My own tech focus group

Having children gives me my own tech focus group. We now have an Android phone in the house as well as an iPod Touch, so a few days ago there was a little discussion on iTunes vs Android market.

Google have tried to get people hooked on their Chrome browser. Whilst I haven't pointed it out my kids have noticed that there are now Chrome games available so they can get their Angry Birds fix for free - only in Chrome though.

Adobe appear to be backing off of Flash and so there are the usual stupid headlines about the "end" or "death" of Flash. Whilst children of all ages enjoy Flash games (though Chrome games aren't flash) I think there'll be a place for it, especially on older browsers. However HTML5 + javascript is getting closer to what Flash can do - see canvasdemos.com.
