ok, iPad is out..

since I think it’s useless to write down an article about all the features and things regarding the new device from Apple, I’ll just talk about my personal opinions about it. If you need more infos about the iPad just go on any other tech site and I am sure that they will talk about it.. 🙂 or simply just go on the Apple on here http://www.apple.com/ipad/

Firstly I won’t buy it.. At least since there won’t be a newer version.. You’ll ask why.. Simply, because I’ll wait until someone will decide do put his hands on it and unlock it, and I’ll also wait for a memory upgrade, cause let me say it, 64 GB for the top one it’s just ridicolus.. It will fill up in just few seconds.. I don’t want a bigger iPhone that doesn’t even manage calls, and I don’t even want a smaller macbook with no multitasking..

That’s the point.. multitasking.. what if I want to be connected to skype and in the meantime I wanna read a book or surf the web?.. I just can’t..

It doesn’t even have a camera or a front one to ichat..

Well, It’s for sure a very cool device, really, I’m always astonished when I look at an Apple event, but the iPad doesn’t convince me from all the sight, it seriously needs a little more development from my point of view.. And since I’m not a person who just follow trends I’ll think about buying it very well..

The real big things about this device is that it’s going to be powered by a processor 100% made by Cupertino.. It’s nice to see that they are going to jump into a new business. The other one is the IPS display which I think it will be gorgeous. And the last one is the battery.. 10 hours of watching movies as Steve said.. if that’s true it simply staggering!

Maybe I’ll be wrong, but for the moment I’ll stick with my Macbook and my iPhone.. It’s way better.. 🙂

The end of Flash?

I hope.. 🙂

I’m not teasing.. Adobe flash is one of that things that have changed our way of surfing the web.. You can see a flash animation in quite every site, every video you see on youtube for example is thank to Flash..

So what’s the problem? Flash is becoming always more powerful, but this power must be taken from somewhere, and that place is your CPU and your ram.. The result is that every time you watch a video or do something “Flash addicted”, your machine will become very slow (unless you have a very powervful machine obviously).. Without speaking about the other huge amount of problems that Flash causes.

Until now I and many others were using a nice plug-in for Safari that blocked every Flash animation until you decide you want to see them with just one click, and coverted quite every video on youtube in h264 which uses a lot less CPU with the same quality (sometimes even better) of a video watched with flash player.

But today it comes a real revolution..Thanks to the Google support, Youtube has finally become HTLM5 enabled, so if you are using a browser that runs on web kit and/or support html5 you can go on youtube at this URL www.youtube.com/html5 and gain the advantage of no more using flash on the most popular videos site.

I really hope that HTML5 will become a real substitute of Flash. Maybe Adobe will understand that they should develop better their application from the lightness point of view and not only focus on pure power.

A personal thought..

Apple decided to go without Flash on iPhone.. Maybe they already thought about the future and didn’t waste time and money on developing something that won’t be used anymore? Who knows..
