The truth is that Steve Jobs is a genius about getting people to pay for his Beta Testing at Apple.

Google bigwig says browser-based web apps will replace app stores on cell phones

Take it from me. I’ve been around mobile marketing, WAP, SMS, Mobile video for some time now. My sales pipeline and client roster is growing for one reason. They trust me. I’ve turned down several large paydays because I was honest with them, sometime to a fault. It’s a good thing the baby will be content with Breast Milk for a while….

Just Kidding…. SHEESH!

The iPhone’s app store has been a huge component of Apple’s success, but someone at Google doesn’t think it will stay that way. A Google vice president of Engineering said at a conference that he doesn’t believe downloadable apps will be part of the future of cell phones. Rather, web-based apps accessed over the internet and through a browser will be the standard.

That has already happened with some kinds of applications on laptops and desktops; Google is even building its new Chrome operating system around that concept. While there are some technical barriers to that future for cell phones, Google might be confident it’ll happen in that market too.
