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.

"WebM, arguably, doesn't solve anything....just another solution to a non-existant problem, imho.

And I thought you were actually trying to engage in a debate over the issue... If you are content with sticking your fingers in your ears and screaming LA-LA-LA-LA then I am fine with ignoring you.

Let me know if you change your mind.
Whether one is using an Android device or an iPhone, I would assert that the best available video experience is due to the availability of hardware-accelerated H.264. Unless anyone can make a compelling argument for WebM as a replacement now.....not in some imaginary future...well....Hmmm..
