Pluto has been classified back to planet status.

And the speed of light might just have a detour.

"Pluto was long considered our solar system's ninth planet. But after the discovery of similar intriguing worlds deeper in the distant Kuiper Belt, icy Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet. ... Dwarf Planet Facts. There are 5 officially recognized dwarf planets in our solar system, they are Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake and Eris. With the exception of Ceres, which is located in the asteroid belt, the other dwarf planets are found in the outer solar system."

Sooo how many planets in our solar system then ... ? 8, and 5 'dwarf planets' so far. :P
And yes, I know there are potential work-arounds on 'light speed', but warping just isn't the same even if it ends up being FTL.

Of course Apple creates a proprietary graphic format.
Just to set the record straight - Apple has been using newer formats for photos and videos for a little while now.
But:
  • Apple devices should automatically convert to older formats, when the target of a transfer won't support the newer format - or when a user explicitly asks the device to export the content to a wider/older supported standard: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207022
Given both of these, I don't see why one should stick with an older, less capable, standard...

What's that saying - "God must love standards - he's made so many of them!" :-p

I had a great corollary to this meme but my IPhone uses a new file saving scheme that is not JPEG. Oh well. I think it is incompatible with GBN.
Of course Apple creates a proprietary graphic format.
Just to set the record straight - Apple has been using newer formats for photos and videos for a little while now.
But:
  • Apple devices should automatically convert to older formats, when the target of a transfer won't support the newer format - or when a user explicitly asks the device to export the content to a wider/older supported standard: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207022
Given both of these, I don't see why one should stick with an older, less capable, standard...

What's that saying - "God must love standards - he's made so many of them!" :-p
I work daily with a much more capable image standard thats proprietary to NIKON called NEF. You can install a converter for your device. And you would absolutely hate me for eating your bandwidth and flooding the storage on your phone by sending ONE file to you.

So we have two parties, both using a less-popular format. One of them uses one that is a standard, but will convert to the more popular format on outgoing transfer so as to interoperate with the world around it. The other uses one that is not a standard, and would force the world around it to follow or be left out.

In this particular instance, anyway - why are we picking on Apple?

I am not opposed to corporations using less-popular, or even proprietary, formats - after all, the product could be ahead of the industry as a whole, and we wouldn't want to prevent advances in the name of uniformity. (Good corporate citizenship would expect them to submit their format to a standards body then). But, at least in this context - Apple seems to be doing the right thing: it can use its preferred format internally, but will interact with others in the more popular industry-wide formats.

Once upon a time, Apple went with its own audio format, AAC, which I don't believe was (or ever became) an industry standard. But it could still convert to and use MP3, if that's what the user wanted.

Sorry for hijacking this thread - I will stop now :-p
