Then why not let the market decide? I'm happy with either format, it is up to the content providers to decide what is best for them, if they choose to use flash I don't like it, but such is life. Why is Google trying to put their finger on the scales? I like chrome, it's got a nice debugging environment and the built in translation and individual process per tab are really nice, but I want to have more choices, not less. I don't think it should be the position of browser manufacturers to dictate what kind of media should be produced. But my feeling is that they over reached. It's a big fuck you to the content providers who turned their back on GoogleTV I think.

I had the same experience with a iPhone 3G (not 3GS) after upgrading to OS 3.0 Some stuck process drained my battery to zero in a very short period of time. I wasn't near my charger, and initially I thought that the unit had died. I've never drained the battery before, and trying to power it up in that state didn't give a response of any kind. Once I got home I was relieved when it woke up after docking it.

This is an OS issue I think, not the battery. The side effect is heat and reduced life though. I'd imagine that the thermal monitoring isn't able to shutdown the unit when it gets into that state. I wasn't handling my unit at the time so I don't know if there was heat related to the event.

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
