Acrobat Press – March 2009

Please forgive any missing images or edits from our blog archives.

Some more recent press about Adobe Acrobat which I thought you all may find interesting.

  • March 6 – The Paper-less Practice of Law in BC – David Bilinsky has a blog called Thoughtful Legal Management, in addition to being a staff lawyer for the Law Society of British Columbia and the Editor-in-Chief of Law Practice Magazine. He posted about the benefits of transitioning to a “paperless” law practice by replacing paper-based processes with digital ones. And he recommends using Acrobat instead of mailing documents to clients, writing it would “save trees, postage and handling costs.”
  • March 14 – Build a Better Portfolio with Adobe Acrobat – Taz Tally of Layers Magazine has a great article on how to build a PDF Portfolio in Acrobat 9.
  • March 15 – Software Review: Adobe Master Collection – T. Michael Testi of BlogCritics Magazine has done a thorough review of the software found in the Adobe Creative Suite 4 (CS4) Master Collection. His series is up to 11 reviews so far. In his Acrobat 9 review, he mentions several key features in Acrobat 9 Pro and Pro Extended, and concludes by stating Acrobat 9 is a “must have upgrade.” “If you need to present information to clients in a way that will wow them, if you want to embed video, audio, and other rich media files into a PDF, then Adobe Acrobat Pro Extended is the only way to go. It takes the PDF to such a new level, that I very highly recommend it as a must have upgrade.”
  • March 16 – ESPN’s Ultimate Tourney Guide – Finally, for all you March Madness fans, ESPN and Adobe have created a PDF file that showcases some of the new capabilities of Acrobat 9, including its native support for Flash video. The interactive PDF file will help enable hoops enthusiasts to enhance their experience with a portable copy of their bracket. Through the PDF, they can also learn more via dynamic content from about the tournament teams, the latest news, and ESPN polls. Kurt Foss of AcrobatUsers.Com has written a good summary here. Joel Geraci, Acrobat’s Developer Evangelist, has a detailed 3-part series on how the Guide was constructed. And BrandWeek highlights some of the business and branding aspects of the partnership.

I’ll take “Fantastic Software” for 200, Alex.

Please forgive any missing images or edits from our blog archives.

One of the categories on Jeopardy last night was “Also Found at a Circus” and it had answers like “clownfish”, “three rings” and “safety net”.


Here was the $600 question:


It’s pretty exciting to be the answer to a Jeopardy question.
