Almost one month past since Black Friday and Christmas Holiday, most of good deals have already gone, but some stores still provide good deals, maybe the price increased a little bit, but still good deals.

Here is a SD card deal, I personally think the price is good currently compare with other retail sellers. The Microsoft Store, are providing the deal of Kingston 32GB Micro SDHC Class 10 + SD Adapter for $14.99 CAD, it is the lowest price in Canada local place.

You could find out similar Kingston 32GB SD card with adapter on Amazon.ca which is cheaper around $1 CAD, but those sellers are in Asia such as Taiwan, you will have to wait the item shipped from Taiwan. Also, compared with Microsoft, I am sure I would choose Microsoft Store.

Why Flash Video Does Not Work on Chrome ?

One day I found the flash video did not work on my web browser, the Chrome. My Chrome is newest version since I always follow the updating from Google.

In the newer Chrome version (after Aug, 2015), Google stopped all plugins based on NPAPI (Netscape Plugin API), which compared with PPAPI (Pepper Plugin API);  they said “To make browsing with Chrome safer, faster, and more stable”. NPAPI plugins including Silverlight, Java, and Unity etc. I am sure Chrome still supports Flash, and also still use Flash plugin, so Adobe Flash plugin must be a kind of PPAPI plugin;

Normally, you do not need to manually install or update the Flash plugin, because when you update your Chrome browser, the flash plugin will be updated together. What I guess is that Pepper project was created by Google itself, so the Flash plugin based on PPAPI should be actually a Google project, which could say Chrome Flash plugin is a part of Chrome;

So why the Flash plugin seems not work ?

1: I simply clean the Chrome cache first, but still not work;
