I was reading up on some of the commentary surrounding Amazon’s release of an HTML5 reader, one of the best comes from Constellation’s Charles Brett: Amazon’s announcement of its Kindle Cloud Reader, based around HTML 5, is a wonder of irony. Apple has successfully been taking 30% of purchases made via anything bought through an [...]

IBM’s Software portfolio is insanely big these days, so its hard to know where to start. But some interesting things are afoot. As Cote says: “When it comes to pulling in innovation [...]

Apparently, mobile users prefer apps over the web. At least that’s Gowalla CEO Josh Williams’ view: “People love apps, but it drives a stake in the heart of the build-once-deploy-everywhere model, and makes the market really fragmented.” I’m not surprised.

HP has [...]
