Comment Re:No Apple (Score 4, Informative) 98

These companies aren't going to drop support for Apple's devices. They're going to serve both H.264 and the new free codec --- to support old not-upgraded devices, as well as Apple devices. So if Apple doesn't join the party, the main impact will be that iPhones need twice as much bandwidth as Android phones to play video.

This announcement is terrific news for free codecs. We've been fighting for this at Mozilla for a long time and now it looks like we have a good chance of winning.

Sorry to break it to you, but "fox news" is not some magic word that dismisses all the crimes committed by the people you worship.

Hillary Clinton has violated the espionage act, and other statutes relating to securing public records. She has knowingly attempted to destroy evidence. She has lobbied for foreign interests in exchange for millions of dollars paid into her family slush fund. She may or may not do time for it, depending on whether the Obama regime thinks they can get away with ignoring it.

She is a crook, and that simple fact would remain, even if Fox News had never existed.

We Germans will not accept that the victims are further humiliated by the denial of the holocaust.

Speaking as one of the people that the Nazis would have killed if they'd had the chance: fuck you. You don't honor the victims of the holocaust by outlawing any kind of speech. When nazis lie about their crimes, you speak up and report the truth.

If we (the U.S.) had any sense we'd do the same thing with the KKK and symbols of the Confederacy

So, you're claiming that overruling the first amendment is a "sensible" thing to do? Maybe it's just as sensible to forcibly shut YOU up, since you're obviously hostile to our tradition of free speech, you un-American traitor. By your own "logic", you have no grounds to object.
