They say that imitation is the best form of flattery
We have been delivered bucketloads of it during the recent end-of-year festivities -
copycat "silver label" television marketing campaigns from Waitrose, Morrison's &
Tesco - apeing the equisite televisual experience of the M&S FOOD adverts
a significant proportion of AUDI's - 9621 A6 patents -
dedicated to their iPod-like Multi Media Interface (MMI)
the Instant Search, Sidebar Gadgets & "porcelain option" for the 3D Chess game of
Microsoft's NEW desktop interface for the VISTA operating system - which consists of
50 million lines of code, has been 5 years in the making & is being promoted with the
strap-line CLEAR, CONFIDENT, CONNECTED - ALL of which is reminiscent of, as well
as a particular credit to, Apple's own Tiger version of its OS X operating system -
and yet in consideration of all of the above there remains -NO better standard than a standard that is established as a
It is only in relatively recent times that the original underlying IBM patented laser technology and SONY's Soloman & Reid chipset have evolved into BLU-RAY - which is itself a superset of this set of standards and Apple's preferred HD standard for use with its H.264 video compression codec under MPEG-4 Part 10 ratification - and promises the FINAL opportunity of personal on-the-move read/write storage - capable of realtime simulation of anything & everything which HOMO SAPIENS can percieve.
FINAL from the point of view that - in the same way that HOMO SAPIENS cannot "hear" the frequency emitted by a dog whistle - HOMO SAPIENS has built in limits of perception and brain bandwidth of approximately 500MB/second - such that more than a 256 grey scale, 16.9 million colour, 30 frames per second 1080i HDTV signal can NOT be resolved.
Apple will start the year with a new product line that introduces the next stage of evolution of its iPod. This is likely to be a hybrid music player and mobile - possibly videophone - offering business and leisure uses which will compete with Cisco Systems recently launched iPhone.
As an LG Hybrid HD DVD / BLU-RAY player is today announced & others talk about the media being able to incorporate both standards we @ zaadz are most certainly witnessing the falling into place of the last few pieces of the 1000 piece jigsaw.
To quote Ken Wilber -
Since humanity today, armed with video-cameras, will never get a new supply of fresh, believable myths - of Moses parting the Red Sea, or Jesus born from a biological virgin, or Lao Tzu being 900 years old when he was born, and so on - the world's great mythic-religious systems are a precious human resource, the only ones speaking to those unavoidable stages of human growth - THAT ARE NOT GOING AWAY - & thence religion alone, of all of humanity's endeavours, can serve as the great "conveyer belt" for humanity and its stages of growth.
Simplictically concieved as a conveyor belt of implementation in fact - of the STANDARDS of -
In the context of ALL that has been raised in the Second Tier thread - and the many many others which have been planted from the seeds of our minds - IS that NOT the mechanism which we @zaadz are trying to establish to change the world ?
