iPad’s AdLib HTML5 Framework Unearthed

Nicknamed the AdLib Framework after the name of a file found when digging around on his iPad (it’s AdLib-ug-ipad.js for the trivia buffs out there), a developer by the name of Jim Hoskins is credited as discovering Apple’s key to HTML 5 through its SDK and tools.

Apple’s iPad ships on April 3rd, but Apple has set a hard deadline for developers to get their apps submitted to the App Store by March 27th.  Apple runs a tight ship, we all know that, but adding to the problem is that all apps must be built on the latest version of the SDK (3.2, beta 5). So developers are expected to create applications without any access to an actual iPad (sure sure, emulators are available, but we all know that only goes so far) and with the latest beta of the SDK.  The beta, by the way, was released yesterday (3/19).
