This word always reminds me of an old movie called “Flight of the Navigator.” The computer of a UFO is always saying this as a positive response to a command from its young human navigator. And since the the voice is none other than Paul Reubens, I have to giggle each time I hear the word.Of course, the word has a deeper and much more serious meaning, especially in today’s technologically dense world. It is important to be sure to comply with specified rules for each situation for optimum effectiveness. The technological world is not giggling as we all race to keep up to make websites iPhone and iPad compatible. A article that I read boiled down to Jobs explanation of saying “no” to Flash as “Flash is a battery-hogging middleware solution that is no longer necessary or desirable in an age of advanced mobile devices.”

Despite this wave of thought, the fact remains that most websites have some amount of flash, not to mention all of the other videos and other misc popular entertainment populating the web. And with the abundance and popularity of Apple products flooding the market, no one wants to miss out. So the animation artists at DDA’s new Apple Savvy are hard at work redesigning and converting Flash websites, medical flash animation, animated medical graphics, animated medical videos and virtual medical simulations to be iPad and iPhone compliant. Don’t miss out!

Change Is Ubiquitous

Remember when as kids, you would stand in the school yard while two teams were formed to play a game of ball. The popular kids or the budding athletes always got chosen first, and as the field narrowed, you hoped you would not be the last one chosen. Growing up was hard to do.

Well, here we are entering the 21st century and we have at our disposal some of the most advanced technological tools to work and play with, and as I write, the fight between Apple and Adobe on the internet playground feels like that long ago memory in the school yard. It matters little at this point whose side you are on. The sad reality is that two great companies are in the midst of a divorce and for developers like DDA who work extensively with Flash, we have to swallow hard, accept quickly that we must change and move on.

DDA has important clients that embed video in their medical eLearning projects, and if these clients are to be served, we have to re-encode those videos. Furthermore, as more and more businesses make mobile devices part of their daily arsenal they need to be assured their projects are viewable on all mobile devices. IPhones and IPads are definitely the preferred choice for work and leisure time, and we would be remiss not to recognize that and adapt.

In yesterday’s post I said we could spin on a dime, and we are doing just that.  In a few weeks, we will launch a new website that will offer to corporate and medical companies the resources they need to make their websites IPad ready.

If you build it, they will come… buy it

The Daily Show last night had a spot on the leaked new iPhone story. Jon Stewart expressed his long time love for Apple and all its products, but said that they went too far with their pursuit of the blogger who leaked the information. What I didn’t know before is that the blogger had already returned the iPhone to Apple before he was raided by police and later visited by some Apple people to search his residence. This led Jon Stewart to say that Apple was being a bunch of “appholes.” He also cites how the company itself has changed from the underdog working against the “the man” (Microsoft), as was pictured in this famous commercial in the 80s, to being “the man” themselves with their recent displays.

All in all, Apple is doing incredibly well and their overreaction to this simple blogger dissecting a phone that one of their employees left at a bar is a bit over the top. They first denied that it was their real product so he dissected it and showed the findings, but he gave it back once they changed their minds and admitted that it was the real thing. Let’s face the facts, people are still going to run to the Apple stores to buy these things because they are going to be better than the last iPhone and be packed with a bunch of new innovative features. Jon Stewart still wants to get one. They should stop giving themselves a black eye and just leave the blogger alone and let their product do what it will do best; sell millions of units. You can watch the full Daily Show piece here if you’d like. It’s much funnier when he reads it.

We at DDA know that Apple is a juggernaut and the use of its products, like the iPhone, iPad, and iPod, are incredibly widespread. The number of people using these products is so staggering that your website needs to be in a format that can be seen on them. That means no Flash!

Luckily DDA is ready to help everyone out by offering iPhone and iPad website conversion that can turn your website with flash on it into an Apple product compatible website. Why miss out on the giant audience that Apple brings? Your website needs to be viewable across all types of devices. We also offer iPhone and iPad application development with our custom programming team if you want to make something specially for one of these devices. DDA is the Apple Savvy company.
