Flash Player EOL Announcements

阿逗比终于宣布了 Flash Player 退役计划,真是感天动地。这件事虽然有协调好各大浏览器厂商同步发布公告,但是我不禁注意到每家厂商公告的内容有微妙的区别……

Adobe: Flash & The Future of Interactive Content

Adobe has long played a leadership role in advancing interactivity and creative content – from video, to games and more – on the web. Where we’ve seen a need to push content and interactivity forward, we’ve innovated to meet those needs. Where a format didn’t exist, we invented one – such as with Flash and Shockwave.

“你们不要忘了 Flash 的历史意义!”

Adobe will also remain at the forefront of leading the development of new web standards and actively participate in their advancement.

“我现在仍然是业界先锋!(严肃脸”

And we’ll continue to provide best in class animation and video tools such as Animate CC, the premier web animation tool for developing HTML5 content, and Premiere Pro CC.

“Animate CC 是最棒的 HTML5 工具哦,绝对不是 repurposed + rebranded Flash 哦。(努力严肃脸”

Mozilla: Firefox Roadmap for Flash End-of-Life

This transition guide​, published through MDN Web Docs, provides documentation and links to open web APIs, libraries, and frameworks to help make updating to the web platform a great experience.

“我们一直心系开发者。”

Apple/WebKit: Adobe Announces Flash Distribution and Updates to End

“标题就告诉你们:这件事情到来,我内心毫无怀念之情,完全是例行公事。”

Apple users have been experiencing the web without Flash for some time. iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch never supported Flash. For the Mac, the transition from Flash began in 2010 when Flash was no longer pre-installed.

“我早就拒绝 Flash 了,多有先见之明~(骄傲脸”

咳咳咳……”

M$: The End of an Era – Next Steps for Adobe Flash

This timeline is consistent across browsers, including Google, Mozilla, and Apple.

“万年不进行技术换代的企业用户们,业界一起定下了这样的退役日期,绝对不能怪我哦。”

Google: Saying goodbye to Flash in Chrome

Three years ago, 80 percent of desktop Chrome users visited a site with Flash each day. Today usage is only 17 percent and continues to decline.

“我们用数据说话,反正我们收集的 metrics 多。”

iOS Wallet/Passbook 的用处

之前在中国就经常听到 Passbook 没用的论调,好像在中国是挺没用的。今天跟美国同学聊天说到 iOS 8.3 beta Passbook 界面变化结果被问 “You are actually using Passbook?”,我才认识到原来不了解 Passbook 用处的大有人在。上几个 slideshow 说说我熟悉的使用姿势。

交通

登机牌

OT: aka 登機證(想起在 W Taipei 的时候想打印登机牌然后人家听不懂,反而听懂了 boarding pass)
在支持手机登机牌的航点,用 Passbook 大概是最方便的了吧:离线存储但可连线更新、根据地理位置或时间提示在锁屏上,等等……因此,全球航空公司都在逐渐加入 Passbook 支持。

其他 Pass

航空会员卡主要用来记卡号。此外还有 Amtrak。

Hospitality

相对登机牌来说,酒店的各类 pass 似乎用处相对小。但是用来记住房间号、给司机报地址时还是十分有用的。

喜达屋

喜达屋集团在 Hospitality 业界一直站着科技前沿,前段时间更推出 SPG Keyless

会员卡

会员卡 pass 除了记卡号和 track 积分之外用处不大。

Stay Pass

喜达屋的 stay pass 设计十分用心,入住前显示酒店地址和入住日期时常,入住过程中右上角会显示房间号,入住后会鼓励提供评价。

其他集团

相比起来,IHG 的我都不想说什么了。此外还有 Hilton。

支付

星巴克

单说星巴克是因为星巴克大概是最早成功推广单一公司移动储值卡的吧。Passbook 推出之后,Starbucks Card 不再需要打开 app 使用。我唯一的问题是:中国大陆什么时候引进?

Apple

之前 Apple 自己利用 Passbook 一直比较捉急。

Apple Pay

直到 Apple Pay 出现。Apple Pay 真是好用啊,请务必早日支持中国的银行…… 另一角度说,Apple 能从 Apple Pay 赚取好多钱啊……

商户

很多商户也利用 Passbook 提供电子会员卡、NFC 会员卡积分及兑换、优惠券等等。
