No. Now fuck off Dice.
STFU already Dice. We won't fall for your click bait articles.
"beyond the range of human hearing"
Great, now you're going to piss off my dog, too? Thanks Google!
Fuck off Dice we don't care about your shitty fluff pieces passing as news! You will not get any ad dollars from me and I encourage everyone else not to click or respond to this garbage.
HTML is only widely used because it's widely used.
HTML is only widely used because there is no other way to get your content to a large audience.
Of course it is.
Even "sed" (the text filtering utility) is a programming language.
If you have mechanisms for comparison, branching and buffering, you are dealing with a programming language.
Simply contact the account manager that has been assigned to you. It's no problem at all to contact Google if you're actually bringing in revenue for them.
The last thing Apple wants is for any tablet to be identified as and referred to as an iPad.
Unless people will go to the store and ask for "an iPad" even when they don't specifically mean the tablet by Apple.
I like the old fashion network cables that is stable, secured, and fast. Wireless is only for portable devices and far away.
You say "only for portable devices" like that isn't 80% of computing these days.
I honestly don't understand why people would buy a "smart" TV instead of a monitor, surround sound speakers, and plug it in to a laptop or computer. How many people really use OTA broadcasts nowadays?
Yeah, because computers aren't susceptible to attacks at all. Everyone knows there's nothing more secure than keeping an internet-connected computer running 24/7 in your house.
I can turn off HbbTV support on my Smart TV, no problem. In fact I had disabled it even before I realized it could be a security hazard, as it also slows down booting and channel switching, while providing no benefit to me whatsoever.
The geographical limitations of me buying an app from the iStore killed it for me.
Geographical? What? You do know the App Store isn't an actual store in the mall, right?
It's funny how little difference there is between what Facebook's servers are doing and the NSA's. I wonder who has more info on you.
That's why the iphone flopped when Apple decided it wouldn't support flash in an era where flash was pretty important.
But you see, it really wasn't that important at all. Flash was mainly used for 3 things: ads, video and games. Video and games the iPhone could do fine and ads nobody wants anyway.
It would be very different for real web stuff, as people can just install another browser on their devices. I think there would be quite a backlash amongst both developers and the general public if a vendor suddenly decides to artificially limit the capabilities of their web browser. In a way, that is what Microsoft is doing by adopting new features so slowly and their market share is but a fraction of what it used to be. People want to be on the platform that works.
But the larger view is its a catch-22; most developers won't use features that aren't widely available cross-platform -- so any major closed platform that sees those features as a threat simply can refuse to implement them, and most developers will in turn avoid using those features.
When I'm developing for the web, I don't even bother to look at what new-fangled nonsense Chrome has just released. My baseline is to only use features that are widely supported.
The difference between what's widely supported and what's new-fangled is fading with IE's decreasing popularity though. The world in which non of the new stuff was actually usable is long gone. Can you release a web app that uses Web Audio right now and you would serve about 80% of the market, including iPhones and iPads.
