Most apps to be considered financial failures by 2018

Fewer than 1pc of consumer apps will be considered financial successesby their developers, technology analysts at Gartner predicted in areport released today.

While this sentiment does ring true, I had to laugh at the closing paragraph:

Future developments are also seen in the continuing development of HTML5, which Dulaney predicted will change the smartphone market froma restricted one operating system-only ability to a multi-platformmodel.

HTML5 has been "almost there" for several years now, so you'll have to forgive my skepticism. It's in danger of becoming the new "year of linux on the desktop".
