iPhone, iPad support an important focus
Apple has assembled a "creative technology team" to produce HTML5 content for its website, a fresh job listing indicates. The company is specifically seeking a manager for the team, who 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." The job should also involve "exploring opportunities with apple.com, email and mobile/multi-touch experiences on the iPhone and iPad."
Part of the team's work will center on creating prototypes of HTML5 pages to test ideas. AppleInsider notes that the company has been gradually rolling out the standard throughout more of its website during the past few months. Visitors can for instance compare Macs, get showtimes in the movie trailer section, or visit a promotional page showing off various concepts. Apple is one of the strongest proponents of HTML5, as the company's iOS devices are incapable of running the most popular alternative, Flash.
