Hype 2.5: A love letter to the animated — and responsive! — web

The big news with Tumult's Hype's 2.5 update is that their layouts have become flexible, meaning they can now integrate with responsive designs and scale to suit different browser sizes and orientations. You can also now export animations as video files... or animated GIFs. Yup, you can now use Hype animations to troll email and message boards. French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, and Spanish and now all localized and supported. Hype Reflect 1.1, redesigned for iOS 7, has also been updated to let you preview all the new features on your iPhone.

Hype 2.0 for Mac and Hype Reflect for iOS: HTML5 Interactive design tools come of age!

When Steve Jobs wrote Thoughts on Flash, and predicted a grim end to the then-reigning king of internet interactivity, I agreed with him. And I was working, in part, as a Flash animator at the time, doing dynamic web elements for corporate sites. It was a patch, something that fixed a gap in functionality, but something that, as the gap narrowed, needed to be replaced. Video, at least the DRM-free kind, was easy to see a Flash-free future for. The kind of stuff I was doing, however, the stuff that used timelines and transformations, was harder to see. Then came tools like Hype. And now, Hype 2.0 for Mac and its companion app, Hype Reflect for iOS.

Apple holding iPad pre-orders, reassuring iPad reservations

Apple has shipped iPad pre-orders and regardless of whether you chose expedited or regular old delivery, it should get to your door on Saturday, April 3 (if your area offers weekend deliveries). To make sure it doesn't get there any earlier, Apple is using every trick in their playbook so don't be nervous if you see "holds" or "exceptions" on your delivery status. They don't want any "accidental" pre-releases hitting the streets (and webs).

CEOs Fiddle

There have been a lot of snarky comments about Apple in the press lately, usually from big media companies or other smartphone competitors. There are so many CEOs fiddling while Apple burns down their little walled cities, there's enough of them for an orchestra. Or at least a hoedown.

Voice Memos?

A savvy forum user over at MacRumors found some interesting new dialog box messages inside the new version of iTunes. These are probably the highlights:

"4320.082" = "The iPhone “^1” contains new voice memos. Would you like to move these voice memos to your iTunes library?";

"4320.073" = "Enabling the iPhone for disk use requires manually ejecting the iPhone before each disconnect, even when automatically syncing music.";

Google Phone: Android

Google has announced Android, an open source Linux operating system designed to be very customizable by programmers. This isn't the GPhone, the long-rumored Google Phone. Google is not making any of the actual phones, just the software. Android joins the ranks of myriad Linux development attempts: the new pro-sumer Palm OS, Access Linux Platform, Trolltech's QTopia, OpenMoko, and others in Asia that are unknown to me.
