Apple Well, this is interesting. Apple has released iOS 6 beta 4, and it removes one of the staples of iOS, included since its very first release with the first iPhone: beta 4 does not include the YouTube application. YouTube is owned by Google, so that could be an explanation. However, unless Google has its own iOS YouTube application ready, iOS 6 could lead to a lot of unhappy iPhone and iPad users. The large websites with sources inside Apple are probably hard at work trying to find out what's going on here - could just be a bug, or maybe a way to gauge public response by causing news sites and blogs to post about it. Huh. Update: thank god for sites with clout: The Verge confirms that Google is working on a stand-alone iOS YouTube application. Good news for users, since the stock one wasn't particularly good to begin with.

It's still the best codec out there [...] WebM is cute as a concept, but ridiculous. [...] Choosing WebM only shows ignorance of the standards out there.

Uhmm, yeah, so it's a standard thus it's the best? Or it's the best so it's a standard? Is webm a "concept"? Choosing webm makes one ignorant? Betteridge would say no to all that, and rightfully so ;)
