Jason Snell writes of something newish that Adobe and Google are doing with Chromebooks:</p> <blockquote><p> This week I got a demo of Photoshop running inside Chrome, and while it was really interesting, some of my assumptions were faulty. It turns out that when Adobe says Photoshop is a “streaming app,” they mean it—it’s much more like screen sharing than native software. Photoshop runs remotely on a Windows-based server, and video of the app’s interface streams to the Chrome browser. </p></blockquote> <p>via <a href=”http://sixcolors.com/post/2014/11/adobe-streams-photoshop-to-chromebooks/”>Six Colors: Adobe streams Photoshop to Chromebooks</a>.</p> Adobeclient-servercomputersgoogletechthin-clienthttps://devilgate.org/blog/2014/11/21/thin/Fri, 21 Nov 2014 17:18:57 GMT
