4525009 d2d59b6c46 mWelcome to another week of 5 for Friday. We hope you enjoyed our post earlier this week from Aaron Dun on mobile development and Augmented Reality. Per usual we are going to post five links from around the web we hope you'll find interesting.

Let's get to it:

Can Flash and HTML5 get along? - O'Reilly Radar
Veteran technology James Turner explores whether the two technologies can co-exist in an in-depth interview with Adobe's Duane Nickull, who says neither is simple as it seems. A good read if you want to understand the differences between Flash and HTML 5 and Adobe's strategy moving forward.

Dear Rob-1 - Agile & Business
In a fictional letter to Rob, a senior executive overseeing an Agile-Scrum project, this post explores why Agile and Scrum make sense for business. Perhaps you'll recognize some of these arguments (or maybe it'll give you a fresh perspective).

Cloud CIO: How Cloud Changes IT Staff - Network World
There has been some fear in IT circles that 'The Cloud' could take away IT jobs. This post explains that the jobs will still be there, but the nature of the jobs will change as more of a company's operations move to the cloud. Monitoring will be a big deal moving forward.

Android 3.0 Honeycomb Preview SDK Hints At Phone Support? - AndroidGuys
Google has made a lot of noise that Honeycomb, the code name for the Android OS for tablets was going to be exclusively for tablets, meaning Honeycomb features wouldn't be available to mobile phone developers. But the Andorid Guys are hearing there may be ways around that. It's still too early to tell, but it's certainly something you should be watching.

Google-ITA Software deal: FairSearch.org says consent decree not enough - Tnooz
Travel industry watchers may want to pay attention to this on-going story. Google is attempting to buy ITA Software, a flight information software company for $700 million. Consumer watch dog, FairSearch.org isn't sure it's a good idea and told the Justice Department as much.
