There's also the Oliver Stone movie "W". It was a very unflattering view of a then sitting President, George W. Bush, based on a few facts and a whole lot of rumor and insinuation. Doubtful he approved of it and the movie there's little doubt it affected whatever remaining legislative or international influence he might have had in the last months of his presidency. Certainly helped to damage the image of America in addition to that of Mr. Bush IMHO.
Similar to the Moto X case design perhaps?
The Xbox live attack was threatened for Christmas a few weeks ago (with the advance notice I'm a little surprised MS didn't have a better response). It had nothing to do with showing The Interview. Google showed no signs of being attacked by hackers for streaming the movie AFAIK.Edit: I haven't seen any statement from the hacker group yet as to why they don't like gaming networks. This is one of several gaming disruptions they've claimed to have caused this year. Anyone...
If you had used GooglePlay Movies you could have watched full HD for the same price. There's an iTunes app for it too.https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id746894884
By the way, there was a good Flurry article I'd read a few months ago. It's a worthwhile read if you're curious who and where they are now and where they came from. http://venturebeat.com/2014/07/29/how-the-yahoo-acquisition-saved-flurry-from-an-uncertain-fate-exclusive/
There wasn't really a need to ask if you were right. Since you were publicly posting your theory for Apple not quickly rolling out the movie I would have thought you'd at least take a moment to see if it had any validity. That by itself was a good reason to look at what quality Google was steaming before posting your supposition don't you think? You obviously had an interest.
All you had to do was look here: https://play.google.com/store/movies/details/The_Interview?id=Ed2kSuKqfz0 "Someone" was wrong about 480 only. Edit: This is an example of why I post links for anything likely to be questioned. Really takes no significant time to ferret out the facts in most cases either, more often a matter of a few minutes. This one took less than that. Too many folks are quick to assume something they'd like to believe must be true if some other person...
What's the difference between the "Apple-quality" streaming format and what Google Play or Xbox delivers?I don't believe you are correct.
Google takes 30% too AFAIK. I imagine Microsoft does as well. Seems to be industry standard.Edit: Yeah, same at Microsoft, tho there's still 5 more days of a special 20% rate for high-revenue apps at the Windows Store (not the Windows Phone store)http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh694058.aspx
