I don't disagree that HTML is living. But I think the industry needs a standardization process whereby every few years we say we're ready for the next generation.We're still a couple years away before HTML5 is actually, formally done. It seems to me that if you're a consumer electronics company, you're not going to wait until 2014 to support the HTML video tag [which enables streaming video]. There's still a pretty big disconnect between the rate at which the standardization process works and the rate at which the technology gets adopted. People in effect do complete with incomplete versions of the standard because they have to.
People experiment in the Web, The Web would slow down tremendously if people waited to final standards before implementing, Prefixes are one of the many ways we encourage innovation in the Web, There's a balance, There's work to update the HTML video tag and audio tag so you can use DRM copy protection but you wouldn't need a browser plug-in for it, What's your take on building DRM into a W3C standard?We have a couple of very fundamental rules within W3C about what we accept and don't accept, One we accept is all our specs are prepared and provided on a royalty-free basis, That one is cast in concrete, Any new recommendation has to follow that as well, If anybody wants to have a DRM recommendation, it would have to be royalty-free, It's not the case we have any rule in the W3C process which prevents a DRM idea, That certainly makes it possible for W3C stakeholders to provide use cases and requirements, The Web and TV interest group several months ago put in some requirements, They did not put in a requirement for DRM, but they require for APIs [application programming interfaces] to make it possible to add DRM, Those are provided to the HTML working group, The group iphone x clear barely there case is now debating the use case and requirements, There's nothing in our Bible that would prevent that..
From a patent perspective, DRM can be quite similar. We can have interfaces to patented technology and we won't standardize the underlying patented technology until the owners of that technology releases those patents. Google has released VP8 as royalty-free. What's standing in way of adopting VP8 for HTML5 royalty-free video?No company has brought VP8 to W3C for standardization. One thing that came out at W3C is Boot to Gecko, and Mozilla's partnership with Telefonica to use that browser-based OS. And Deutsche Telekom and Qualcomm are helping. How mature does that need to be for to call it a success in the real world?You have to measure success on a number of criteria. It's an illustration of the success of a Web platform which people can build on top of. From that early-indicator perspective it's a success. They're just getting tarted in terms of productization, so it's fair to say it's not yet a market success. At the end of the day that's how the industry does tend to measure success.
Do you think B2G will improve Web programming even if the Web programs run in an actual browser on a native OS, not just a browser-based OS?Sure, What people like about the Web is it is the most interoperable platform, It's open, it's not controlled by anybody, It's not controlled by W3C, It's controlled by the industry, by all of us, That appeal is unstoppable, There are lots of reasons to do native apps, I don't think I ever said that native is going away, But the number of things you can do in an interoperable fashion keeps growing, The allure of writing software once, having it run everywhere, having it be interoperable, having it be open -- that's what developers want to do, That's what a lot of companies want to do iphone x clear barely there case as well, It's not just Web video, There's work we're doing at the W3C on device APIs [an interface with hardware such as cameras and battery status], consumer electronics, geolocation, privacy -- there's a lot going into the Web platform, Hundreds of companies are participating, Large numbers of companies are joining W3C every year..
Yes, that's an announcement announcing when an announcement will be announced. Good thing we're so excited about the S3, or we'd think that was pretty sad. The latest reports suggest the S3 will launch in April. Samsung refuses to either confirm or deny this, but has said in a tweet that it will announce the date on Twitter. You can follow Samsung on Twitter, @samsungtomorrow. Or if you don't read Korean, keep your eyes glued to CNET for all the latest news on the S3, and every exciting new mobile phone development.
