WordPress, iPad and HTML5 vs. Flash


interesting news from the bowels of WordPress, itself.

HTML5 is kicking Flash’s butt. that’s not the news, itself. but, it’s a great point.

with the launch of Apple’s iPad they have apparently seen the future of computing and it is touch. a recent blog post from them, to all of us, says nothing matches the visceral feel of navigating your digital world with your hands. the past four months they’ve been working closely with Onswipe to bring our iPad visitors a WordPress vision of what a blog can look like, re-imagined for a touch experience.

the WordPress iPad-optimized view is app-like in its functionality, but pure HTML5 goodness on the backend: it supports touch interactions, swiping, rotation, and many other features of the iPad. this is very similar to when they launched the smartphone-optimized WP-Touch integration in 2009 (now apparently responsible for over 150 million page views a month). it’s immediately available and active on the over 18 million blogs

as the iPad2 continues to blow-away all forecasts, while leaving any PC/ Android tablet hopes languishing with Adobe’s Flash in utter despair, we are now likely getting insight into the future winner in terms of interactivity and media on websites, and beyond.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
