You know we’ll never be able to have 64-bit browsers until Flash goes 64-bit, so Adobe needs to get on the ball and stop holding us all back. Everyone is finally ditching IE6, so it’s time to get Flash updated too. Although just removing Flash altogether and converting everything to HTML 5 would be fine with me too.

Starting May 25, Phase One is handling customer support and future development for Expression Media. Microsoft will continue to offer support for Expression Media retail customers for the next 90 days, officials said. Another thing that’s unusual is that Microsoft is still stating they’re making competitor products to Adobe’s photography offerings.
