Here’s why the Apps-vs-HTML5 debate matters:

  • Distribution: Native apps are distributed through app stores and markets controlled by the owners of the platforms. HTML5 is distributed through the rules of the open web: the link economy.
  • Monetization: Native apps come with one-click purchase options built into mobile platforms. HTML5 apps will tend to be monetized more through advertising, because payments will be less user-friendly.
  • Platform power and network effects: Developers have to conform with Apple’s rules. Apple’s market share, meanwhile, creates network effects and lock-in. If and when developers can build excelle! nt iPhone and iPad functionality on the web using HTML5, developers can cut Apple out of the loop. This will reduce the network effects of Apple’s platform.
  • Functionality: Right now, native apps can do a lot more than HTML5 apps. HTML5 apps will get better, but not as fast as some HTML5 advocates think.

Why Facebook Defriended HTML5 — For Now (FB)

diMany think HTML5, a new technology that allows developers to build rich web-based apps that run on any device via a standard web browser, will save the mobile web.

However, in August, Facebook sent shock waves through the HTML5 world when it released the latest update of its iOS app. In this update, Facebook abandoned its HTML5-heavy app for one built from scratch with Apple’s iOS SDK.

In a new report from BI Intelligence, we explain why Facebook decided to abandon HTML5 for the time being, analyze the state of HTML5 and native apps, and detail why it may take even longer for HTML5 to win out than previously thought.

Zuckerberg Rambling About Nothing for 30 Minutes Earned Facebook $7 BillionDo you want to know what power is? Power is going up on a stage, yammering about very little for half an hour, and boom, a few days later your company is worth nearly $7 BILLION more than it was a few days ago.

On Tuesday, Zuck took the stage at geeky strokefest TechCrunch Disrupt. He talked about ads, manically about the company’s high morale, the (obvious) disappointment of the IPO, his commitment to connecting the world, his regrets about HTML5, the importance of mobile, (obvious) denials of a Facebook Phone, and other non-statements. It was poised hot air.

“Whatever,” said people with money, and then proceeded to throw great wads of cash in the 28-year-old CEO’s direction. At the close of Friday’s trading Facebook’s value was up roughly 15 percent from where it was on Tuesday, bringing the stock’s price to $22 per share. Yes, that’s still long ways off from its (crazy) IPO price of $38 per share, but let’s put is this way: Zuck netted his company almost four million dollars per second that he spoke.

If I could do that I’d never shut up. Zuck should try releasing a crooning jazz album just to see what happens. [Reuters]

Microsoft teams up with shopping search engine for HTML5 digital catalogs

Microsoft teams up with shopping search engine for HTML5 digital catalogs

Dead tree product catalogs — dated. Fortunate, then, at least for Mother Earth, that Microsoft’s unveiled the results of its team-up with retail-focused search engine TheFind, several web-based Glimpse catalogs, offering the visual pizazz of a retail magazine without the carbon hangover. Injecting Redmond’s HTML5 know-how into the shopping hub’s catalog and social apps, it distills those functions into the single site. Stores including Brooks Brothers and Lands’ End have already offered up their collections in the web store, but Techcrunch reckons the venture needs a little more work. The images appear to be little too compressed and blurred in the new format, while the detail view directs users to social network sharing rather than a product’s description. But with Microsoft already offering the HTML5 juice that powers the online app for free, someone else might improve on the company’s groundwork.

Mozilla caves, will support H.264 to avoid ‘irrelevance’

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2012/03/19/mozilla-caves-will-support-h-264-to-avoid-irrelevance/

FirefoxIt looks like Mozilla is ready to throw in the towel in its battle against the patent-laden H.264 video codec. Over the last week or so, the software foundation has struggled publicly with whether or not to support the MPEG-LA-owned format. Now several of Firefox’s biggest players have all come out in support of the move and all that’s left is to actually bake the appropriate code into the browser. Both chairman Mitchell Baker and CTO Brendan Eich embraced the decision this weekend, however begrudgingly, in blog posts. Both admit that success in the mobile space requires them to abandon the quest to make WebM the standard for streaming video in HTML5. Even with Google’s support, at least on the desktop, VP8 was never able to seriously threaten the entrenched and battery-friendly (not to mention, Apple and Microsoft backed) H.264. For more details check out the source links.

Netflix reveals Android app tests that keep it running on ‘around 1000’ devices daily

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2012/03/15/netflix-android-app-testing-process/

In a quick peek behind the curtain at what life can be like as an Android developer, Netflix’s Tech Blog has posted details of the testing process for each iteration of its app. According to Netflix’s own stats, after being initially released for just a handful of phones nearly a year ago it now streams to “almost around 1,000” different devices daily. The situation of building one app for different hardware, software (including CM7 and CM9), screen sizes and and other variations like hardware or software decoding presents many challenges, but the team has filtered down to 14 devices (10 phones, 4 tablets) that give maximum coverage for their daily tests. Add in an HTML5 frontend for the native video video player, and suddenly the staggered rollout across devices starts to make more sense. Hit the source link for more info on how it all gets put together and shaken down through both automated and human testing, while Apple fans can wait for a similar breakdown of the iOS process that’s on the way.

Android’s Marketshare Collapses For The First Time Ever

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-android-ios-2012-1


Android’s share of the the U.S. smartphone market collapsed for the first time ever in November and October as consumers bought up the iPhone 4S. Now that Apple sells the iPhone on Verizon, Sprint and AT&T, it actually closed the gap on Android.

The big question for Apple: Is this is a short term jolt driven by the iPhone 4S which came out in October, or is it a long term trend?

Adobe and Greystripe partner for ads that convert Flash to HTML5

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/08/adobe-and-greystripe-partner-for-ads-that-convert-flash-to-html5/

When you complain about Apple’s products lacking Flash support, we figure you’re talking about games and video, but web developers have to make a living too, right? That’s why Greystripe and Adobe are working together to bring ads to iDevices all around, with an intriguing technology that might one day enable the real reasons we want Flash as well. Like the Smokescreen demo we saw last week, Greystripe can reportedly transcode the banned content to HTML5 on the fly, and it’s apparently impressive enough that Adobe’s signed on to create an interactive, crossplatform ad solution (also on Android and Java devices) priced and market specifically to rival Apple’s own. With Apple’s distinguished record as keeper of the walled garden, we’ll see how well that goes, but we’re definitely interested in other possibilities for the company’s code. Full press release after the break.
