    Hi all,

    The article makes a valid point...the way things are now...it's preventing firms from bringing newer and perhaps better tech to the public. We are starting to see app firms and periodicals fight back at Apple. The Financial Times for example is refusing to give Apple it's 30% cut and therefore have designed a very small app downloaded at their site which is supposed to work on all platforms...this brings you to their web site which uses HTML 5...thus circumventing the app store completely.

    I'm sure that FT isn't the only one who wants to and/or is going to do the same b/c:

    1. It is giving too much $ & power to Apple.


    2. a "mini" app is very easy to write on all platforms and thus leaving the bulk of the work done on the web...it is much less customization for each platform.

    3. Platform creators/smartphone makers are also delighted as a new platform won't automatically be doomed.

    Please use the link to read the balance of this article. Please note: The article continues onto a second page!

    take care,

    The App Model Must Die!

    The App Model Must Die! - Technorati Technology

    Back in the day, we use to go to retail stores to purchase software for our computers. The software was stored on floppies, later a CD, and packaged in retail boxes that contained printed materials. This continued well into the 2000's while the promise of software and applications being delivered 'online' via the Internet was always out there once broadband bandwidth had reached the masses. Not only would this software be delivered online, it would be stored and executed on remote servers that end users would access via their browsers. This would foster in a new age of platform agnostic software that would run using universally adopted standards.

    This won't change until consumer perceptions change, until consumers stop looking at 6,000 apps as a weakness against 500,000 apps, when the mobile browsers are comparable.

    Hi all,

    Or until Apple gets broken up by the courts and/or ordered to change it's ways....there are a number of lawsuits against Apple that are working their way up the court system in a number of states....

    Take care,

    Jay
