    Completely off topic:

    labs.macromedia.com - that's comedy. It's so sad how many tech firms (including Microsoft) are copying Google now. What's probably worst is they didn't do anything that incredibly novel by showcasing their work-in-progress stuff, other companies have been doing it for a long while.

    But it's nice that Google are helping to de-corporatise large IT firms, away from marketing guff.

    And flex gets my thumbs down. I use to code actionscript/flash for  a while and I found the whole hosted control idea poor. They are re-inventing the wheel in my view.

    You can't use your back button or bookmark a part in a flash movie either which is mighty annoying.
