Adobe making online document services play

While Buzzword and Share sound similar, Larson pointed out the dissimilarities.
"The reasons to use the services are different," he said. Buzzword is for creating documents and features a rich versioning system to track changes, he said. Share is a SaaS-based offering for getting a document out to other people when a user is done with it, he said. More critically, it is for very large files too cumbersome to e-mail, such as a CAD file or a collection of different files, Larson said.
Share also offers automated updating for files sent to groups of persons, according to Larson. General availability of Share is planned for the first half of next year. Users can sign up for access here.
Adobe at the Max 2007 conference also will announce broadcaster support for its planned Adobe Media Player, which is a desktop video aggregator.
"It's an application that allows you to identify your favorite Internet TV shows, and it will automatically track those TV shows and download them," said Deeje Cooley, Adobe Media Player product manager.
Broadcasters like CBS, PBS, and Yahoo are climbing aboard, Adobe said. Adobe Media Player is scheduled for general release in the first quarter of 2008 and is built upon Adobe AIR.
