WWW == dying, wtf, if you know jQuery and CoffeeScript, you set for life, mang! It's all about building it once, and wrapping with PhoneGape (<-- lol) for the next 5 years, don't you read?
It's written on blogs and corroborated, it must be factual.
Yeah, we've talked about this before. Even above Flash vs. Flex, you're Product and I'm Service based; more than just a lens, a completely different path in a different direction.
This isn't a whim, this is the mobile revolution kickstarted by Apple. My kids are growing up where everything is touch, they consume media on demand, and can view the same content on a variety of places. The web is theoretically the perfect vehicle for this, but is too slow to evolve, so private sector native solutions + hardware help drive profit in the short term for public companies, while the web helps use hindsight to better aim their sights (sometimes... ECMA4, what a disaster).
I get what you mean, though.
Well, that's why I mentioned PhoneGap; that is the web's gateway into app stores. Google's Play + Amazon both have web solutions, and Facebook embedding is proof it works there as well in a traditional web context. Zynga is proof you can make bling there.
Dude, shut up, Webkit just got sub-pixel rendering... well, for Canvas anyway.
