Wall-E Supervising Animator Tells His Story

rgraham Re:Blew me away (228 comments)

> I fully expect this to just rake in its well-deserved awards.

I agree, but you know what sucks, is that an animated film, no matter how well received will ever be able to win an Oscar for Best Picture thanks to the creation of Best Animated Feature category by the Academy a few years ago. Having a separate category for documentaries makes sense to me, but splitting out animation and not action, romance, western, etc. does not.

NTP Sues Over Wireless Email Patents

rgraham rgraham writes  |  more than 4 years ago

rgraham (199829) writes "NTP, the same company that sued and eventually settled with RIM for $612.5 million over an IP dispute has now sued Apple, Google, HTC, LG, Microsoft and Motorola for infringement of wireless email patents. From the newswire:

Donald E. Stout, NTP's co-founder, said, "Use of NTP's intellectual property without a license is just plain unfair to NTP and its licensees. Unfortunately, litigation is our only means of ensuring the inventor of the fundamental technology on which wireless email is based, Tom Campana, and NTP shareholders are recognized, and are fairly and reasonably compensated for their innovative work and investment. We took the necessary action to protect our intellectual property.""

rgraham (199829) writes "From the article on Groklaw, "Apple apparently believes that somebody else is behind Psystar, which might help to explain why a major law firm would take on what seems like a fly-by-night's case; also why Psystar has been so bold in continuing to sell its products. I knew this thing felt funny. As Alice in Wonderland might put it, 'It gets interestinger and interestinger.'""

rgraham (199829) writes "It's that time or year again when Cringely reviews his 2007 predictions (61.5% correct) and makes new ones for 2008. His predictions for 2008 vary from the seemingly obvious, like Apple releasing a subnotebook, to the totally unexpected, such as Steve Ballmer retiring."
