Now available is my presentation from Tuesday’s meeting, The History of HTML5. The idea of this was actually born out of research into the battle over Flash between Apple and Adobe. It turns out that if you look at the overall timeline of HTML and what the browsers have gone through in regard to competition and standards bodies, you’d have a better understanding as to why Apple is acting as they are.
The presentation is available here. It’s one of my more colorful ones. Enjoy!
According to ComputerWorld, Apple has made even further moves to prevent Flash from appearing on the iPhone or iPad:
So the iPad hits the stores tomorrow and horror or horrors – it doesn’t support Flash. As an AJAX developer, I’m actually rather happy about this, and from an entertainment point of view, am enjoying the over-the-top barbs that Steve Jobs has thrown at Adobe (not to mention Google). But in all of the uproar over there not being Flash on the iPhone or iPad… has anyone even noticed that there is no Silverlight or JavaFX, not to mention Java? Where’s the love! Not that there hasn’t been enough opinions on why there’s no plugins on the iPhone or iPad, but I do have a few thoughts on the subject.
