Podcasts Is it that we desire what is sold to us, or is it that OEMs will sell whatever it is they want and we'll buy it? Like it or not, we are being forced into a brave new world, which has no certainty that it will even last yet. I am of course talking about tablets. Come this holiday season (wait, isn't the whole year just a long string of commercial holidays?), you won't be able to browse an isle at a computer store without being assaulted by tablets. Big ones, small ones, Android ones, HP ones, RIM ones, Apple ones. Asides some discussion on GNOME3, we delve into this uncertain territory that has yet to play all its cards. Why is Google withholding the Honeycomb source, and what could be going on behind closed doors? What has Sony's recent actions have to do with "ownership", and what has this meant to GeoHot? Is RIM capable of delivering a product that will deliver their promises, and is Google between a rock and a hard place with Android and Chrome OS? Find it all, here, on the new* OSNews Podcast.

HTML5 apps and companies

Member since:

I've been listing to panel discussions at conferences to companies who create or have apps. They don't want to have one app per phone, device, whatever. They don't like to wait weeks for appstores approvals.

Some companies do want to have an appstore as a markerting thing: A an extra place device users can go to find 'apps', that is the only part they like.

So they prefer a HTML5 app solution with an appstore.

So that was very encouraging.
