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. Heck, I prefer apps too. But the irony is that Apple has but a bullet […]

Dear Adobe: Apple has started the anti-Flash/Flex snowball rolling, and it is getting steadily bigger.

Earlier this week Adobe [client] announced support for Flash on the iPhone. Kind of.
The story has been covered pretty extensively by both Adobe haters and fanboys.
What do I have to add at this point? Not a great deal. But one thing struck me pretty strongly. Having argued in the past that Adobe could open source […]
