Comment Re:Is google's image format ICC capable? (Score 2) 249

Just because you've applied a 500kb colour profile to your image and your image program can understand it, does not mean a web browser needs to support such pointless user desires. The internet does not want to waste 50-500kb per image on colour profiles just so the image can print out a tiny bit more evenly on expensive high end printers. If it ever happens you can be happy living in a world where agenda driven lobby groups can make life more annoying for everyone just to make a few bucks. Should Chrome support 48bit, masked, live effects layered PSD too? but they look better on my computer...

"photographs will 'capture nothing different to what a customer would see" - which is what they'd say about visitors to your home and it is obviously way too far. The Google stance is dangerous direction, "why not" doesn't apply to everything in life and I can think of tons of reasons why not. More like, "we're creepy and we will push you until you break, then back off, then push again once you're not looking".

Ubuntu still using the arcane titles chosen by the coders for it's applications? Fail. e.g. Totem should be called "Video Player". Ubuntu is never going to be as good as it can be until all of the un-intuitive app names are changed to normal ones (an Alias is fine, keep it's original name in the About menu). Then it doesn't matter what apps are swapped in the back end, people don't care as long as "Video Player" is still there and it works. How long has this gone on for? yeah really.

Government funded social programs are not meant to make a profit, that would go against the whole point of subsidy. You know, giving money to something that can not afford to exist - human decency, paying a few bucks in tax to avoid seeing people die on the street on your way to work.
