C'mon guys. Wouldn't it make sense to take a moment and read up on a topic before standing in front of cameras and talking about it? I would go so far as to say that you have a smidgeon of responsibility to your viewers to inform yourselves, particularly if your going to pass judgment on someone's research by calling it quackery.
To be clear, a QUACK is defined a person who dishonestly claims to have special knowledge and skill in some field, typically in medicine.
I'm assuming you just didn't do your homework, so I'll provide you with a bit of information here:
The system I built uses depth information from the Kinect to translate the therapist's movements into imagery which is projected onto the client during a healing session. Both the client and practitioner wear video goggles so that they may see themselves from an out-of-body camera perspective. When face-down, clients use the face-cradle display to see themselves. The idea is that a person’s perception of pain is tied to subjective visual feedback.
Video is working for me although the fast foward doesn't seem to be working. The player starts to buffer the video and never plays again. I'll just have watch from the beginning again. That Vimeo version had horrendous PQ.
People need to chill the f*** out. If you're going to use Apple as the basis for comparison, then consider that they have only a few models to worry about and that they build the hardware themselves. They can skip the entire certification process that Microsoft has to go through with OEMs. Since Apple also operates its own retail channel (Apple Stores), they can practically skip the carrier certification process too. If Apple sends out an update that bricks their devices, you bring the device into an Apple Store. The carriers don't have to worry about it. With Windows Phone 7 devices (and Android devices for that matter), you have to bring the device back to the carrier's retail outlets.
If you feel waiting for the update process is unbearable, get yourself to an Apple Store and go buy yourself an iPhone. You can choose from the wide selection of models: from the 3.5" display model to the 3.5" display model or from the model without hardware keyboard to the model without hardware keyboard.
See my point? There is no such thing as a free lunch. If you want complete freedom of choice in terms of hardware (like Android), then you have to wait for the OEM decide when (or IF) they're going to update the device.
If you're willing to give up any choice of hardware in favor of quick updates to the OS, then go with Apple's offering.
If you want something in between (a decent selection of hardware from a handful of manufacturers but a consistent UX), then you go with Windows Phone 7. But you have to understand that updates will NEVER come as fast as Apple's updates. However, you can be damn sure that you will be getting the updates, something that's no guarantee with Android devices.
lol, all browsers except IE have moved away from closed source video codecs. microsoft bought a H.264 license (suckers!) and now they are realizing they bought a dying horse, ah sweat justice or karma (if you're into that)
Did you forget Safari? Besides, IE will support both H.264 and WebM, so who cares?
And Microsoft didn't just "buy" a H.264 license. It's a member of pool of patent owners for the technology. The pool consists of a who's who list of technology companies:
Apple Inc. DAEWOO Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute France Télécom, société anonyme Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V. Fujitsu Limited Hitachi, Ltd. Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V. LG Electronics Inc. Microsoft Corporation Mitsubishi Electric Corporation NTT docomo Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation Panasonic Corporation Robert Bosch GmbH Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. Scientific-Atlanta Vancouver Company Sedna Patent Services, LLC Sharp Corporation Siemens AG Sony Corporation Ericsson The Trustees of Columbia University in the City of New York Toshiba Corporation Victor Company of Japan, Limited
Gee, where's Google? Do you really think Google would be pushing WebM if they were part of that pool of patent owners?
