Ever since node 4877 in 2003 we have a “prediction” post up on drupal.org where Drupal coder and users can share their vision on what will happen the year ahead with their beloved tool. Ever? Well, we skipped last year on drupal.org. so we can not look back to the predictions you made last year on this site.
But that should not stop you to make new some new predictions. And you welcome to do so in the comments on the posting on d.o.
Will parts of Drupal end up in another CMS or framework? Will “WSCCI first” be the slogan? Or will the consolidation in the CMS landscape and the trend to leave our small island make new bridges towards other PHP projects or even make a new Pangaea, beyond PHP and the web? Will Drupal be the answer in Jeopardy on the question “what is the best CMS?”. Time will tell. Or you.. In the comments on the prediction 2013 posting.
Too bad there is not much information online about how they build this... Cool technology though, lame dancing :-)
And ... without letting the user know, send lots of data of the tablet (location, contacts etc) to the mothership. Think about it, would you install "cnn.exe" on your windows host just to access one site? Would you download "microsoft.dmg" to see the website from the other side? Hell no, native apps must die, silos will fall down. I have been ranting about this for a long time, 2008, again and recent in my famous there is an app for that, it is called a browser post.
With progresive design being the standard and with modern mobile browsers honering the tags like VIDEO, a "HTML-Apps" will crush native apps. Not everybody shares that vision, but in broader sense it is clear that webapps will dominate above native apps in the mobile space; they are easy central to update and by definition cross platform.
As stated before, the browser is the OS.
If this is true, there is no reason to stop at a specific devices like a mobile. And indeed, Google docs replaced the office suite and as can be sen below, with pure HTML you can even do photobooth alike effects.
And now garageband is having a hard time with a browser based -less UI more interaction with friend- tool called jamwithchrome.
One day, the browser will be the OS and we will all have big fat thin clients again with a mixture of local data and apps and remote data and apps. Al I wish for is that -despite the fact that I wish every company as much sicess as they can get- Google will not be the new Microsoft and Chrome not the new IE.
The other day, I wanted to extract a video from a Keynote presentation. I have made the video and the keynote file myself, but threw away the screencast that I have put in the keynote file. It is easy to get a picture form a keynote file, control c and controlv are your friend. But you can not copy a video this way.
The solution, easy to do, complicated to find out. You do know that most mac files are in fact "bundles", directories with data and meta data in it? And it is just OSX that is showing you a fancy icon instead of the content? The same is true with keynote files. Complex to find out.
Easy to do:
Oohh apple, why make it so hard?
