One of those was Google Gmail product manager Keith Coleman who, in the attached video, gives us a status update on where Gmail has been, where it's at, and where it's going (showing us a thing or two in the current user interface along the way).

Shrewd moves:  Will Adobe's 90 percent price drop on its media server wag the Flash dog?

In case you missed the episode of the Dan & David Show that my colleague Dan Farber and I recorded this past Tuesday (early, because Dan is off to Taipei), one of the news bits we discussed was Adobe's 90 percent price drop on its high-end Flash Media Server.
