HTML5 is coming, and we’ve yet to see Flash properly supported under any Apple device; iPhone, iPod touch or even iPad. Where web standards are concerned, the next year or two is bound to be very interesting indeed.
2010 is shaping up to be the year of the tablet.
Nokia’s Ovi suite of services hasn’t had a very smooth ride since their inception in mid-2009, though if the new Ovi Maps is anything to go by, they’re right on track to produce something that both developers and users will flock to.

I’ve been using Firefox for as long as I can remember on the PC, and one of my biggest peeves was that it wasn’t (then) available for mobile devices, particularly those Symbian-powered phones with ‘Nokia’ stamped all over.

The Nexus One is finally out, and predictably, the Android 2.1 SDK follows.
I wonder how long it takes the AP and their affiliated sites to realize that they need Google more than Google needs them?
After a no-show at CES 2010, seems like we won’t be seeing Windows Mobile 7 till much, much later. Wonder if the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will be an Android-only affair.
CES was quite fun this year, and having the internet also meant that you didn’t really need to be there to see what went down on the show floors. Scoble pretty much covers all the bases here, from 3D TVs to e-readers and so on.
It’s very interesting how something as decidedly low-tech as fonts could have so many issues when translated to supposedly cutting-edge platforms. Makes you want to rethink just how you use fonts on your machine.
