Podcasts Back in August of 2009, the OSnews team spent 3 full hours discussing Apple. In the course of discussion, we spent some time talking about the then-mythical "Apple Tablet." So, 5 months later, how did we do? Were we accurate in our predictions? How did you envision the Tablet, long before the nonsensically named "iPad" became a reality? This clip, which I've called "Episode 20.x" and inserted into cannon retroactively, is pulled, unaltered, from the original podcast.

"Web developers, the choice is yours. Are you ignorant and short-sighted, or are you willing to make a stand for keeping the web open, and finally breaking video loose from its proprietary shackles?"

Sound familiar? I understand that you are volunteering and that time is limited but OSNews looks like its being run by hypocrites when rants are published about other websites using proprietary formats despite the fact the OSNews continues to do the same.

If time is short and you don't have time for both, why not publish Ogg Vorbis only? If you want to give users a cleaner way to transcode to something else you could publish FLAC only. It's getting tiresome to read the several articles dealing with Youtube ignoring patents when OSNews does the same.
