Mobile Web API Evolution Ragavan Srinivasan’s post about the forthcoming Mozilla Marketplace for Open Web Apps inspired me to write about Mozilla’s surging Web and Device API standards work. A bit of background. Mozilla has always contributed to web standards, going back to the start of the project. We co-founded the WHAT-WG to kick off HTML5. As readers of this blog know, we are a leader in JS standardization. In the last eight months, our efforts to extend the web standards to include new APIs needed to build compelling apps and OS components on mobile devices have really caught fire. So I thought I would compile a list of emerging APIs to which we’ve contributed. The Mozilla contributions are worth noting both to acknowledge the individuals involved, and to highlight how Mozilla is championing device APIs for the web without having a native application stack blessed with such APIs on offer. As always, standards in progress are subject to change, yet require prototype implementation and user-testing. /be
Frighteningly Ambitious Startup Ideas March 2012 One of the more surprising things I've noticed while working on Y Combinator is how frightening the most ambitious startup ideas are. In this essay I'm going to demonstrate this phenomenon by describing some. Any one of them could make you a billionaire. Don't worry, it's not a sign of weakness. There's a scene in Being John Malkovich where the nerdy hero encounters a very attractive, sophisticated woman. Here's the thing: If you ever got me, you wouldn't have a clue what to do with me. That's what these ideas say to us. This phenomenon is one of the most important things you can understand about startups.  You'd expect big startup ideas to be attractive, but actually they tend to repel you. 1. The best ideas are just on the right side of impossible. The point when it became clear to me that Microsoft had lost their way was when they decided to get into the search business. Microsoft : Google :: Google : Facebook. 2. Email was not designed to be used the way we use it now.

job future getusermedia: Getting access to local devices that can generate multimedia streams 4. MediaStream API 4.1 Introduction The MediaStream interface is used to represent streams of media data, typically (but not necessarily) of audio and/or video content, e.g. from a local camera. The data from a MediaStream object does not necessarily have a canonical binary form; for example, it could just be "the video currently coming from the user's video camera". This allows user agents to manipulate media streams in whatever fashion is most suitable on the user's platform. Each MediaStream object can contain zero or more tracks, in particular audio and video tracks. Each track in a MediaStream object has a corresponding MediaStreamTrack object. A MediaStreamTrack represents content comprising one or more channels, where the channels have a defined well known relationship to each other (such as a stereo or 5.1 audio signal). A channel is the smallest unit considered in this API specification. A MediaStream object has an input and an output. A MediaStream can be finished The MediaStream() .

Modern app techniques Progressive web apps Progressive web apps involve taking standard web sites/apps that enjoy all the best parts of the Web — such as discoverability via search engines, being linkable via URLs, and working across multiple form factors — and supercharging them with modern APIs (such as Service Workers and Push) and features that confer other benefits more commonly attributed to native apps. App fundamentals The guides listed below cover common areas of functionality that you'll want to cover/implement in web apps.
