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.
So there is a lot of talk about how the future of the Smartphone technology and market is going to pan out. There are many thoughts on the subject and I’ll let you browse the net to find the popular ones. I’ll be honest I haven’t read them all mostly because I like to formulate my own opinions…
