Opinion: Of Love Hearts and Lego bricks

With all the back and forth between Apple and Adobe and developers, I’m feeling like the real issues have gotten lost amongst the extreme views from either side. In the end, this whole fiasco has been boiled down to Flash vs HTML5 and that kind of simplification isn’t getting anyone anywhere – it just causes… Read the Rest

Opinion: Flash, HTML5, Browsers vs. The User

I was reading through some Flash vs. HTML5 related stories and one of the more recent was Mashable’s poll asking that now tired question: HTML5 or Flash?
