iPad's Lack of Flash and Openness a Blow to Publishers

January 28, 2010


Last year I called lack of Flash support on the iPhone the real Apple Tax. This is still the case and since this post, TMC had to spend significant development resources to create an iPhone specific site which converts our video from Flash to H.264.

The iPad will not have Flash support either - or multitasking for that matter. Today, Silicon Valley Insider explains that this new Apple tablet touted as a publishing savior will actually hurt media companies because their ads which are currently written in Flash need to be rewritten via the iPad SDK.

Smart Buildings remind me of the CTI/VoIP Opportunity

January 15, 2010

For telecom veterans who were active in the communications space in the nineties you remember the excitement the industry enjoyed when Microsoft and Novell entered the telecom markets with TAPI and TSAPI protocols to interconnect communications systems with computers. The CTI or computer telephony integration space was born when the OS companies realized that by enabling telecom systems to be more tightly integrated with computing, they could in effect start to generate revenue by having new telecom systems built on their open platforms. Prior to this time, any sort of integration cost hundreds of thousands of dollars but CTI solutions based on desktop computers could be built for $10,000 to $15,000.

I couldn't help but think about this market as I read an article on connected buildings from Erin Harrison which resides on the Smart Data Center community.
