Adobe is teaming up with the heavy hitters of the tech industry to kill Flash, but it will take at least another three years. Apple technology doesn’t live forever either: the company has officially consigned the iPod nano and iPod shuffle to the dustbin of tech history. Also this week, Adam Engst joined the Command Control Power podcast to discuss the TidBITS Content Network, and Josh Centers takes a look at the promise of ARKit in iOS 11. Finally, we have the results from our reader survey of Mac Markdown editors — the outcome may surprise you! Notable software releases this week include GraphicConverter 10.4.3, EagleFiler 1.8, and PDFpen and PDFpenPro 9.1.
