Adobe should cut its losses with Apple and target its flagship Flash Player at telecoms carriers, independent analyst Ovum has claimed in a new report*. With the spat over Apple's refusal to support the Adobe Flash technology on its iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices continuing to generate column inches, Ovum believes it is time for Adobe to turn the tables by courting new sponsors of its technology in the shape of telecoms operators. The report states that Adobe and telecoms carriers are faced with similar threats and share similar goals in relation to value-added applications and content, and that carriers should therefore seek an industry-wide partnership with Adobe to use Flash as the basis of their own multi-screen device, development, delivery, and distribution systems. Ovum believes both sides could work together to create a developer ecosystem around connect... (more)

Jobs Has a Few Words for Google & Adobe & They Ain’t Pretty: Reports

"We did not enter the search business. [Google] entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won't let them...I want to go back to that other question first and say one more thing. This don't be evil mantra - It's bullshit." - Steve Jobs at an employee Town Hall the other day according to Wired, MacRummors et al although he may have said "load of crap" not "bullshit"; sources vary. Jobs reportedly means to use "aggressive updates" to stay way out front of the Android phone. Stevie also reportedly called Adobe "lazy." That it could do interesting things but just refuses to and that Apple doesn't support Flash because it's buggy and the chief cause of Mac crashes. Anyway, Flash is going to be superseded by HTML5 for web video and animation, he's quoted as saying. Apple Will Never Allow Flash Player Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch in a blog retor... (more)

iPhone Developer's Journal - AppleInsider Reveals Details of My WWDC Presentation

Here is the complete article in case you haven't yet seen it. There are a couple of interesting things going on here that I want to discuss. First is the issue of NDA breaking. I've been asked about this a LOT, especially with regard to iPhone development. It seems that though pretty much everyone on the planet thinks the iPhone SDK NDA is unreasonable and that Apple should lift it and blah blah. Here's my thoughts on NDAs in general: An NDA is something that you volunteer for, it is willful act, you must choose to agree to the terms of the NDA. No one is forcing you to do it, there are no guns pointed at your head. If you do not like or agree with the terms of the NDA, then do not sign it. However, if you do choose to sign it, then, in my opinion, you lose the right to bitch and moan about the fact that you cannot divulge privileged information. We all knew what we... (more)

The iPhone Is Here To Stay!

I thought it fitting to make a bold statement today as this is my 100th article on Ulitzer... The iPhone is here to stay! Now the follow-on statement is more thought provoking... What's an Enterprise to do about it? If you have followed my previous articles you will know that I'm a devoted advocate of mobility, especially in particular Apple's iPhone and I know that this device is now making its way into businesses, via the mass adoption in the consumer market. I have, in the past few months, written on various subjects such as the integration of Corporate Email, Security & Management of mobile devices, as well as Enterprise adoption and the necessity for businesses to address these previous points to safeguard their mobile devices containing corporate assets. I'm excited that Sybase has now created a very cool interactive brochure, which is very much from the same... (more)

iPhone Developer Summit on Ulitzer Driven by the phenomenal success of the iPhone and the App Store, smartphone app usage is finally taking off in the enterprise. Yet many developers are still uncertain about how to create a great user experience for information-intensive business apps on smartphones.

Here are some leading technology experts who share their valuable insights. Richard MacManus, Founder & CEO, @rww 1. There will be a breakthrough consumer application for Internet of Things - involving the iPhone, RFID tags and a major consumer product such as books or groceries. In general, Internet of Things will ramp up in 2010, with thousands more everyday objects becoming connected to the Internet. 2. Google will acquire PostRank and promptly consign it to the same graveyard Feedburner went to. 3. Microsoft will acquire Wolfram|Alpha and Bing will continue to make small gains in the search market. Google will be distracted by increasing consumer complaints about content farms polluting Google search results. 4. A price war will erup... (more)

Apple's iPad & Business Will Make a Knock-out Combination

iPad on Ulitzer On Monday I wrote an article that put my initial thoughts and findings together on the newly announced iPad's. It included my belief that the current mass of iPhone Developers are excited & poised to adopt iPad, not only with their current applications on the App Store, but creating new applications to take advantage of the iPad... A New app 'gold rush' gathering momentum! Today I have just read a great article from Jason Schwarz on Seeking Alpha, which continues my thread and suggests that currently the iPad is being underestimated for business. To quote Jason... "Anyone who previously relied on a notepad or clipboard will adopt the iPad. Doctors will use the iPad as they move from room to room and interact with patients, teachers will use the iPad as they lecture, coaches will use it as an in game video/scouting tool...think of all the real estat...
