And you’d think it would have, with all the increased awareness of accessibility and usability considerations.

Every course in Internet Design and Development worth its salt covers the fundamentals of good design principles, usability, and accessibility. It can’t be blamed on the engineering standards, because the W3C guidelines are stricter and more clearly defined than ever before. Nor can it be blamed on technology, because the technology is more supportive of developing high quality sites, not less. No, the answer to this paradox is actually quite simple. It’s because designers have had their power stripped away by the demands of marketers and…

For many developers, the public feud between Apple and Adobe over the last couple of years has been hard. Apple’s ban on Adobe Flash meant that development time for the iPhone and iPad would cost developers extra time and money, along with the giant headache of using several technologies to develop one mobile project on several different platforms. But, just when it seemed like the headache was becoming too much, Apple suddenly changed their minds and reversed the ban last month.
