For anyone who didn't bother to read the last article the gist of it is
that to play back videos from your iPod to an external device you can
either buy the expensive shiny white Apple cable, or you can use any
Radio Shack AV cable and (drumroll) switch the yellow and red plugs
around.

It really makes me despair of the future of open standards - even if you
have a perfectly good one the marketing dept will INSIST that you be
incompatible for no reason. This belief that proprietary == good is
really ingrained in some places. For example I saw an episode of "24"
the other day (guilty pleasure ;-) and they had to hack into some
corporate network to stop some terrorists, and were stymied by the
network being "proprietary" which meant it was unhackable and they had
to give up and just blast their way in, or some crap.

Of course any IT person could tell you in a second that black hat
hackers LOVE proprietary systems. Then again the shows main sponsors
seem to be Dell computers and Cisco IP phones... coincidence?
