Although it’s part of my job to stay current in the world of web apps, it’s also a passion of mine. I love the web, cloud-based computing and all the exciting possibilities it holds for the future. However, I’m not exactly enthralled with web apps on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. But, why not?
Let’s take a look into the wonderful world of mobile web apps, shall we?
If you haven’t noticed already, Facebook announced they would be supporting higher resolution photos, easier tagging and a better photo viewer at the end of last month. The changes would be rolled out over the following few weeks, so you likely already have these features.
While the improvements are greatly appreciated from many, they aren’t exactly at the core of today’s discussion. With the massive number of Facebook users, I’m very curious as to how this change will affect other photo storage and sharing services such as Flickr, Picasa and SmugMug. What do you think?
Remember OnLive? It’s the gaming service that set its sights high towards offering cloud-based gaming that doesn’t require any special hardware except a system capable of streaming 720p content.

Recently OnLive took another step towards success, making the platform more accessible to the masses. What have they done? They’ve ditched the base subscription required to access OnLive. Read on for more info. and why we think this is a vital step towards success.
