Apple's HTML5 Showcase Isn't HTML5, Blocks Other Browsers

| If you go to Apple's HTML5 Showcase page
| and click on any of the demonstrations
| using, say, Google's Chrome, you'll be
| confronted with a pop-up stating you need
| Safari to see the demo at work. However,
| if you compare Safari's and Chrome's
| support for HTML5, you'll see that Chrome
| has far better support.
Only Apple can do open standards, apparently

| And now, for more from Apple’s “we’re more

Christopher Blizzard from Mozilla complains about it too:

Steve Jobs: the iPad came before the iPhone, Flash still sucks
Steve Jobs' Big Fat Lies?

| "You can't sell, if you can't lie!" Many
| businessmen follow this mantra. Steve Jobs
| is no exception. He created a misleading
| myth around Flash that it doesn't work
| well on Apple mobile devices thus they
| were banning Flash.
| The truth was something else, far from
| what Jobs wrote in his some 2000 words
| blog. Flash is more than a rich-content
| player, it is a platform. It will enable
| developers and publishers to run many
| applications on Mac mobile devices without
| money being pumped through Jobs' vaults.
| Jobs doesn't want that. He wants a tight
| control on his devices thus he banned
| WebKit was not 'innovated' or created by

Steve Jobs: “We are not allowing apps that create their own desktops”

| The iPad App Store is going pretty well, with
| 8000 apps already accepted and developers
| quite happy with the sales results. But what
| about an application that’s been approved and
| then pulled from the App Store for some
| strange reason? That’s what happened to My
| Frame, and that’s why the developers decided
| to email Steve Jobs and ask.
| It turns out that Apple, as usual, retains
| ultimate control on the kind of software that
| can be approved or not, but in a way that is
| not very clear to developers and people who’d
| like to develop applications. My Frame is
| (was) a photo frame app with some additional
| features, like music controls, weather info,
| twitter feeds and birthday reminders in the
| shape of “overlays” to the photos you have to
| manually pick.
| We know that Apple doesn’t approve widget-
| like applications, but could you call My
| Frame a widget app? I guess that if it was
| approved in the first place, this is the kind
| of app that sits in between, and that’s
| exactly the place where Apple retains
| ultimate control. In between.
