    Wasn't it spelled more like "m^m Nvidia" ?

    Is the concept of responsibility being thrown out of the window?

    You make mistakes, you fix them. Why is everyone else supposed to fix them for you.

    he was pretty snarky but more classy. You don't necessarily need swearing to convey sick burns.

    Twitter? You mean the social network that allows only MP4 video because that's what the iPhone supports?

    I love people here touting "Just conform to spec and deny anything that doesn't!"

    If they did that, nearly 50% of your USB stuff hooked to your computer right now would not work.

    It's just not reality. Some isn't even breaking spec, it's about ambiguity in the spec its self.

    It's a nice principle, but there's another one that also fits — garbage in, garbage out. Tolerating minor deviation from the spec is fair, but there's only so far you can go with that.
