Only One US City Makes "Top Ten Internet Cities Worldwide" List 240

An anonymous reader writes "A new report today has ranked the Top 10 'Internet Cities' around the globe, based on a set of five criteria: connection speed, availability of citywide WiFi, openness to innovation, support of public data, and security/data privacy. One might expect high-tech cities like San Francisco and Tel Aviv to appear on a list of 'Internet Cities,' but they don't. Indeed, no Middle Eastern cities appear here at all, and — due, largely, to the United States' poor Internet speeds — the only US city to make this ranking is Seattle."

The needs of the business world is always changing and the needs of the internet is changing to meet it. HTML 5 isn't just a new shiny stuff which people can use. Its stuff people can do already but need large libraries and stuff to create now.
Newer libraries just mean that you will download less to the client, in order to provide the rich user experience they expect now a days.

TFA is pure FUD most of the problems which it highlights exist already. If anything HTML5 sorts out more issues than it creates.

So Samsung filed this motion nearly 2 years ago for an import ban of then relevant product. it been delayed and delayed and now is an irrelevant product, So Apple cannot import any more iPad2's or iPhone4's but isnt stopped from importing iPhone4S's, iPhone5's, iPad3's, iPad4's and iPad Mini's, with no consequence.

I'm happy that Samsung won but what did they really win Apple cant sell products it doesn't care about any more ?

Make headway at work. Continue to let things deteriorate at home.
