Google is kicking Apple’s nuts repeatedly…. #googleio #io2010

Google I/O Keynote day 1 had 25,000 concurrent live viewers online. Flash just doesn’t work, crashes browsers and kills kittens.

Annnd there goes another 20 minutes of my life to Robot Unicorn Attack… though I did get up to 3 dolphins this time!

Vic Gundotra at @googleio: “It turns out that on the Internet, people use Flash”

Apparently VP8 is: not as good as h264, a patent minefield and a crappy codebase. http://bit.ly/bc1mcS

If someone emphasizes “open” in something that is open already it means that this someone prepares for “closed”, “locked” or “censored”.

Just realized articles about “H.264 vs Flash” make me feel the same way “Silverlight vs AIR” did. Not quite “Bicycle vs Fish”, but close.

grape juice flowing nicely. I think the grape juice has had it though, tastes a bit like wine.

It’d be great if wi-fi was open and standards-based. Then all those connectivity problems would go away. Oh, wait.
-parkerkrhoyt (May 19, 2010)
Google IO shows why Flash is important – to innovate features that later can be standardized and mainstream. All good.
-bryngfors (May 19, 2010)
I get it, #GoogleIO shows off all the tech that makes #Flash obsolete, then asks #Adobe to come on & talk about supporting the legacy crap!

If you spend more time planning code than coding, you may be happier in a foreign, remote location doing something boring.

An API should only allow one way to do something, and that should be enough.

RT@codinghorror I suspect some of you Mac users are not Thinking Different™ enough. Think DIFFERENTER, damn you!

but notice that for all apple’s slickness, it only ever got around 10% of the market. android has now surpassed iphone in numbers.
bit101 (May 17, 2010)
lots of android vs. iphone posts today. pc vs. mac all over again. make the hardware and control the software, it’s easy to be consistent.

I find it kind of funny that no one names Flash when celebrating YouTube’s 5 years birthday. I think Flash was a big reason for its success.

for the first time in a few years i am glad i get payed in dollars and not in euros

I think auteur theory spills over into electronics, such as how the news makes it sound like Steve Jobs built the iPad himself. Yeah right.
-benheck (May 17, 2010)
…though Steve Jobs beat me for the “Most Influential Person in Flash” #FATC award – should have Kanye’d him.

If you stick your head far enough up your ass can you blow yourself from the inside? Apparently yes.

Woot! Just won my first Star Craft II game.

Having a 32GB CF card in my SLR is awesome. Never have to worry about running out of space!

Just got word that Facebook has lifted the restriction on Feathers Visage (http://feathersvisage.com). Your apps should start working again.

Apple, the company that got us excited about copy and paste. Now we can’t wait for them to give us folders!

NEWSFLASH: Flash Player is no more secure than the browser it’s running in. Flash content has *more* security restrictions than HTML/JS.
