Wasted so much time on the format war

No more!
MP3, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, Opus, MPEG4, WebM, VP9, WebP, JPEG2000...

I'm tired of fighting windmills.
I just use the one that is offered by most devices. At the moment it may be MP3 for audio. 320kbps should be okay.
For Video... I can't even care for other than MPEG4. I mean come on... the same with JPG. It's horrible, but that's the format almost all consumer devices are using.
I can't just go and say I want a WebP camera. There is no such thing. And how many cams are there recording in VP9?

Sorry, I'm out of steam. The industry won, and the patent-free, OSS community lost.
I fought on for years, and I had only frustration and problems from it. I focused on the format, instead of the content.

No more... I'm too weak to fight for the users, I can barely fight for myself...

Watching Saekano


Saekano - How to raise a boring girlfriend.flat is the second season of this series. It's so tempting to see an anime about anime and game designer. It's like a works in their own world. Cool.

Solar Charger only 4 days left: Get ready for Pokémon Gym restart

What do you need more than battery power for playing Pokémon Go? Nothing.

But Pokémon Player or not, Stack Social has a great offer


But there's only 4 days left to snap one and save over 70%.
The integrated solar panel gives you some extra power in addition to the 5000mAh capacity.

I always have at least one battery pack with me. There is no such thing like "enough phone battery" :)

Grab it right here from Stack Social.

A busy week

Oh dear, we ar at that point again, where I have to collect my tweets together on my blog. Geez, that is almost retro.
But since I have completely failed to use my blog the last week, here are my crap I posted on twitter (hey, it's my right to post as much crap as I want):







And that's my favorite retweet this week:

Playing "Life is Strange"


A Square Enix game for free with PlayStation plus this month. Finally a good game for some month in plus? That would be great.

Copyright claim filed on Google I/O 2017

A company called Time Inc. claimed copyright on my coverage of the Google I/O 2017 (use this link instead). On a spoken sequence. Yelp, no music, but on spoken words. Of course I disputed it, because that is fair use IMHO.
Interestingly on my other channel the same recording was claimed and then released without me doing anything.
What a mess on YouTube's copyright management where everyone can just file a claim with no merit.
I hope the dispute will be successful quickly.

Watching Danchigai 🍙


I know I'm watching a lot of animes recently.
This one's called Danchigai and is only about 3 1/2 minutes per episode. Strange.
But it's somehow nicely drawn and an interesting story. It really should be a full prime-time series.

Watching Alice & Zoroku


Interesting anime. Story is something new, and visually good and unusual.
First episode is made up like a little movie and double the length of a normal episode. Also very interesting and nice to hook you into the story.
