Adobe has released a new version of it’s Flash Player, required for playing videos and flash contents on web pages, and it comes with a new feature known as the Stage Video Playback. The new version number is 10.2.152.26 and this an upgrade from the old 10.1 version, which used to rely a lot on the processor performance for full HD 1080p playback of content on the web.
Adobe states that this new versions Stage Video Playback API will help reduce the load from the processor and try to handle the playback of HD videos more efficiently.
Using Flash Player 10.2 with Stage Video hardware acceleration, we’ve tested a Mac Mini released two years ago and a low-powered GPU-enabled Windows netbook playing smooth full HD 1080p video using less than 8% of the CPU; more powerful computers use even less.
Other features in Flash Player 10.2 include multi-tasking capabilities where-in you can view fullscreen videos on a single monitor and work on the other(multi-display setup), ability for designers and developers to add custom mouse cursors, sub-pixel text rendering enhancements for better readability and support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 web browser.
What are you waiting for? Go grab the Flash Player 10.2 from here. It’s available for all Windows, Mac and Linux based systems.

Valentine Day is just round the corner and iDevices App developers keeping in-view the famous slogan” There is an App for that” have developed an App that is a comprehensive guide for Valentine’s Day.Valentine 2011 is the name of the app developed by Fizzle and it pretty much acts a complete package for your Valentine day activities. The App is equipped with loads of features that you can use to impress your beloved.
Valentine 2011 has features like tips, poem generators, recipes, ability to send flowers and information regarding Valentine day. Although you can find everything that this app offers via Google searches but what this app does is that it takes all these valentine related things and combine them in one place.
Poem Generator in Valentine 2011 App
Some of the features that Valentine 2011 offers are pretty unique like the poem generator. This exclusive feature let users enter any name and then it generates a poem accordingly. This feature simply embeds the name you enter in a poem, wherever it belongs in the context of poem.
Valentine Recipe Portion
Another cool feature in Valentine 2011 is the recipe portion, it is very convenient and contains some really good Valentine Day recipes with details like instructions and list of ingredients.
Songs & Valentine Information
But the parts of the App that I like the most are “Songs” and the “Information”. The “Songs” section boasts loads of artists that are arranged according to genres. You can also view YouTube video of a particular song within the Songs section. The “information” section contains random facts about Valentine Day gathered from around the world.
Other notable features in this app are “Call my Valentine” and “Send Flowers”, using “Call my Valentine” feature you can call your valentine right from the Home screen of the App. Using Send Flower options you can send flowers to your beloved but this particular section of the app is just a web browser that guides you to a third-party flower sending service.
On the whole, I think developers have cluttered this app with lot of features out of which some are not that useful. The recipes and Songs section are pretty useful but I guess an update before the Valentine day will further improve its usability. App can be downloaded from App store for $0.99
