I was watching an old keynote from 1999, and they were talking about Quicktime TV. What happened? I don't hear of it today...

So since Apple uses its own technology it must be doing well?

Honestly I don't see it anywhere else other than the odd site. Most sites use flash, java or some plug in. What is so undesirable about Quicktime VR? When was the last time Apple updated the VR publishing software?

It IS "alive and well"... I never said it was popular... VR for the web never became all that popular.

I remember a time when they said the web would evolve into a VR environment... in fact, there were VR web browsers. Surprise, surprise... they were never popular.

No, Apple hasn't updated their VR publishing software... but that may be due to the fact most digital cameras come with the software.
