WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working
with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about
WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

A recent Sprint commercial about the “Now Network” noted that 26% of
viewers had no idea what “twittering on Twitter” means. Yet, it’s clear

Hours before Google was due to trot out its Nexus One Google Phone Tuesday,
Apple sent out a statement saying that more than three billion apps have been
downloaded in the roughly 18 months that its iTunes App Store has been open.
Reminding Google who’s king of the hill, Apple CEO Steve Jobs (pictured)
added, “This is like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
The revolutionary App Store offers iPhone and iPod touch users an experience

of the competition catching up anytime soon.”
