Apple announced a new HTML5 demo site. The site features all sorts of HTML5 demo projects, with the video demo coming right at the top of the list. There are demos on transitions, typography and more. Viewable in Safari, naturally. (Insert snark here.)
At the bottom of the page, there’s a subtly placed link to Steve Jobs’ article explaining why iPhone and iPad don’t support Flash—in case you didn’t make the connection to Flash from the rest of the page.
To me, the interesting part of this effort from Apple is the link to the developer information about the demos. You can pick up examples, instructions and code. There might be some gems useful to educators among the instructions.

Or it might not. I’ve inspected the code and it is really not best practice at all. Browser sniffing (even blocking Webkit based Chrome), no progressive enhancements, HTML 4 doctypes (sic!), divitis, misused article and section elements, etc. Oh, yes, and precious little actual HTML5

I’m glad you looked at the code. I didn’t go there . . .
Be warned, people, be warned.
