Apple The beauty of the internet is such that every opinion has become worthless; this goes doubly so for those with publish buttons on (relatively, we're humble) major websites. For every opinion, there's a matching counter-opinion, and that's great. Yesterday, we linked to an article by Mark Pilgrim about tinkerers and the iPad, and of course, someone was bound to disagree with that one.

They are even targetting web content providers, via the ploy: "if you use Flash or HTML5/Theora, you won't get iPad users, so use HTML5/h264 instead (and BTW pay us a royalty, but not Adobe)".


Well this is at least a much more valid concern than a perceived war against curiosity.

If your goal is Theora adoption then you certainly don't want to see the iPad become popular. However I think the blame here really lies with Google since portable video devices will be built to decode whatever YouTube uses.
