Google Earlier this year, Google finally did what many of us hoped it would do: release the VP8 codec as open source. It became part of the WebM project, which combines VP8 video with Vorbis audio in a Matroshka container. The product manager for the WebM project, John Luther, gave an update on the status of the project - and it's doing great.

You missed one word in your statement. Let me rephrase it for you: Headline ambiguity is a standard part of *poor* journalism.

Knickers.

The colloquial Strine saying is "don't get your knickers in a twist".

As for panties, apparently according to the kiwis one must not get them in a knot:

That happens when you fall victim to yellow journalism, where the use of ambiguous headlines for the purpose that you describe is known to be common.
