From My Perspective…

Smartphone Market – App Driven or Content Driven?

Can the Smartphone market sustain all the different platforms that currently exist or will the platforms be forced to converge? The most common view is that the platforms with the most applications will survive. Although, I tend to agree with that view, I think there will be another factor.

The Public Lynching of Flash

A public battle began between Apple and Adobe related to Flash support on the iPhone. What started with Apple putting terms in it’s Developer License Agreement that prohibit flash usage in iPhone apps, resulted in a top adobe developer telling Apple to “Screw off” and then a response by Mr. Jobs letting us know his thoughts on Flash. Ignoring the rumours that Apple is working on a Flash alternative themselves, I’d like to concentrate on the main points Mr. Jobs made and give you my thoughts.
