After Twenty Years of Flash, Adobe Kills the Name ( 119

An anonymous reader writes: From January 2016, Adobe Flash will be renamed to 'Adobe Animate CC', killing one of the most unfortunate names in web security as the company pushes the product further and further to HTML5 output. Adobe's release about the update, which will form part of the annual Creative Cloud upgrade, states that a third of all material output from the program is now HTML5. The transitional HTML5 Adobe animation program Edge Animate will be replaced by the renamed Flash product.

This generation seems to have a lot of network social media functionality and the like. For example, XBone has a "snap" feature that allows you to split screen the game and one of the other apps.

I read the freaking summary and it mentioned Israeli soldiers executing people, so I'm not sure how that's not the topic of the OP. Maybe you are asserting that the summary is inaccurate and doesn't match the article? If that's your argument it would make more sense if you would assert that explicitly so we can follow.

Or possibly even pure electric depending on whether we can get the range. Milk floats - which have a fairly similar life - have been mainly electric for decades.

We either need batteries that can last all day, or that can be replaced quickly as part of the daily schedule, but those are technically achievable.
