Apparently this is another proprietary codec. Brendan Eich considers this unimportant because "consumers" won't get sued for using the browser, but it leaves people who want to participate (by encoding their own material) my have the same limitations that h.264 users do - no participating unless you pay the Intellectual Property Poll-Tax.
It sounds like they're still in "discussions" about the licensing of the codec itself. Unfortunately I'm not too confident that Mozilla is concerned much about that these days - they seem to be starting to fall into the same "consume-only" mindset that Microsoft, Apple, and Google seem to these days...
What I think most people are worried about are false-positives. I don't want my front door destroyed, my friendly dog shot to death, and my reputation smeared because some doofus with a drone mistakenly ended up identifying the infrared signature of my heated fish tank as a "growing operation" inside the house, for example.
Bingo. Hence the "no resale, renting, lending, letting other people touch, etc." provisions in their "agreement" - this device appears to be intended to "train" users to be happy sending all of their information to Google, but this requires Google to be able to always "know" who is using which device at all times in order for the data to be fully useful to them (for "personalization", of course.)
In other words, this is like Facebook(tm), but even more so (and you have to pay $1500 for the honor of feeding Google's files on your behavior, which helps the illusion that THEY are giving YOU something, and not vice-versa.)
I'm not going to wade through the entire 74 pages of opinion right now, but at a glance this does sort of look like "judicial activism" - nice to see such a thing happening in a "pro-human" manner more than "pro-corporate" for once, but it suggests we really need to be hitting Congress a lot harder to try to get this mess corrected.
Does it REALLY cost so much to design the tablets with GPS? Nexus tablets don't seem to have a problem doing it without being expensive...
