Multimedia, AV "Addressing a major weakness its plan to build its WebM video technology into the Web, Google yesterday released a version of its VP8 video encoder and decoder designed to be baked into hardware. [...] The hardware implementation of VP8 is called H1 and now Anthill, said Aki Kuusela, engineering manager of the WebM Project, in a blog post. It comes in the form of RTL, or Register Transfer Language, a very low-level description close to how processors actually perform their instructions, and it's available royalty free."

So? Google is releasing software codecs and designs for hardware, which are both libre and gratis.

Free Code is free code is free code.

That they implement for their money making ventures doesn't prevent others from doing the same.

Google probably does have 10gig on me in their databases, and knows my spending habits, what sites I visit, and can track me to 10m using my Android phone; however, that conversation doesn't really have anything to do with VP8 hardware.

Also that Clayton definition page is useless.

Why use Urbandictionary when you have Wikipedia.
