobilink do something about their utterly horrendous service.
