Someone brought this up in relation to Al Gore being mentioned.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ross_Perot
and you still don't get the significant flaw, do you? The video is H.264 - a standard anyone can adopt It's being played on an html web page - also a standard anyone can adopt but there is a needless extra proprietary layer that is not a standard, and that doesn't run on EVERY browser, called Flash, that is required to play much of the content. This isn't required because flash is doing something special, it's required because the html standard was missing...
For what hardware did they add the acceleration? My question is how does Apple add support for their own custom hardware? The answer is they can't, they are dependent on Adobe to do it. Why should Apple, or any other vendor, be dependent on a 3rd party for something as basic as video playback when there are now clear standards that allow them to implement and optimize the playback themselves?It's just completely backwards to have a structure where implementation of a...
Tell me how apple is supposed to hardware accelerate flash (thus reduce battery drain for playing video) the way they hardware accelerate h.264 decoding?
Do you really not understand the difference between video being delivered in a format that requires a flash plugin and video being delivered in an industry standard format like H.264? In both cases, browsers have to display the video. In the first case, their only choice is a flash plugin, which a 3rd party had to develop for that platform.

plus the $1.25 billion a few years ago in the same referenced article. When you are spending billions to prepay for supplies, you should get preferential treatment.
why are people suggesting MMS is dying? The reason AT&T has been so slow to roll out MMS is because MMS usage will go up dramatically when it's enabled on the iPhone. eMail is fine for many things, but for quick messaging, it's not as convenient as the iChat style messaging on the iPhone. Suggeting MMS is dead makes no more sense than suggesting the iPhone isn't either a pocket computer or a smart phone. Before iPhone, I usually didn't even know where my cell phone...
same thing happens for me with iPhone - not using Moble me or exchange server. Just standard IMAP mail server running on our corporate XServe.
it absolutely is illegal to rip movies. DVDs and Blu Ray have built in DRM, circumventing this to make a copy is a violation of the DMCA, thus is illegal. Audio CDs don't have DRM, thus it is not illegal to RIP those.
