Adobe Solution for Apple iPad

Adobe Systems has finally announced a new version of its digital publishing suite for individuals, the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite.  This enables freelance designers and small design firms to publish interactive content created with Adobe InDesign CS5.5 software on the Apple iPad.  For $395 per application, Adobe’s Single Edition provides an affordable and flexible end-to-end workflow for designers to publish a single-issue application for sale or distribution through the Apple App Store.  A single edition allows users to publish single-issue content such as a brochure, highly-visual book, annual report or personal design portfolio as an application for the iPad. As an extension of the Digital Publishing Suite line, Single Edition enables users to leverage Creative Suite 5.5 workflows to create an application for the iPad. This gives freelance designers access to many of the same creative and publishing technologies that leading publishers, such as Condé Nast, have used to reinvent their publications for delivery on tablet devices.  The Digital Publishing Suite family which now includes Single Edition is used to publish content beyond traditional magazines and newspapers. With more than 700 titles published with the Enterprise and Professional Editions of Digital Publishing Suite currently in market, organizations are quickly seeing the value of content on tablet devices and are expanding the range of published materials.

Sales tools, brand and customer engagement materials, merchandising deliverables, employee communications and corporate collateral published to tablets drives greater business value for organizations and opens new revenue opportunities. Combined with the power of Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 software, Digital Publishing Suite lets designers work with a familiar toolset while maintaining complete control over the design, publishing and monetization of tablet apps.

“Working with Adobe InDesign and Digital Publishing Suite allowed us to turn our print catalog into a rich, interactive digital magazine without disrupting our existing workflow,” said Gary Higginbotham, director of marketing at Alan Mascord Design Associates, a Portland, Oregon-based residential design firm, in a statement. “With Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, Single Edition, it’s even simpler for a small business to reach out to customers in exciting, affordable ways.”

Setting up VPN On Your iPad/iPhone

If you are interested in setting up a Cisco IPSec VPN connection on your iPad, I have detailed some instructions on doing so.

  1. On the iPad itself, go to Settings > General > Network >VPN > Add VPN Configuration.
  2. On the tabs listed, select the IPSec tab from the connection types. Note that  you see a Cisco logo present here.
  3. Now you can enter you information as provided by your network admin:
    • Description: “Work VPN” (this can be whatever you would like)
    • Server: vpn.mydomain.com (ask your IT administrator if you are not sure)
    • Account: Your network login account
    • Password: Your network login password
    • Group Name: myvpn (ask network admin
    • Secret: ******* (once again ask your network admin)

4. Now you should be able to click save up in the corner and we are almost there.

5. You should now be able to go into Settings > General > Network > VPN  and slide the VPN switch to on. Once connected, you can use your favorite RDP client and remote your network PCs.

 

Adding Exchange Account to iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch

  1. To add an Exchange account to your Mobile device, go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account > Microsoft Exchange.
  2. Then, enter your email address, domain, username, password, and a description. The description just describes the account, for example “Brett’s Account.” If you do not know your domain, ask your network administrator.
  3. Your mobile device will now try and retrieve the connection settings by itself using Autodiscovery. Most of the time this will fail and you will be prompted with the following screen. When you are, you need to enter the mail servers address (e.g. mail.mydomain.com). Again if you do not know this, contact your network administrator.
  4. The next screen allows you to choose which items you would like to synchronize. Most of the time you want to leave the default which is Mail, Contacts, and Calendars. To adjust additional settings, you need to go back into Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
