Apple’s innovating more than ever these days, and it’s an exciting time to be in the consumer electronics business. They’re pushing other companies to be better, and we’re reaping the rewards everywhere we look. Apple’s continuing the push with HTML5 today, posting a job listing for a Creative Technology Manager, who will spearhead new HTML5-based content for Apple’s website. Clearly they believe in the technology, as they’ve already been rolling out HTML5-based sections of their website.
Back in early September, Apple rolled out a new trailers page that let users narrow down the closest theatres based on zip codes, and it’s Flash free. Is this a case of Apple pulling the cart instead of putting the cart in front of the horse? If we’re going to see HTML5 rollout successfully, and more quickly, we’re going to need some major corporate backing, and Apple’s once again leading the way here, showing people just what can be done without Flash. It’s a smart move on their part, and they’re putting their money where their mouth is this time. Apple’s anti-Flash, and they’re determined to show you why.
