Jeremy Clove Writes,

“I’m often asked “Will HTML5 replace Flash?” on the Web. The quick answer is no. However, there is a lot of nuance here and it’s helpful to make the distinction between two broad classes of content applications that are deployed in browsers.”

He further talks on where HTML5 is effective and where Flash is effective, very interesting read.

First, there are what I would call Web Productivity Apps. These kinds of applications require responsive, cross-platform, desktop like and highly interactive experiences. They often require seamless integration with existing web content and data. For several years, the Flash Platform was the best platform for creating these types of applications (per above). However, in the past several years, HTML+JavaScript (Ajax) and now HTML5 have created a highly compelling framework to build these applications, and for a large number of web productivity apps, the HTML5 approach will become the preferred model. The best examples are Google Apps, Salesforce.com, and even Microsoft’s forthcoming Office Online. There are also a class of Web Productivity Apps where Flash is the preferred runtime, especially those that involve working with and manipulating media such as images, audio and video. We, like many companies, are pragmatic and use both Flash and HTML as the technology needs require. Other examples of this include rich data visualization applications, where Flash has gained prominence inside of enterprises because of its rich data and visualization features.

The second broad class of applications are what I would call Rich Media Apps. These kinds of applications include largely consumer-facing, audience and media centric experiences. In particular, this includes online video, rich media advertising and marketing, and online games (casual games). All of these kinds of applications are highly focused on having a great and immersive experience that just works, and the creators of these apps are very focused on audience reach — anything that impedes 100% consumer acceptance is a significant concern. Here, Flash is dominant. The unique runtime characteristics of Flash, combined with its incredible reach, has led these types of apps to become highly dependent on Flash, and massive amounts of the broadband economy are dependent on it. It seems unlikely that HTML5 would be at all positioned to replace Flash for these categories, though it is clearly worth watching how consistent rich media runtimes find their way into the HTML5+ standard. Right now, it is a non starter.”

And his opinions are very interesting in this article. It sure has given me a bit of light on how the web content is shaping in future.

“Brian Herlihy cannot contain his excitement. He’s the man behind the Seacom consortium, which is building the new US600m undersea telecommunications cable that will connect SA with East Africa, India and Europe.

“Bandwidth uptake could be higher than our original forecasts, which would mean an even earlier return on investment,” Herlihy says. “It’s difficult to forecast as demand is incredibly elastic.”

Telkom’s new rival, Neotel, will land the Seacom cable in SA. In Kenya and Tanzania, where Seacom doesn’t have to partner a licensed operator, it is landing the cable itself. In Mozambique, CapiTel is its partner. “…

Will Microsoft Deliver The ‘Wow’ In Windows 7? By Kevin McLaughlin, ChannelWeb

Video and more info, James has written well about it.

Steve S mentioned that high on the list of Windows 7 priorities is Application and Device compatibility; a lot of the heavy lifting was done with Vista on the grounds of security – which has paid off massively – and that clears the tracks for the graceful landing of Windows 7 into the ecosystem. The proactive software houses that I am talking to are realising that developing on Vista and taking advantage of some of the features is a good bet due to what they’ve heard about platform similarities between Vista and Windows 7 too.

The costs of deploying a new operating system will be lower and more predicable ….”
