[rtcweb] VP8 IPR agreement announced.
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, March 07 2013 @ 10:32 PM EST

In a post to the RTC Web working group, Google's Serge Lachapelle notes that today's agreement is "not an acknowledgment" that VP8 infringes on any of the patents claimed by MPEG LA. Rather, he says, this deal removes the legal cloud that was holding some third parties back: "The purpose of this agreement is meant to provide further and stronger reassurance to implementors of VP8."

Apple’s Phil Schiller trash-talking Android for malware: ‘Be safe out there’

Is this the Apple version of the MS "scroogled" campaign?
Seriously? Linking to the f-secure "unbiased" report ?

IBM CEO Rometty Says Big Data Is the Next Great Natural Resource
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, March 08 2013 @ 12:06 PM EST

s-the-next-great-natural-resource.html

Translation: IBM wants us to go back to thin terminals backed by big metal
servers.

Personally, I prefer being able to run a fully-equipped server on my PHONE. And
having it pack more processing power than a 1980s mainframe.

Yeah, big metal servers, "cloud computing"... Yeah right. Unless I'm
doing something like DNA folding or high-grade graphics/physics, give me a
Raspberry PI with a decent monitor/keyboard/mouse and I have enough computing
power for my day-to-day needs.

And if I'm doing that high-grade stuff, I'm pretty sure a cluster built on R-PIs
would do the job, unless I'm doing something that parrallelises well, when I'd
want a CUDA processor.
