Flash to HTML5 – Swiffy From Google
JUNE 29, 2011
This has come just in time for mLearning implementers; there is a new tool out in Google Labs called Swiffy that let’s one convert flash animation (swf files) to a device independent HTML5. Simply put, this will allow existing libraries of flash animation content to be ported to devices that run iOS – iPhones, iPads, and iPods. This also helps us poor elearning developers circumvent the continuous war between Adobe and Apple over flash technology, and allow delivery across devices/platforms. Incidentally, Adobe had worked on just such a tool called Wallaby.

Making Sense of Research
MARCH 17, 2015
As I pointed out, aggregating data from sensors could do things like identify traffic jams (Google Maps already does this), or collect data like restaurant ratings. A new iDevice is always cool, and while it’s not the first smart watch (nor was the iPhone the first smartphone, the iPad not the first tablet, nor the iPod the first music play), Apple has a way of making the experience compelling. A couple of weeks ago, I was riffing on sensors: how mobile devices are getting equipped with all sorts of new sensors and the potential for more and what they might bring.

I visited my dad every day in the hospital, bringing along my laptop and iPod.

Why Should Mobile Learning Be on Your Mind?
MAY 1, 2012
I read the article Here’s Why Google and Facebook Might Completely Disappear in the Next 5 Years “ and, coupled with some research on mobile video I’m doing, paused because I suddenly felt like I was missing something. And to put that in some context, it took us 24 years to sell that many Macs and 5 years for that many iPods and over 3 years for that many iPhones.” It was one of those “wait – what?” ” moments that I sometimes get as an analyst because you know, I have to know this stuff.

See my posts: A challenge to the multitask assumption The case against multitasking is building More multitasking madness My guess is that what is really happening is that people are switching their attention between a background medium – TV, radio, music on their iPod – and something more vital and urgent like texting, reading new emails, using Twitter, playing a game or social networking. Much of this increase had been driven by one site - Facebook - which accounts for 45% of all mobile web use in the UK, followed by Google at 8%.” The findings are startling. people.

Different ways of looking at it
MARCH 18, 2008
Google Reader is the best I’ve found but even that becomes monotonous. For most people, listening to an iPod is secondary to the hike. Don’t tell anybody, because some people see me as a champion of this stuff, but the standard formats for reading RSS feeds bore me silly. Bloglines drove me nuts: you couldn’t even change the garish colors. So I rotate feed readers. One of my favorites, especially if I’m in a hurry is a cloud view of learning sites. Other times I look at a river of the same feeds. And sometimes I prefer the pageflake view.
Dissecting Saba's New "Anywhere" Product for Mobile Learning
