First offspring: Adobe + Macromedia

As I have mentioned before, the marriage of Macromedia and Adobe will result in very interesting offspring, and here is the most important I think: Project Apollo.

According to this article, the idea is to move Flash beyond the browser, so basically allowing the development of web applications that can be used offline outside of a browser. It is interesting that they are positioning PDF not just as a document format, but as a portable application container.

To stay updated on the development of the Apollo project, I recommend you follow Mike Chambers blog, he is the manager of the project, and besides, has very interesting things in his blog.
