Keep in mind Flash Player 10.1 is relatively new. If Flash had been included with the original iPhone, you would have hated it. The new version, however, kicks ass. Would love to see some hacked iPhone Flash benchmarks to fill in the missing pieces on the above graph. If the iOS can’t render a little ball, HTML5 is going to be a hard sell for iDevices.

quote: HTML5 is extremely limited, it's has hardly changed over the years either. You wont get much more than a bouncing ball, fading, and slides out of it and even then you'll have to use another language like JS to do that.
quote: I'm sure you have seen showcases of HTML5 actually doing more than a bouncing ball, fading and slid
quote: Its always possible to write code that runs poorly on any platform.
quote: The poor code is iOS
quote: I would down-rate you further if I could.
quote: I have just offered up some additional facts for people to consider.
quote: Now just because one USELESS example happens to against this TREND, doesn't mean anything.
quote: I guess to somebody as ignorant as to believe that Steve Jobs has a valid point, it wouldn't matter
quote: The code was poor
quote: it is perfect even in it's imperfection
quote: Apple sucks!!!
quote: Off topic? Apple sucking is the topic of every post otherwise its down rated
quote: HTC must make better products since their stock is worth more
quote: Not according to the people who count - its customers :)
quote: True, they prefer to take it in the ass.
quote: ...if you are an Apple customer, chances are that counting is not your strong suit...or math in general.
quote: You do realize that third link is talking about the LONG gone G4 Macs right and it's also an article from 2004. The student one from the second link can be explained pretty easy since Apple all but gives away iPods and Macs to students so of course starving students will pick the free or cheap stuff :P The first one, well the article it self says Apple commands a cult-like following, the iSheep as many call them, and as all know cults are such a logical thing and prove something is great. MS has to try to prove to people their upgrade is worth it, since MS users won't blindly follow, they need proof, Apple cultists just buy what Jobs says is magical. Good try but you need to find better articles.

quote: Yeah, but we keep getting forcefed by the media/bloggers/spares that both the iPhone 4 and the iPad are magical, since Apple calls it that.Vomit.
quote: The problem appears to be limited to apps downloaded from the Android Market.
quote: Finally, Mr. Black tested Flash 10.1 running on Nexus One (in-browser). The results were a silky-smooth 57 fps, near the target of 60 fps. What's more, after running the test for 10 minutes, the Flash animation consumed only half the battery that running the equivalent HTML5 animation did.
quote: That definitely hurts Jobs' entire (red herring) argument.
quote: I was about to post something similar. Honestly, most tech sites are just scouring for anything that mentions Apple. Apple articles are insanely popular.
