Apple's HTML5 tech demos

What you see if you try to run Apple's tech demos in a browser other than Safari
Apple showcases seven tech demos to promote HTML5

Apple is continuing is full assault on Adobe's Flash technology. The company's latest efforts center around seven tech demos which showcase that HTML5 can perform many of the same tasks as Adobe Flash.

Apple prefaces the tech demos by stating:

Every new Apple mobile device and every new Mac — along with the latest version of Apple’s Safari web browser — supports web standards including HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. These web standards are open, reliable, highly secure, and efficient. They allow web designers and developers to create advanced graphics, typography, animations, and transitions. Standards aren’t add-ons to the web. They are the web. And you can start using them today.

The tech demos include video and audio playback, photo sideshows (which are often done with Flash on news websites), transitional effects for pictures, a 360 degree view of an iPod touch, and a virtual reality tour of the flagship NYC Apple Store.

Interestingly, even though Apple is promoting an open web with HTML5 and declares that Adobe Flash doesn't always present a consistent or stable experience for users, Apple's own tech demos won't even work unless you download Safari and install it on your computer.

Safari comes pre-installed on every Mac, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad -- hence the demos work on these devices -- but Apple has left other HTML5-capable browsers like Google Chrome out of the tech demo fun (see image on the right).

That Google private wifi data collecting scandal:

Australian Communications Minister Stephen Conroy has dubbed the incident possibly "the largest privacy breach in history across Western democracies".

I how Americans start demanding some privacy soon, otherwise Google will continue using its location in the US like scam artists use the Ukraine.

That should have read:

I hope Americans start demanding some privacy soon, otherwise Google will continue using its location in the US like scam artists use the Ukraine. Google is currently ignoring European and Antipodean data privacy acts and disrespecting the national sovereignty of several countries by claiming that private data illegally gained, illegally spirited out of those countries, and now residing in California is no longer those nations' property and will not be returned.

I know I wouldn't even consider getting a new phone contract w/o the Australian Communication Minister's ok. I mean Australia is the land of internet freedom right? And Politician quotes are always factual and on point.

If you information is not PRIVATE because you are too lazy to change the settings, then don't expect someone NOT to peek at it. I mean, you can't complain that your house got burgled when you took all the doors off of it and replaced them with curtains that say " Stay Out -- Please"
