"Windows 8 will include a version of Internet Explorer 10 that uses Microsoft's "Metro" touch interface, and this new-age browser will not allow plugins – at all. The move is yet another blow to Adobe Flash, which is famously banned from Apple's iPhone and iPad."
Interesting demonstration of rebuilding a Guardian interactive originally built in Flash using only CSS.
"The New York Times has introduced its long-delayed Beta620, a public beta testing site where web surfers can experiment with new products that could eventually take root on NYTimes.com."
"The 2010 elections provided a chance to develop a custom version of our election results site, specifically for the iPad. In building it, we learned a lot about designing for a new class of computing devices, as well as how to leverage several HTML5 technologies."
"Today our first news project for iPad went online and we are proud like kids. Technically, it’s 'just'an HTML5 optimization, but it has been a demanding design process to get to the point of simplicity where it’s at right now."
HTML is changing significantly for the first time in the best part of a decade, and you'll need to learn to at least recognise, if not use, some new tags. ... Several new HTML5 tags are there to enhance the way that content is understood by machines, or is rendered by browsers and devices. All of which will ultimately result in a better user experience for humans."
"A collaboration between TWF, Google, and SI for the Google I/O 2010 Keynote Presentation. Narrated by SI Editor, Terry McDonell."
"The only real differentiation between the Wired application and a multimedia CD-ROM is the delivery mechanism ... what we’ve really ended up with is a glorified slide show. ... I actually think it’s a huge step backwards and I think the wrong people are working on the problem – just like the wrong people were working on the web problem back in the day. ... By the time an article is published in Time, I’ve read six or seven different takes on the same story on the web well before it hits the newsstands. I don’t think that’s a unique or new insight. But now you want me to download 500MB a month just so some print designer can have pixel perfect layouts with custom fonts?"
"Today at Google I/O , Sports Illustrated editor Terry McDonell took the stage to show off a version of the magazine in HTML5. It looked pretty much like SI‘s tablet prototype he showed me last December, except it isn’t an app. It’s all in the browser, with great fonts, big photos, videos, drag-and-drop capability, search, and all the rest."
"With the launch of the Apple iPad ... many web video publishers are already getting ready for the device by rolling out new video pages that will support HTML5 web video delivery ... The problem is that HTML5 is still in its infancy, and as a result heavily lags behind Adobe Flash for features that many video publishers already take for granted."
