This week different views on the web and how we use it: is the mouse dead, is H.264 the video codec of the future and do browsers need to innovate?

  • We Have Met the Enemy and He Is PowerPoint
    Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the leader of American and NATO forces in Afghanistan, was shown a PowerPoint slide in Kabul last summer that was meant to portray the complexity of American military strategy, but looked more like a bowl of spaghetti.
  • Finextra: Banco Sabadell gears up for iPad launch
    Spain’s Banco Sabadell has unveiled iPad and iPhone specific versions of its mobile banking service.
  • The touch computing digital divide: Is the mouse dead?
    Microsoft kills its Courier dual screen tablet. HP’s Slate may be on the rocks. Apple’s Steve Jobs pans Adobe for catering to the mouse crowd (among about  other reasons). And HP buys Palm in a move to grab the WebOS, which will presumably power smartphones as well as tablets from the company.
  • The web sucks. Browsers need to innovate
    The web as an application platform stinks, and I think this is even more apparent now as we see incredible iPad apps being released. Why are iPad apps, in their initial versions, so much better than websites that have existed for years?
  • H.264 Already Won—Makes Up 66 Percent Of Web Videos
    As the chart shows, in the past four quarters, the H.264 format went from 31 percent of all videos to 66 percent, and is now the largest format by far.
