Apple Petty Apple is petty. Amazon, Kobo, and others have changed their applications to conform to Apple's App Store rules, and if there's one word that describes the situation these booksellers are in, it's petty. Still, it's leading to good things: Kobo has announced it's going to bypass the App Store by writing an HTML5 e-reader for iOS (and thus, for other HTML5-capable mobile devices).

There is no such thing as a HTML5 compatible device. Not iOS, not anything else. HTML5 is not finished, and no browser is even close to implementing even half of it.

Sure.. okay, but the word HTML5 is still annoyingly overused. I predict a lot of confusion from the misuse of the concept.
