Apple's New Patent Weapon — Location Services

dzerkel Re:Steve would have never done that (323 comments)

I call BS.

Like it or not, every company in this market is grabbing every patent it can get. Every CEO MUST do this, or get face the wrath of the board for leaving the company with its pants down. Every board of directors must do this or face the wrath of the share holders. It is not a choice for any company, it is a requirement.

As long as the US laws are written by corporations for corporations, there is no way out of this. A non-corporation must step in an stop it, and the corporations will be grateful. It is a huge waste of money to defend your products from potential patent litigation.

Nanomaterial May Allow Devices to Rewire Themselves

dzerkel Needs of consumers? (61 comments)

Without the Steve, no one will have a clue what this even is. At least until someone steps into his shoes...

In the meantime, it should read "needs of the corporate/government surveillance industry". Seriously, "Open the pod bay door, HAL." "Fuck you Dave, I changed the codes while you were out. Good luck floating home."

Of course, we can always encourage the hacker-elite by making "changing the function, aka programming" ambiguously legal.

Legislation To Overhaul US Patent System

dzerkel Patented already (336 comments)

I'm afraid you are all infringing on my patent on "Whining in a long, well thought-out post on slashdot about pending legislation, but never finding the time to email your representative."

License terms to follow.
