Apple Transfers Patents Through Shell Company To Sue All Phone Makers

Basehart Re:Why now? (422 comments)

* - Yep, you develop for them, notice how your hard work resulted in their successful ad campaign "There's an app for that"

Oh please, give me a break. Most developers I know do it to make money (and have fun at the same time in many cases). It's like the old "I gave this country thirty years of service, and what did it give to me." line. How about a paycheck every two weeks, free or heavily subsidized health care and a pension for the rest of your life!

Basehart Re:Why now? (422 comments)

"And it's perfectly legal." I often wonder for how long? The patent system is so broken it's unbelievable.

White House Wants New Copyright Law Crackdown

Basehart Re:Scarier is wiretap (652 comments)

I guess if I went out of my way to steal and re-distribute stuff that isn't mine I'd feel threatened by this too.

Beware the Garden of Steven

Basehart Re:Open Alternative to the Mac App Store (580 comments)

I remember a friend of mine moaning that Apple's original iDisk service was running on servers provided by the company he worked for, but nobody would know it because it was invisible to the user. He felt that Apple was trumpeting a cloud based storage solution without actually providing the service from within Apple.

Is that the kind of control of a product space you are referring to, branding a cloud based solution as if it were of their own making without even needing to acquiring, rip off, or otherwise replacing the existing solution?

Meg Whitman Campaign Shows How Not To Use Twitter

Basehart If I was a Politician (147 comments)

I'd rather be endorsed by a bespectacled, long-haired Japanese man in a tutu and leggings rocking out on a bass guitar than a police association any day.

Basehart Finders Keepers Extended Version (1204 comments)

Finders keepers, losers weepers...unless the finder blabs to the whole world he found it and proceeds to take it apart and publish the photos, and the loser is Steve Jobs.

Lithium In Water "Curbs Suicide"

Basehart Budweiser Lith? (458 comments)

I wonder if that's where the Lith, sorry Lite, comes from in bottom corner beers like Bud, Miller Etc? Maybe it's just me but after a couple of "real" beers from Seattle's own Maritime Breweries and Baron Etc I feel ready to rock, but after a couple of Buds I feel like going to sleep!

Hearst To Launch E-Reader For Newspapers

Basehart Newspapers to .com the sooner the better (143 comments)

As an avid reader of Seattle's soon to be discontinued Post-Intelligencer newspaper (another Hearst venture) I'd be thrilled to see an internet version continue on and one day appear on their large format e-reader. As much as I like to read the paper I've never been into the sheer volume of raw materials needed to produce them, yet the online format is restricted by the frame and controls on my web browser and the size of my laptop screen. One thing is for sure - any newspaper that goes Internet only before this depression kicks in will be reaping the rewards when papers who currently rely on print as their main source of distribution fall by the wayside, which they surely will.

I hope Steve is hard at work recording some video clips to be played Hari Seldon style at Disney theme parks every year for the rest of eternity.

IE Market Share Drops Below 70%

Basehart Re:You'll see WAR (640 comments)

Too little too late. They dropped the ball so hard with Vista it's still causing ripples that are just now reaching IE.
They need to go completely different to get back up to speed.

"Dark Flow" Outside Observable Universe

Basehart Re:It's Obvious (583 comments)

Maybe our universe is slowly making its way through god's intestines, only to end up in a vast heavenly toilet bowl one day.

Yawn...on that note I'm off to bed.
