A Much Tastier Sandwich

Remember back when John Gruber called iPhone Web Apps a shit sandwich. And then Apple fanboys dragged Apple into native applications while balkanizing the nacent mobile software world?

Have you heard that today, WebKit is so popular other browser vendors are contemplating support -webkit CSS prefixes.

Now today, Apple announces:

  1. Mac is obsolete. All their devices are different form factors of iOS (I called this last April)
  2. OS X apps distributed via the App Store will need to comply with additional restrictions

So wait: build native apps and be ever restricted by Apple or build web apps and work across devices, across platforms, and even have non-Webkit browsers compatibility?

Leads me to believe that, as much as Apple doesn’t have the internet in it’s DNA, they’d still prefer – after all these years – that developers build web apps.

Opting Out of Gmail

“I want to continue using the Google tools I love without the risk of loosing my online identity by doing something I didn’t know was prohibited (I am still not sure why that Google Adsense account is gone), without the work involved in understanding the entire Google ecosystem to manage my privacy, and without constant distraction by the latest gadgets Google came up with. Dropping Gmail is how I achieve this.” – Neubertify
