Adobe has released the beta versions of the upcoming Flash Player 10.1 and AIR 2.0 software.

Flash Player 10.1

Developers can test their content to ensure new features function as expected, existing content plays back correctly, and there are no compatibility issues. Consumers can try the beta release of Flash Player 10.1 to preview hardware acceleration of video on supported Windows PCs and x86-based netbooks.

AIR 2.0

Adobe AIR 2 is in the early stages of development which means it contains bugs, and not all features are fully implemented. This software is for evaluation use only, and should not be used for any mission-critical work.

A couple of days ago, a co-worker had to separate 50-100 PDF files according to a specific serial number that appeared on each one of them. He thought he had to go through all of them, however I just came to the rescue, and explained that he can accomplish the task in a much easier way.

So I thought that other people might have the same need, and although it is a trivial task, I decided to make a blog post about it.

Start Adobe Reader (I am using version 9.0 for the screenshots).
From the main menu, go to Edit -> Search.


On the search dialog that has just opened up, select the “All PDF Documents in” option.
Browse for the folder that contains the PDF files that have to be searched.
Adobe Reader is automatically looking in the selected folder’s subfolders for PDF files.

Type your search keywords, and check some of the extra options if required.


Simply click on the Search button and wait for the results.
Results are ordered by PDF file, and you can even go directly to the specific pages that contain the search terms.

If you are often dealing with multiple document files, text, PDF, Office files etc., it might be a good idea to take a look at Google Desktop. Google Desktop is going through all of your documents, and makes an index out of them. Thus at any time you can perform a full document search on your Desktop, and instantly get results back.

We are experiencing the Web 2.0 effect every day in our computing life.
Traditional desktop applications, like Word or Excel, are now available in alternative Web formats, e.g. Google Docs.
E-mail, instant messaging, and other popular online activities, seem to be more accessible from our Web browser than ever.

Adobe makes our Web 2.0 life even better, by offering an online version of the most famous imaging tool, Photoshop.
The Web Photoshop is called “Adobe Photoshop Express”, and is currently marked as a free beta version.
Photoshop Express is entirely Flash-based, and seems to be responding fast to every action.

You can either sign-up for the free service and upload your images, or “test drive” it with some of the existing photos.
