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

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
