Time to Take the Mobile Web Seriously

If you develop native applications, you live on the left-hand side of this image. You’re close to phone internals and you can use hardware APIs to take full advantage of sensors, location based services , GPS, camera and other components inside the phone. Of course, that also means that you have to port, test and maintain versions for all the platforms your customers use — but you can’t have everything.

Dual Cores—Is Anyone Really taking Advantage of Them?

I recently spoke with Kevin Kwang of ZD Net Asia to discuss the state of mobile multi-core processors.

Skate to Where the Puck is Going to Be: Three Reasons to Adopt WebGL

“I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.” Ice hockey great Wayne Gretzky said that, and that’s how I feel about the momentum behind WebGL.
