Default Why are blue skys usually so poor?

Hi, I have noticed that in the sample photos given for most cameras on this site, a clear blue sky is often damaged with color stepping and stippling.

Is this a consequence of the jpeg compression or of the cameras CCD?

Either way, as a lot of people take landscape photos (myself included), why does the manufacturer not worry about this?

Thx, El

sasc has one possible explaination: the other likely one is your own set-up. If you have your color depth set lower than 24 bit you can see that effect.
