      Adobe AIR puts companies on desktops

      By AMANDA FEHD,
      Associated Press Writer

      EBay Inc.'s customers don't need to open a Web browser to search the site or auction an item anymore.

      After a quick download, the online auctioneer's users can click the company's logo on their desktop and launch an application that will allow them to do their business directly — no browser required.

      EBay is one of several companies, including Nasdaq Stock Market Inc., Time Warner Inc.'s AOL, Nickelodeon and Salesforce.com Inc., that have created downloadable, desktop versions of their Web sites using software developed by Adobe Systems Inc.

      Adobe is launching the application, called AIR, on Monday. Adobe says AIR will allow any company with a Web site to inhabit a permanent spot on people's desktops.

      It also reduces the wait time for downloading images and data, because the desktop is constantly updated while the computer is online.

      Adobe says AIR runs on any operating system. It's a more powerful version of widgets, the customizable little Web pullouts often provided by third parties like Google Inc.

      The AIR application removes any kind of go-between, giving companies a direct, constant and versatile link to the consumer, said Adrian Ludwig, a spokesman for Adobe.

      "The browser was in the way and the widget, in some instances, was in the way," Ludwig said. "It's the willingness to let the brand of the person providing the application to take front and center."

      I wonder how this can be used for the movement.

And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular - but one must take it simply because it is right."

      Greetings Im The Truth!

      It can be used for Action Alerts, It can be used via our tags. It can be used specifically for issues dealing with our political prisoners. Since they mentioned auctions, we know that deals with a lot of different items at once so I think that is where we probably will get the most benefit. We have so much issues, causes and topics we deal with on a daily basis, we definitely can find uses for it.

      It would be a powerful tool for us if we can get it customized or a similar version for our needs. What we can do is maybe see if there is any generic version on the FREE side of software (lol) that maybe we can test first and depending on how that goes we can look into maybe purchasing something more dependable

      Let's do some research.

      Peace!
