A bit more MS Paint and Flash is finally (will be) dead

Microsoft responded to the negative reaction to deprecating Paint.  The news is that Paint will become a downloadable app in the Store.  Cue the sighs of relief from those into computer nostalgia.

The other interesting news in Tech is the Adobe announcement that the company will finally end support for Flash on December 31, 2020.  Adobe will stop distribution of the Flash player at that point.  Developers are encouraged to migrate to open formats such as HTML5, Web GL, and WebAssembly.  There is a good analysis for what this all means for consumers and developers at the CNET news site. —Mark
