Subject Re: Apache Flex suggestion - dumping SWF support in favor of HTML5 - listen to Steve
Date Sun, 05 Feb 2012 02:00:45 GMT
This post is a brillant example of Apple's brain washing power! If you
listen to Steve Jobs then you contribute to the spreading of a disease
that will do nothing but cripple the industry. Apple does not push
HTML5 because it is better, they push it because it does not exists
and can easily be patented and crippled (see W3C public statement
saying it is very sad when they have to go after one of their own
member for patent abuse, see also HTML5 bugs related to audio / video
in Safari marked "not to be fixed" by executive order, that is Apple
execs ordering Safari engineers not to fix audio/video bug with HTML5
on Safari to protect iOS.
