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."

Are you saying that Google is funding it's R&D through the only means by which they make money? Hot damn, stop the presses. You've got the scoop of the century there, old boy.

and how many billions of dollars do Google make by stealing it?


It must hurt that they're making more than Apple, eh?

Also, I guess since Clayton's a guy you'd like to hold on to forever we should consider WebM to be totally awesome. Thanks for clarifying.

I don't think they are making more than Apple, however I agree with your assessment of Clayton and WebM.
