Apple embracing SVG?

Recovered from the Wayback Machine.

A hopeful piece of news from yesterday was about the possibility that Apple will be using SVG for the iPhone rather than Flash.

The advantages? SVG is lightweight, SVG is standard, SVG scales beautifully, SVG doesn’t have to be licensed, and Safari already implements much of the SVG 1.1 specification. Not to mention there’s a version of SVG coming out just tailored for mobile devices.

Other talk based on Apple’s rejection of Flash for the iPhone is that Steve Jobs will use Silverlight, instead. I have to assume there’s a lot of drinking going on at these conferences
