Apple wants to hand internet control to private monopoly – Really trying our patents: Nero sues MPEG-LA for anti-trust | TechEye.

A follow up to my earlier post about Apples potential problems if they go after VP8 codec and Google

Advertisements

I can’t help but be concerned that Apple is setting itself up for some bad press akin to SCO attacking Linux. Apple has been championing open source and standards with HTML5 and attacking flash, but if they sue Google over vp8 video codec they will look like hypocrites who are only about their bottom line instead of truly caring about an open web. I sit in between Apple and Google. I love my MacBook, iPhone, AppleTV, but I use Gmail, picassa, and love to use Google’s Chrome browser. I would like to see the two companies compete peacefully and work together on other projects the way their engineers have been working on HTML5. I can kinda see how Jobs would be upset over Android, but this is America and it’s built on competition. Did Google overstep it’s trust with Apple with it’s executive on Apples board? Yes. But Americans want choices, if Android gives Apple the impetance to make iPhone better faster well I’m all for it. Cause as much as I love my iPhone I want more functionality from it and fast. I also want Googles goggles app on my phone. I’m hopeful that Apples purchase of Siri will improve iPhones functionality, but the iPhone is capable of so much more.

Everyone has been going on about how we should use CSS3 more and all of the possibilities and flexibility that come with it, but that we should still consider IE6 and other troubling browsers.

Because I will not shut up about CSS3, this time I’ve decided to show you a little bit of the multi-column layout module. This module allows you to layout the content of an element in multiple columns, like flowing text on a newspaper-type layout.

Adhering to standards and using public tools is incredibly important in that doing so allows for tools and information to evolve beyond its original vision or use. I have previously posted many links from top design sites that espouse the importance of this behavior and also lots of howtos and walkthroughs.

The other great thing about using standards is that you can stand on the shoulders of giants. Not having to reinvent the wheel gives designers and creatives the time to invent new things and ideas. Work smarter, not harder. Dont we have enough to worry about and battle with daily without having to increase our stress and frustration?

In this post we present a new speedy way of writing HTML code using CSS-like selector syntax — a handy set of tools for high-speed HTML and CSS coding. It was developed by our author Sergey Chikuyonok and released for Smashing Magazine and its readers.How much time do you spend writing HTML code: all of those tags, attributes, quotes, braces, etc. You have it easier if your editor of choice has code-completion capabilities, but you still do a lot of typing.We had the same problem in JavaScript world when we wanted to access a specific element on a Web page. We had to write a lot of code, which became really hard to support and reuse. And then JavaScript frameworks came along, which introduced CSS selector engines. Now, you can use simple CSS expressions to access DOM elements, which is pretty cool.
