Space Shot of the Day: 100,000 Stars
If you’re running on Chrome browser, check out Google’s latest Experiment project that visualizes the precise location of at least 100,000 stars in our Milky Way galaxy, using various imagery and data pulled from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA). For your frame of reference, there are approximately 200 to 400 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy.
Pretty awesome, but only works in Chrome.
Earlier this year, Gartner predicted that widespread adoption of HTML5 was still 5-10 years away. Kendo UI’s survey indicates that it’s much quicker than that — in fact, adoption seems to be happening immediately with 51% of respondents saying that HTML5 is important to their job right away, with 31% saying within the next 12 months. (via HTML5 use is real: majority of developers find it important for their jobs in next 12 month [Study] - The Next Web)
Said every survey ever the past 5 years…
Mark Zuckerberg, speaking at TechCrunch Disrupt
This Branch on HTML5 vs. native (in light of the new Facebook iOS app) is full of good stuff.
After months of “HTML5 or die” talk, Facebook sure seems to be putting resources back into native app development…
There’s a lot to pore over with Facebook’s new iPad app and the new HTML5 mobile app platform. But I think Matt Rosoff of Business Insider has keyed in on the most important thing that’s currently being drowned in spin:
Facebook won’t let developers use Facebook Credits on the iPhone or iPad.
Obviously, in the native app, Facebook would have to give a 30% cut to Apple for any purchases made. But what’s important is how much of the app is actually HTML5-based. Facebook is crippling their own HTML5 work here. Fascinating.
Well, either Facebook doesn’t want to pay Apple the 30% cut of all in-app sales. Or Apple doesn’t want Facebook circumventing their own in-app system. Or both.
As BI notes, this has likely been a big reason for the hold up of the Facebook iPad app — which such looks to be the exact same one I found and leaked leaked months ago. The one that was feature-complete in May.
You won’t hear a peep on this stuff on the record from either side, but there’s a ton going on behind the scenes here.
Apple to Kobo: Good luck with that.
The TechCrunch blog previously reported on Facebook’s HTML5 efforts.
Further, it’s not like I posted a fucking screenshot of the Credits HTML5 integration or anything over a month ago.
They’re relying on three anonymous sources for their story when I saw the thing and reported on it myself a month ago.
