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.

HTML5 will be good for interfaces and ads but Flash will be around for video. If not Flash then some other plug-in.

NBC and Time Warner are the latest publishers to show a lack of interest in HTML5.

A bit problem with HTML5 Video is that it was designed without considering the needs of content producers.

Or rather HTML5 respects the wishes and intelligence of web users. Yeah, I can see how that might be a problem for mercantilists.

The vast majority of web users just want to watch videos and don't care about how it works.

Content producers have more to offer them than HTML5 advocates.
