Internet & Networking Ever since it became clear that Google was not going to push WebM as hard as they should have, the day would come that Mozilla would be forced to abandon its ideals because the large technology companies don't care about an open, unencumbered web. No decision has been made just yet, but Mozilla is taking its first strides to adding support for the native H.264 codecs installed on users' mobile systems. See it as a thank you to Mozilla for all they've done for the web.

Banning Samsung Galaxy products prevents customers from buying and then using them. To me that seems like a very good thing for customers as they're pretty horrible products.

I cannot agree with you for two reasons:
* People should be allowed to decide for themselves if they want to buy Samsung devices. You, on the other hand, are advocating the idea here that your preference is more important than theirs.
* I own a Galaxy Note and I personally find it exceedingly good, much better than anything else I've laid my hands on.

Next time I'll add a winking smiley, even though I'm not a smiley person.

But on a more serious note, I have recently come in to contact with a few Samsung phones and as my employer threw the BlackBerries out of the windows I now have a WP7 phone (Nokia Lumia 800).

Now I know how others systems work I can say, from my personal experience/view/preferences, that Android and WP7 just don't come anywhere near iOS. Although I must say WP7 (on the Lumia) is as fast as something that's very fast. But I'd never buy one, because for the rest is a big disappointment.
