Unfortunately WebP isn't all that good for a next-gen format.
Firefox OS is trying to fix much of this.
The Web is the most successful platform of all time and we're leading the pack on bringing a the Web platform to mobile in a way that's integrated rather than fractured like the existing app store models.
the preceding post is an example of posturing
It's why you are foaming at the mouth trying to characterize the first honest system by a failure that doesn't shake the system at all despite its magnitude.
the problem is you idiots have an effect on the rest of society. we have to bail your ignorant asses out when you inevitably fuck up. so grow a brain
payment processors getting together and colluding is an example of no regulation
your example supports govt control, it doesn't dispute it
you call yourself realistic and you persist with a naive simplistic belief that the basics of economic history disprove?
dealing with you free market fundamentalists is like dealing with creationists
no logic or reason, just irrational faith in a really bad idea
resulting in exactly the kind of story we are commenting under
so apparently some still cannot learn, either the easy way from the simple facts of economic history, nor the hard way: from the subject matter of the very story they are commenting under
a diehard true believer. endearing? pathetic?
but they need to be heavily regulated by the government, obviously
it seems like the entire story of bitcoin has been heavily propeled forward by naive, enthusiastic free market fundamentalist types. ideological children
and now they are learning what the rest of us know from economic history, but apparently their gullibility means they have to learn the simple lessons of history the hard way

the venezuelan system doesn't work, and the people are organically angry about that, with the venezuelan govt
it has nothing to do with the usa
i don't know how or why you frame this as the usa doing something it did in the cold war, when all of the angry venezuelans on the street right now are in the street because of how fucked up the system is in venezuela is right now, because of something their own govt is screwing up. nothing to do with the usa at all
you don't really have any understanding of the situation in venezuela. you have the same tired old cold war thinking that the propaganda by the venezuelan government deploys. which, because as the existence of people like you show, still works as propaganda
but it has nothing at all to do with reality. the cold war is long over
