Comment Re:Lots of cheap housing in US, just not in San Fr (Score 1) 270

nonsense. would you expect to be able to afford an appartment in Beverly Hills, or the upper west side? or how about renting a room at the Connaught?

why not? because those places are fucking expensive.

guess what? San Francisco is fucking expensive too. want somewhere cheap to live? find somewhere else.

or sleep in your own shit on the streets in San Francisco and shoot heroin all day long.

right, but you know who might need that?

one of the largest ad networks on the planet? or maybe the 4th most popular video web site, with approximate 125M monthly visitors?

besides. the claim that you don't need a feature doesn't mean that your solution is significant. you didn't address any of the other things that you "solution" completely fails to address.

you're just digging yourself deeper into the hole here. your first post showed you clearly don't know what the fuck you're talking about. and you're not making it any better for yourself.

it's job security because if they took your advice and assumed they were smarter than everyone else and just went with what they thought would work... they would have failed abysmally. they would be assigned to cleaning the toilets while someone who knew what they were talking about was put in charge of actually doing it right.

yeah, that's fine if you want your video to work only sometimes, on some devices. and if you don't need pre-rolls, or interstitials, or playlists, or analytics, or you don't care about handling full-screen correctly, or adaptive bitrate.

pop quiz: which versions of firefox support h.264? which protocol suports bitrate streaming on google chrome on windows? on iPad?
