On a related note, would somebody please enlighten me as I am genuinely interested in the following...   A number of times now, when I have described to friends how I prefer iOS over Android for its ecosystem, consistency across apps, ease of use, speed, etc., I have had Consumer Reports thrown in my face (as if that's the last (and only) word on the subject).   Was it ever shown that Consumer Reports was, in some way, influenced by the "Android Lobby"?   I do so...
No biggie. Just ask the NSA for a copy of your deleted mail!

It's not the fact that the devices are no longer made that is important here. It's the fact that the F and R in FRAND stand for Fair and Reasonable. If you want your patents to be included in a standard (effectively forcing everyone to use them), you must not be able to ban their use in an arbitrary and self serving manner. This is a strategy too often executed and it must be stopped. Industry-wide acceptance as a standard should entail industry-wide publication and...
