AMP is specifically designed for mobile. The fact that it can be viewed on a computer is irrelevant. It is completely browser agnostic. This an open source project on Github with an Apache license. They can't hide any secret code in there. Totally transparent.
I agree. As Google states in the documentation, if the page is full of ads and is slow loading and jerking around as the elements load, people tend to bail. They want a good user experience so that people stick around to view their ads. They also prohibit javascript except for their single js file. That in itself really speeds things up because multiple html request take a lot of time. Same with stylesheets. You have to put all your styles in the head tag. I see all of the...
A couple other observations:   It disables Ghostery somehow but, it doesn't really matter because tracking is not allowed anyway, other than a 1x1 pixel for page view count.   AdBlock still works.   It also disables scrolling until the content below has rendered.   One other thing to keep in mind is that the way it works is that it creates iframes for every resource so even if the external content has Javascript it can't put cookies in your browser because it is...
Wrong. 100% Google. A required element in any AMP page is cdn.ampproject.orgCheck the whois for that. You should do some research before jumping to conclusions. You should do some research before jumping to conclusions. This is not correct. You can use your own server to serve the content. You do have to load a single Javascript file from amp project. It is not up to Google to cut the ads. That is determined by the website serving the page. You might benefit from reading...
Well that wouldn't be me. I'm arguing the opposite.
That would be like saying that my Mac is not a computer because I can write applications with Windows and Linux in a cross compiling environment that will run on a Mac. As I recall the first Mac could write applications that ran on Macs, so yes, even by the outdated definition they were computers.
Apple is set to release KeychainTouchID to third party developers. I wonder if that might open up the ability to authenticate for Android Pay. I'm no expert in that area, just idle speculation.
I don't believe it is public knowledge that it will not work with iPhone. Google is closely involved in the project and we all know how interested they are in iOS apps. There might be a pretty good chance Google will write a Tag Heuer app for iPhone.
Sure, an iPad is definitely a computer. My auto also has several onboard computers. The lines are blurred between what makes something a device or makes it a computer. I think the old school definition was that if the machine could be used to write a program that runs on the same machine then it was a true computer. Otherwise it was some sort of device or controller. That definition is bit strict these days and perhaps we should expand it to include any device that allows...
And we'll probably never know.
