Please don't call this fuzzy logic. Fuzzy logic is a generalization of traditional logic (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuzzy_logic) It is deterministic and NOT inherently random. Sure, you can add randomness to it, but adding randomness does NOT make something fuzzy logic.

Comment: Hardware Encoders (Score 5, Insightful) 459 459

The best reason I have seen so far as to why Apple/Google favor H.264 is because their current products have H.264 hardware encoders in them. Switching to ogg/theora would hit battery life hard in these devices since it would have to be done in software. While I agree that its a selfish reason, its a reason better then "cause we want it". I would really like to see Theora succeed though, an open standard for web would be a beautiful thing
