Adobe Flash on the Road to Nowhere

This Wednesday was probably the first day on the (potentially long) path to Adobe Flash decline: the most popular video site out there – YouTube – started offering videos in Flash-less mode for browsers which support HTML 5 and h.264 video codec. This means that today the option is available for Chrome and Safari. Then at some point they will likely add the Ogg codec and support Firefox, or help Firefox get native h.264 codec support. And then IE9 ships and all latest browsers will play videos natively. Flash will no longer be required for video, and why would anyone want it then? The whole story of Flash in retrospect is going to be an interesting one. Adobe had 95-98% penetration in PC market for years and could not expand its adoption beyond video. They tried: kept improving the tools, added offline, even tried open-sourcing it, and getting to the mobile market –... (more)

It now stocks 500,000 iPhone apps and 140,000 iPad-specific apps.

What Is Consumerization of IT?

If you are unfamiliar with the term “Consumerization of IT” or CoIT then you may think that it means “IT has become a consumer product”. But that is not interpretation which is generally accepted. Traditionally, adoption of Information Technology used to start with defense & government followed by the business enterprise. Those technologies used to be sold in low volume and high cost. Only over a period of time cost used to come down making it affordable for the individual consumer to adopt such technologies. Now we see that the trend seem to have reversed. Many of the latest technologies get adopted by the individual consumer first to be followed by business enterprise, defense and government. This trend – this change in direction of technology absorption – is called Consumerization of IT. Where did the Term originate? Douglas Neal and John Taylor seem to have use... (more)

Windows Azure Recipe: Mobile Cloud Computing

A while back, mashups were all the rage. The idea was to compose solutions that provided aggregation and integration across applications and services to make information more available, useful, and personal. Mashups ushered in the era of Web 2.0 in all it’s socially connected goodness. They taught us that to be successful, we needed to add web service APIs to our web applications. Web and client based mashups met with great success and have evolved even further with the introduction of the internet connected smartphone. Nothing is more available, useful, or personal than our smartphones. The current generation of cloud connected mobile computing mashups allow our mobilized workforces to receive, process, and react to information from disparate sources faster than ever before. Drivers Integration Reach Time to market Solution Here’s a sketch of a prototypical mobile co... (more)

Book Review: Learning iPad Programming Second Edition

As I started to read this book my plan was to skim through the first 6 chapters and then really dig in starting with chapter 7 App Design. I figured with a year of iOS programming under my belt the first few chapters would just be regurgitating a bunch of stuff I already knew. To some degree I was correct, but I did not count on the book's awesome layout and the authors' great writing style to keep pulling me into the chapter's topics, making this a much longer read than I had planned on. By the time I reached chapter 4 I had given up on skimming, since I wasn't really skimming anyway. I took 4 books on a weeklong dive trip, and found myself still reading this book when the plane bringing us home landed. The book is massive, it covers a ton of topics, and it covers them in depth. The book is broken down into three parts. Part I Getting Started includes seven introduct... (more)

Apple iPad Impressive, but Kindle Not Dead Yet

Apple’s iPad announcement is big news. It’s a robust tablet form factor that is a half-inch thick and weighs 1.5 pounds, with a 9.7-inch capacitive touchscreen IPS LCD display that supports 1024x768 VGA video. The ebook implementation is everything one would expect. The application can be downloaded from the App Store and the content is managed by the “iTunes” platform, so it seamlessly integrates e-book with the other popular personal content. All iBooks are stored on your Bookshelf. As you would expect, all books are displayed on a sharp, color screen with many personalization options. However, just because iPad has launched and is an impressive device, In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com) cautions individuals who are quick to write off the e-reader segment. The market, which includes e-readers like the Amazon Kindle and the Sony E-Reader Daily Edition, has firmly est... (more)

iPad on Ulitzer - Steve Jobs' Misunderstood iPad

iPad on Ulitzer For all the controversy around the recently introduced Apple iPad, one thing is certain. This is but one in a long series of devices which will continue to be introduced to the market as part of a computing revolution. The advent of these technologies combined with demographic shifts and global ism will fundamentally change everything about our world.

When one rea... (more)
