An update on the iPlayer situation, after the beeb apparently was trying to avoid committing to a download service for Linux and Mac OSX.
The BBC must deliver an online TV catch-up service that lets users of all computers download programmes, the corporation’s regulators have said.
A good example of where regulation can be a good thing.
Lets hope this can bring longer term benefits to non-Windows platforms as they get a higher level of attention from some pretty clever tech folk at the beeb.
Now if only this wasn’t restricted to UK residents!
