Oh you're allowed to say it. Just don't expect a totally reasonable response.
It doesn't have to make sense if you really, really believe it.
My guess is that is exactly what this is designed for. Dedicated silicon. Think AppleTV, Fire, Chromecast (future version), or any of the other set top boxes. That's what they are targeting. This codec isn't about what consumers use on the desktop, it's about how video gets to their TV. Dedicated hardware has better copy protection (not approving just noting motive), and has the decoding power built in. So this fits right in.
That is not a typical experience. When I visited my parents I realized that they were on 10.5 on the old MacBooks they had. Never had a problem, and they are at least 5 years old.
Did you even read what they wrote? Reusing a rocket would have enormous economic advantages. This is hardly a publicity stunt.
Good guess. I manage engineers!
Sweet, I'm as smart as a 5th grader!
Then what's the answer?
I am guessing the answer is the north pole...
Ok, I ran around the block. Can I watch some more porn now?
Well I bought a Panasonic TV two years ago and have to go through a "Home" screen before I get what I want. Oh, and there are ads on this home screen. But the worst part? Ads would occasionally appear over the content when using the volume controls. That's right, hit volume up and get an ad from United Airlines!
I did manage to turn off the ads but swore I'd never buy another Panasonic.
The original comment only made the case that Apple did less of it, which I agree. I think it's because their business model doesn't put pressure on them to monetize their users.
You don't need personal knowledge, it's about business platforms. One is about selling hardware for a profit, one is about monetizing users. And the way most companies monetize users is data mining. Spying is their business model.
I think you mean He's still an idiot.
And it seems to me that even an idiot would realize that using bad grammar while calling someone an idiot can make you look like an idiot too.
It's "you're an idiot".
