More Apple Flash Alternative Rumors
As mentioned earlier Gianduia, Apples rumored alternative to Flash is in development.
The technology, called Gianduia, was introduced by Apple last summer at its World of WebObjects Developer Conference, according to an AppleInsider report. Gianduia is described as being “a client-side, standards-based framework for rich Internet apps.”
Apple has apparently been using Gianduia in several of its retail support applications, including services such as the One to One program, the iPhone reservation system, and the Concierge program for Genius Bar and Personal Shopping reservations.
How this plays out for Apple will be interesting. It can be argued that Apple has been picking a fight with virtually all the top contenders all at once; Google, Microsoft, and Adobe have all seen Apple move unprovoked into their territory.
