    The container was, but the codec was a Nokia/Sony/Bell/etc. creation.

    That's MPEG4 Audio, literally the newer version of MP3.

    What other audio formats do you refuse to use because you think Apple created them?
  • Yeah, Apple doesn't use DRM any more on music,...

    Yeah, Apple doesn't use DRM any more on music, they dropped the "Plus" branding for that reason.

    Problem is, older songs that pre-dated the DRM removal are now actually stuck with DRM, since they...
  • If anything it'll probably be watermarking, Apple...

    If anything it'll probably be watermarking, Apple has been against sticking DRM in music for a long time (2007 at the earliest), but they're not the ones who decide on the restrictions (Groups like...
  • It's just a probe, they haven't gotten into your...

    It's just a probe, they haven't gotten into your server (most likely)

    And if you're not running anything vulnerable (CGI, etc.) then they wouldn't be able to get in.
  • Most of the "cheap" 4K monitors aren't that...

    Most of the "cheap" 4K monitors aren't that impressive, the ones I saw all wanted HDMI (Being basically TVs) and were limited to 30fps. They're also quite large, which is certainly ok for the...

    Well yeah, that's happened with every other previous jump in resolution.

    The jump from 1280x1024 to 1920x1080 required me to upgrade my graphics card to get a good framerate, now that's standard.
  • No no, it's not torture, that's illegal! It's...

    No no, it's not torture, that's illegal!

    It's enhanced interrogation.
  • They're talking about tech that's still 5-10...

    They're talking about tech that's still 5-10 years out at this point, which makes perfect sense when you consider that they're planning their roadmap.

    4K hardware will be quite mature before we...

    It's different, nginx uses FastCGI instead of plain GCI, the name might be similar but they're implemented entirely different.
  • It's the latest threat of the moment, just a few...

    It's the latest threat of the moment, just a few weeks ago bikies were the ones destroying our society, now it's terrorists.

    The fact that it comes right after the government trying to introduce...

    How on earth does it have FLAC support but not M4A? They don't even need to ship the decoders (like FLAC) because it's supported natively by Windows and OS X.

    For some strange reason I get the feeling a customer didn't write that.
  • The only thing Apple own is the connector (Which...

    The only thing Apple own is the connector (Which is shared with DisplayPort), and that's offered on a royalty free licence.

    The main reason it hasn't caught on much is because Intel isn't pushing...
  • Pretty sure that would fall under the plain view...

    Pretty sure that would fall under the plain view doctrine (e.g. if they pull somebody over for speeding and smell drugs in the car they can totally arrest him for drug posession)
  • I don't believe that, what would stop police from...

    I don't believe that, what would stop police from handing over that type of evidence?
  • Intel tried ray tracing years ago, while it...

    Intel tried ray tracing years ago, while it provides very nice results the problem is that you can achieve 99% by doing normal rasterisation and it'll be a lot faster to do so (Where it breaks down...

    Our government is combating action on climate change, does that count?
  • You can still do that with polygons fairly easily...

    You can still do that with polygons fairly easily (Clips planes, CSG, etc.), it's just that it works better with voxels because they natively have a notion of an "inside", you can clip a voxel and...
  • Which I think is saying something about the...

    Which I think is saying something about the usefulness of this tech, nobody else wants to replicate it.
  • Haven't they been claiming it's a large...

    Haven't they been claiming it's a large breakthrough for half a decade at this point?
  • Yeah, Sony wants another PS2, not another PS3,...

    Yeah, Sony wants another PS2, not another PS3, it's to be expected and it isn't some kind of dire warning.
  • I'll be replacing my 570 with a 980 as soon as...

    I'll be replacing my 570 with a 980 as soon as reasonably possible.

    The improvements for real time GI and improved shadow map rendering is really exciting, along with the increased GPGPU...

    If they're searching for weapons and find something it's fine, if they're chatting to you in the living room and decide to rummage about in your drawers then it's not fine, etc.

    They need both a...

    Yep, lower quality than our SD TV broadcasts.
  • Pretty sure if the police come across something...

    Pretty sure if the police come across something while searching for evidence of another crime it's fair game, problem is in this case there wasn't another crime being committed.
  • Uh, pretty sure the PS4 is outselling the Xbone...

    Uh, pretty sure the PS4 is outselling the Xbone pretty much everywhere, no idea where you got the idea that the PS4 was a failure.

    The government ruled out changing it, but the law does state that words alone don't count as provocation.

    Maybe we should do something about that then instead of claiming the problem doesn't exist or doesn't matter.

    How is it proven wrong if there's still a 4.8%-7.1% pay difference for the same job?

    It might be better than it used to be, but it's still a problem.

    No, the point of net neutrality is to treat all traffic equally, not that all connections must be equal (If that makes any sense) They just have a better connection to the universities, they're not...

    It's in-engine with actual game content, the difference is that it's not real time (They turn everything up to 11 and render it to a much higher resolution backing store to avoid aliasing effects,...

    We should give ASIO access to all our emails and web/phone history, that's sure to stop it.

    Very first thing it did for me was make "swooshing" noises for a while, then it decided to start talking.

    Love how much weight it has to it, not just a cheap piece of plastic.

    JS has it's issues (Most of them down to how browsers implement stuff, but you've also got stuff like strings being UTF-16 so you get raw surrogate pairs), but memory isn't really one of them.

    This is an odd situation, wonder what caused the guy to decide out of the blue to send the DMCA (Considering that if he's right, it's been "infringing" since before he ever started contributing code)...

    That sounds odd to me, why would they be giving out keys that have a chance of already being used?

    Nah, never went before the courts, and the courts don't really have that kind of power.

    Nah, the government will ask why prices are so different, Valve will say "Because they are", and that would be the end of it.
