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...
