Perhaps we could band together, sort of like the We Rule friend request thread, and any time someone posts a major site that they used to use but cannot anymore, link us the contact page or contact email, and we all email that company saying how we wish they had HTML5 for the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch surfing experience, etc. It only takes a couple of minutes and you can copy and paste to each company. Basically the point being to bind together and try to get the ball rolling on HTML5 content...and the more websites that convert, the more will follow suit as competition. For example, (and this is just an example) Target is not going to want to sit with Flash only while Wal Mart has HTML5.
- Mention in your email that the iPad has sold 2 million copies alone in the first 65 days, the iPhone has sold over 50 million since inception, not to mention iPod Touches.
- Also mention how the cheapest iPad is 500 dollars so the demographic buying the iPad tends to be a little more upscale and therefore able to afford more money on advertising, etc
- You can also link to this website that Apple has created, showing how many other sites have already converted: Apple - iPad-ready websites
When you post, please make sure you include a link to the contact page, or preferably email of the webmaster. Don't make everyone search through the website you suggest just to find the contact information. And please be a team player and make sure you have already emailed them before you ask others to do the same for you.
