Thanks to the amazing blog iLearn technology by Kelley Tenkley, I was able to find out about Google Lab's, Swiffy. Swiffy is a great way to turn SWF (flash) files into html5. This is ideal when dealing w/ those stubborn video files that you can usual download from a free video site/app.
For example, I used to use Alice Storytelling quite a bit w/ 7-8th graders for digital storytelling. The final product would be an SWF file, which would be a pain to convert. Now w/ Google's Swiffy any flash file can be converted for free.
Why is this such a big deal? Well, think of all those mobile device users of Apple's iPad/iPod, they can now have all their flash content played right through Google, very nice!!!
