Cool ancient script is cool.
I tried to decode it as english letters at first, but it didn't work, so I thought I should just ask.

That's going to be a big-ass phone. I doubt that will ever happen.

If it's VoIP, you should be able to do that on the iPad via Wi-Fi or 3G network.

Right, but can it make Skype calls over Wi-Fi to cellular numbers using only your Skype plan? To my knowledge the iPhone can't officially do this, though that may have changed. I seem to remember it requiring the use of both your Skype minutes and your AT&T minutes.

Turns out it's not "true" multi-tasking. Their implementation is solid for most use cases though. One of our apps would benefit from multi-tasking and Apple's implementation doesn't help our app at all.

Flash is never gonna happen unless Google and Apple come to some kind of deal over advertising. And that looks like it will never happen now that Apple has launched iAd.

Flash doesn't need to happen with HTML5, which 4.0 seems to support based on the Almighty Job's keynote.

Google doesn't really have anything to do with it. It is more Steve Job's hate of Adobe and Flash (read: EGO.)

And what the fuck is this? iAd? NO fucking thanks.

Get ready for more ads on your iPhone/iPad....

Steve Jobs: Apple may serve 1 billion ads a day to iPhone

Posted by Brier Dudley

Multitasking on the iPhone and iPad is a nice addition to the platform, but I think the jaw-dropper at Apple's news event this morning was the mobile ad platform called iAd that Steve Jobs unveiled.

Both additions were expected but the ambition and scope of iAd was surprising.

It's a huge potential market for the company if users accept the advertising that may soon be woven deeply into their Apple devices.

"The average user spends over 30 minutes every day using apps on their phone," Jobs said, according to Engadget's live blog at the event. "If we said we wanted to put an ad up every 3 minutes, that's 10 ads per device per day. That would be 1 billion ad opportunities per day."

Users may benefit from more free apps supported by ads. Maybe that will offset any resentment about immersive ads on a mobile device for which they pay monthly fees to use, and temper app price escalation that came with the iPad.

Apple's going to take 40 percent of the revenue from iAds that it's going to sell and host. In response to a question, Jobs said developers can use other ad systems besides iAd, according to the Wall Street Journal's coverage of the event.

I wonder how it's going to work to have multiple systems feeding ads into the apps. Will other ad systems have the same access the new ad serving and display capabilities Apple's building into the operating system without paying the 40 percent?

Flash is just a plugin. It's not a true standard nor is it the open web. It's a step backwards for the sake of some interactivity and multimedia capabilities that were necessary when browsers didn't work the same. Times are changing and flash is slowly becoming a niche as far as it's usefulness. Meaning, you can do most of what flash is capable of without using flash.

All the major browsers work practically the same and they are all pushing for standards including HTML5. Youtube is beta testing it's HTML5 video player and many sites are slowly dumping flash because it doesn't work on the iPhone.

Believe it or not, Apple not supporting flash is one of the best things that has happened to the web. The web should be built and run on open/free standards, not with a plugin that's owned by a company who is just out to make a profit. I for one, can't wait for flash to die on the web and users who don't develop websites for a living won't even notice that it's gone.

Are you implying that the only benefit of flash is for advertising banners?

Isnt this the feature they denied for so long saying "you dont need multitasking on the iphone!"

You have to love that its only for the latest 3gs phones as well. Everyone else has to pay up to apple again for a new phone first if you dont have one.
