Two New High-Profile Web Apps

Category: Business,Internet,iPad,iPhoneTeknovis @ 8:39 am

This week I came across two more high-profile companies moving from apps to web app (HTML5) to avoid the Apple tax.

The other advantages that these developers will experience is that they no longer need to get approval from Apple (which can make planning and time lines difficult), and their apps are now cross-platform!

I previous wrote about this subject in Financial Times on an iDevice.

Growing Storage Requirements

Category: InternetTeknovis @ 6:45 pm

I read some interesting facts regarding the globally increasing demand for storage:

  • Walmart adds a billion rows per minute to its database.
  • YouTube contains as much data as all commercial television networks broadcast in a year.
  • The Large Hadron Collider can generate terrabytes of data per second.

These facts are from a speech given by Jim Held, who is the Director of Terra-Scale computing in Intel.
