Adobe Flash now available for Apple iPhone 4, iOS 4, iPad

Beyond sporadic antenna-flavoured mishaps and AT&T exclusivity, there’s really not much to complain about when it comes to Apple’s iPhone. But it doesn’t run Adobe Flash, we hear you cry. Oh, but it does run Adobe Flash, we reply, or hadn’t you heard?
Moreover, an annoyed Steve Jobs is probably grinding his back teeth right about now after Comex, a renowned member of the hacker community, publicly revealed the ‘Frash’ iOS solution, which nimbly circumvents Apple’s staunch refusal to embrace Flash on the iPhone.
According to Frash’s creator, the hack runs through iOS on the Safari browser and work with the new iPhone 4 smartphone, as well as its predecessor the iPhone 3GS and also Apple’s iPad tablet computer.
Of course, using Frash isn’t as easy as quickly popping into the App Store. Firstly, anyone looking to put Frash through its paces will need to be using a jail-broken iPhone, which instantly narrows compatibility. And the current available build (version 0.02) is extremely early and will be prone to buggy performance.
While the following video demonstration clearly shows Frash is able to handle simple Flash-based tasks through the likes of undemanding web destinations such as Homestar Runner and Engadget, it cannot yet process the kind of complex content you’d expect to find on YouTube


However, that’s a stumbling block of progression that could be conquered with upcoming iterations, if, of course, Apple doesn’t figure out some way to squash Frash access in the meantime.
Unwilling to work with Adobe to bring the latest version of Flash to its hugely popular product line, Apple has instead turned its online video focus to HTML5, a wide-ranging Flash alternative that’s quickly gathering momentum amongst web developers.

The Synology DS112J is a new NAS server intended for small business and personal home uses. For those who are unfamiliar with NAS concept. According to Wikipedia, A NAS unit is a computer connected to a network that provides only file-based data storage services to other devices on the network. Although it may technically be possible to run other software on a NAS unit, it is not designed to be a general purpose server. For example, NAS units usually do not have a keyboard or display, and are controlled and configured over the network, often using a browser.
