Sure, but what I find more interesting is that Apple also ironically created the most promising open web app platform, which may eventually undermine the App Store itself. [...] The iPad is the first mainstream device which combines all of the following factors: reasonably powerful hardware, a (potentially) huge user base, a mature WebKit implementation, and constant 3G internet capabilities. All the dominoes are in place, and I think that the iPad will knock the first one down."

Ogg was part of HTML5 standard candidate, as in :

"User agents should support Ogg Theora video and Ogg Vorbis audio, as well as the Ogg container format

But further to Apple's, and Nokia's objections it was removed

Show me where Ogg Theora is recognised as an industry standard and I'll accept it should be included by default in another (albeit draft) standard...
