H.264 isn’t just for iTunes Music Store videos any more. More companies are looking to use Apple’s QuickTime technology to showcase their products and services and one of the major reasons is the H.264 open-standard video codec.
 
One of the biggest adopters is AccuWeather, the weather-forecasting service. AccuWeather has adopted the H.264 standard to produce weather videos throughout the day so users can follow weather patterns, storms or a particular city.

Digital rights management (DRM) technology has deep flaws despite the hope of content providers that encrypted files will deter illegal file sharing, a computer security researcher said Monday.
 
DRM is a catch-all term for a variety of methods used to limit content sharing. Techniques include digital encryption of songs and encoded limits on the number of times content can be accessed. But DRM technologies are far from foolproof, and the ones developed so far have been easily circumvented by adept

Apple Computer has sharply criticized a pending French law that, if passed, would require all online music stores to open their services to any type of media player.
 
If Apple were to comply with the law, its iTunes store in France would have to be changed to allow downloads to multiple devices rather than just the company's proprietary iPod player.

Although the law has yet to be approved by France's senate, its easy passage through the country's national

French lawmakers have hit the pause button on the iPod, voting to force Apple to make its downloads work on all digital players and not just the US firm's worldwide best-selling device.
 
Amid French concerns about US firms taking the lion's share of the massive market, the lower house of parliament on Tuesday passed a bill that could shut down Apple's online music store, iTunes, in France.

Microsoft's decision to delay the consumer versions of Windows Vista until early 2007 could encourage some holiday computer buyers to get Macs instead, industry analysts say.
 
"This gives Apple the biggest competitive advantage they've had in history from Microsoft," veteran technology consultant Rob Enderle, founder of the Enderle Group, said of the delay announced earlier Tuesday by Jim Allchin, co-president of Microsoft's Platform and Services Division.

Allchin told a hastily convened teleconference that Microsoft would release volume-licensed versions of Vista

Apple Computer Inc. said on Tuesday a proposed French law that would force Apple to make sure that songs bought on its iTunes music store can work on any portable player would result in "state-sponsored piracy."
 
"The French implementation of the EU Copyright Directive will result in state-sponsored piracy," said Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris. "If this happens, legal music sales will plummet just when legitimate alternatives to piracy are winning over customers."

The National Assembly, France's lower house of

The campus of Georgia College & State University boasts traditional college fare — spacious greens, historic architecture and a steady stream of students with the familiar white headphones of iPods dangling from their ears. But here in the antebellum capital of Georgia, students listening to iPods might just as well be studying for calculus class as rocking out to Coldplay — after the school's educators worked to find more strategic uses for the popular digital music and video players.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on Friday launched a new e-filing system that allows patents to be submitted online. Unlike the previous online system, the new PDF-based e-filing system features complete support for Mac OS X.
