Like I said on twitter, I had high hopes and low expectations… My high hopes of a ton of fighting, action, gore and cool effects was fulfilled. The effects didn’t distract from the fight scenes, instead they enhanced them a enough to show a lot of detail…which is awesome when a movie has that much […]
Glenn Fleishman, concluding his piece for The Economist on the demise of Flash for the mobile web: One consequence of Adobe’s move might be to spur on HTML5. As our columnist recently discussed, the up-and-coming web standard — partially implemented in many current releases of web browsers — incorporates a number of Flash components.

Apple deleting developer’s iCloud libraries in advance of iTunes Match launch… This could be news for everyone but the developers that have seen the same type of email 4 times since the beta started. Maybe this is the last one but I’m not holding my breath.

The iPhone had launched the previous year, famously without any support for Flash. A lot of folks were up in arms about this […]

Sascha Segan, writing at PCMag: I think Apple did the right thing with the battery-life issue, but I’m frustrated by its lack of a public explanation for the Siri problems. […] Unlike with a complex handset bug that needs lots of testing to verify, it’s relatively easy for Apple to know its servers are overloaded […]
