Google I didn't plan on this, but there's really nothing I can do. Unless you want me to write about the upcoming ten billionth download from the iOS App Store, you'll have to settle for this. On the Chromium blog, Google has clarified its decision to drop H.264 support from the Chrome web browser, and in it, Google basically repeats the things that those concerned about the future of video on the web have been saying for a long time now: H.264 on the web kills innovation.

I don't really understand this line of thinking. It's like asserting unless something is perfect it's useless to be better. I really cannot fathom what reasonable thought process can reach such conclusion. I mean, we're not talking about religions and theology and virgin Mary or whoever. It's about technological evolution.

Attack on hypocrisy is warranted if self-righteousness gained by hypocrisy is actively exploited but I don't really see that at this point. Exploitation of self-righteousness is much more prevalent on apple's arguments these days.

That said, no matter what, what's better is better and perfection is enemy of good. Don't let puristic ideas reject something better.
