So what do we really mean by ‘radical thinking’?
Here at BlueVia, we believe it’s not just about creating new apps and services. It is also changing how we interact with the web. The last five years have seen an explosion in the availability of interconnected devices, but there appears to be a gold rush to ‘imprison’ both users and developers to a single platform or ecosystem.
This is bad news for the web – it harms innovation. The web was designed for the free transfer of data, so locking it away hurts the web and ultimately all of us. This is why we are really excited about Firefox OS by Mozilla as it makes the web ‘the platform’.
Firefox OS places no restrictions with what you can do – you have the right to take anything you have brought with you to anywhere else. This is all possible because the OS is built on HTML5, meaning that any app you purchase can be run on any system with a compatible browser on any combination of Phone, Tablet, PC or TV.
We think it’s an amazing idea that can free the user and because it can run on low power devices, it opens a whole new generation to access the internet for the first time.
We think we’re going to see a whole new suite of apps that can change the world. You can get started right now on writing apps for Firefox OS – take a look at Mozilla’s ‘Getting started with making apps’ guide here. Go on.
