Those AdMob #s are nearly a year old! It's even more telling now.

It turns out it's not just having a full HTTP stack available so that APIs are easily consumable. Having a simple & consistent system for rendering the UI - thus making it easier to write apps that consume APIs - is just as important.

So thank Palm, Nokia and now even RIM for reinforcing the defacto WebKit standard.

When we win it's with small things,
and the triumph itself makes us small.
What is extraordinary and eternal
does not want to be bent by us.
I mean the Angel who appeared
to the wrestlers of the Old Testament:
when the wrestler's sinews
grew long like metal strings,
he felt them under his fingers
like chords of deep music.

Whoever was beaten by this Angel
(who often simply declined the fight)
went away proud and strengthened
and great from that harsh hand,
that kneaded him as if to change his shape.
Winning does not tempt that man.
This is how he grows: by being defeated, decisively,
by constantly greater beings.

Rainer Maria Rilke
