We recently spoke with Sairam Rangachari, senior vice president of products and innovation at optionsXpress and he told us about their goal to develop an entirely new type of trading platform.
With the Adobe Flash Platform, optionsXpress created Xtend, an all-inclusive trading console that employs the same award-winning, back-end technology as the optionsXpress web-based platform. Xtend—which investors can access easily from virtually any computer operating system and digital device—offers traders convenient access to active stock, options, and futures information for improved decision making and trading outcomes. Xtend is a dynamic, downloadable desktop app widget that offers a wide range of unique features and expert-quality research tools. Learn more here.
On Saturday Oct. 30 from 12:00-3:00pm ET Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and fans from across the country of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” will gather on the National Mall in Washington DC for the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, an event Stewart says is “for the people who’ve been too busy to go to rallies — not so much the Silent Majority as the Busy Majority.”
Interested in tuning in, but can’t make it to the National Mall? The Rally and March will be streamed live on Comedy Central using the Adobe Flash Platform. Viewers can also catch the action live on their Android 2.2 “froyo” enabled device, using Flash Player 10.1.
Learn more about live streaming with the Flash Platform here and Flash Player 10.1 for Android here.
Smartphones like the HTC Evo and the HTC Desire have started to receive Flash Player 10.1 as part of the Android 2.2 “Froyo” update. And, today, Motorola and Verizon announced the new Droid 2. It’s great to see one of the first smartphones to come pre-installed with the completely redesigned Flash Player 10.1. Users can experience the full web with millions of web sites the way they were meant to be seen. Flash Player 10.1 on the Droid 2 is hardware accelerated and gives users seamless access to rich apps and other Flash content inside the browser like games, animations, rich Internet apps, e-commerce, music, video, audio, and much more. Check out droiddoes.com for more information and watch the demo video below of Flash running on the Droid 2. Many more smartphones like the HTC Incredible, the Samsung Galaxy S, Motorola Milestone, Droid X and others will support Flash Player 10.1 in the following weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
