Apple eyes HTML5 mobile makeover
Apple has tasked its newly formed "creative technology" team with designing interactive HTML5-based content for iOS-powered mobile devices.
As AppleInsider notes, Club Cupertino is currently seeking a tech manager to lead the nascent team and "spearhead" HTML5 development on Apple's (notoriously) Flash-less website.
"This individual will be responsible for driving web-standard (HTML5) innovation that enhances and redefines the marketing of Apple's products and services to millions of consumers," a job listing spotted by AI reads.
"Work will also include exploring opportunities with Apple.com, email and mobile/multi-touch experiences on the iPhone and iPad."
In addition, the future manager is expected to lead a team that will develop interactive prototypes for HTML5 websites, while "evaluating innovative ideas and approaches to standards-based" development.
"Apple's promotion of HTML5 is [clearly] part of the company's stance against Adobe Flash, which Chief Executive Steve Jobs slammed as unfit for mobile devices in a letter published earlier this year," explained AppleInsider's Neil Hughes.
