Adobe Flash is still popular on the web. HTML5 will have to wait its turn.

web browsers still use flash

The web has an adoption problem.

The web has become the entertainment hub of digital content commerce. As consumer trends move towards streaming services like Hulu, Amazon Video, Netflix and many others – the need to allow video content to play on multiple devices has ushered in a race to produce more HTML 5 content. But why HTML 5?

“…HTML5 is everything that Flash set out to be and more, because it is an open-source technology built into browsers that has been tried and tested for many years…” via ComputerWeekly.com

This argument may hold true but here are 5 reason we still love Flash on the web…

  1. Technology takes time to roll out
  2. There’s no incentive to updgrade
  3. Countless websites depend on it
  4. It’s easy to develop and implement for
  5. Lazy Developers
Over time though, there’s no question that technology will eventually catch up and as new websites stop using Flash, as older websites slowly fade away, better alternatives to Flash will end up taking the throne. via neurogadget.net
Technology is always changing but the web still loves it’s Adobe Flash. Needless to say we do too.

You should be happy that Apple didn’t make a real television product.

Apple TV Logo with Color Bars

 

Television has captured our imaginations since the first television sets came out in the 1950′s. Since then America has been captivated by the allure of the humming blue hue of the living room television. Flash forward to the present and now you can watch TV on your phone, tablet and pretty much any portable device you can imagine.

“Apple today began promoting a new feature on the fourth-generation Apple TV called “Live Tune-In,” which lets users jump directly into the live streams of select apps usingSiri. The company is specifically promoting CBS, ESPN, and Disney XD as apps that support Live Tune-In, but it hasn’t disclosed yet how soon other apps that have live channel functionality will gain the new feature as well.” via Macrumors

So did Apple create the ultimate television with it’s newest Apple TV? It sure seems like it did. It’s apparent that no one has caught on that this is the platform Apple is betting on to dominate the next generation of TV.

According to that report, “people familiar with the matter” have confirmed that Apple did have a small team working on an Apple TV set a few years ago, but the team was disbanded more than a year ago. via Macworld.com

Television is a hard business to break into and the fact that Apple had a team working on developing features that could distinguish them from them competition says how close they were to a “traditional” television experience. Do they have a potential gold mine with a streaming box like the 4th generation Apple TV?

It may be too soon to tell.
