OK, AAC failed. How about MT9? Commented on: 6 years ago (June 18, 2008) The big reason why AAC is used by Apple is because content control (aka DRM) schemes were written into the original design plans for the format. Ditto for WMA. The MP3 container format wasn't...
Fun with headlines: The 'this is way overdue edition' Commented on: 6 years ago (June 18, 2008) "Microsoft Videos is your central location for viewing rich media from Microsoft" I think the key here is the last 2 words in that statement. It doesn't appear to be "community-based" like Soapbox...

Notebook computer market share, Q1 2008 Commented on: 6 years ago (June 14, 2008) "Apple is beating out 8th place Asus by just 100,000 units. Asus, by the way, had even bigger year-over-year growth than did Apple." Funny you should mention that about Asus. If you actually look...

iPhone 3G's Achilles Heel is still AT&T Commented on: 6 years ago (June 12, 2008) So HSDPA is not the be-all-and-end-all of 3G for North America after all??? ;) Just to compare, what does an EVDO map of the US look like by comparison?
iPhone 3G: Price cut or price increase? Commented on: 6 years ago (June 11, 2008) "Rumours are that Rogers (I think they're the only carrier with a compatible network) will be charging $100/month here in Canada. If so, what a rip-off!" They already charge that now:...
