[Oliver Peters] "And please don't bring up Apple and STANDARDS in the same sentence ;-) Apple has never expressed any interest in adhering to any actual sanctioned standards."


Funny, I kinda remember driving RS-232 and 422 decks 10 years ago out of FCP. Those weren't "standards?" (I won't belabor the point with a dozen other easy similar audio and graphics standards examples, (cough) AIFF, TIFF, ... oh never mind ;.)

I will admit that Apple has a penchant for doing their own "standards" development in-house.

With all the IP wars going on between the monster companies these days (hello KODAK!) I'm thinking that's been a pretty darn smart long-range strategy.
