Apple I've been meaning to write this for some time, and for all the time I delayed the more poignant the point I wanted to make started to become as new news came out further solidifying my angle. When I begun writing this article the iPad had not yet been revealed, iPhone OS 4 was not on the map and Apple had not yet purchased Lala. You've probably just noticed that all of these events in fact point toward Apple embracing the web more and in this article I will point out why this is not the case because I believe Apple's agenda here is similar to something we've already seen in recent history.

People act as if Google is some super friendly open source company! It's not, it's open to an extent because it's in it's business interests.

This person speaks the truth. In about 5 years or so, Google will be the new 'Most Evil' company... I'm callin' it right here. That doesn't mean we have to boycott them or anything.. I mean, as long as they haven't fallen to the dark side yet, then they're still ok.

In regard to HTML5, as a power user, I'm not so sure I want all of my apps running in a web browser, for a multitude of reasons. OTOH, we'll see what the landscape looks like in 10-20 years, but as of now, native apps are going to be faster and have more functionality than their web equivalents 98% of the time.
