Internet & Networking Earlier this week, Apple launched a HTML5 Showcase page, displaying several uses for HTML5 and related technologies. However, it turns out that Apple is using trickery to block out browsers other than Safari, with the end result that browsers with better support for web standards than Safari can't access the demos.

And you say you're not a fanboy?

You're just too easily dragged into the pr-machine, which is fine, you belong to their target audience, they reached you, so tada, they're good.

But let's just put aside how and what html5 capabilities they use in those demos (which don't seem much, but anyway). Instead take this: "[Macs and do.] all support the capabilities of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript [,..] But soon other modern browsers will take advantage of these same web standards"

First, since they don't say how much of html5, css3 and js they support, they suggest they support everything. The insertion of the "all" word in that sentence on the left side of "support" is a nice move btw (keeping "all", "support" and "capabilities" close enough to work their magic). Second, they say other browsers "will" have support, suggesting they currecntly don't have that support. All in all, I don't have anything against them doing some pr, but I don't enjoy seeing people falling for it - even if they seem to have knowledgeable pr guys around.
