Remember when everyone bragged about how small their phone was?
A billion here. A billion there. Pretty soon you're talking about real money.
The USPTO's many failures to do its job are the major reason for the push behind patent reform. But, really -- why did Amazon spend so much time and money patenting a technique that has been in use by so many for so long? The USPTO would not have so many failures if companies like Amazon did not file frivolous patents. One wonders if Amazon web sites like Digital Photography Review will now start sending demand letters to photographers who use white backgrounds. I doubt...
Meanwhile, bad actors like Amazon continue to patent prior art. Amazon's latest stunt? Patenting photographs of people and objects with a white background. Apparently no one had ever thought of it before. Who knew? :/

 In other words, Jobs said that the price would be about the same as Amazon's. Only frothing-at-the-mouth control freaks would defend the government's use of anti-trust law to protect Amazon's monopoly.
And there you have it. Even complaining about the Department of Justice is now a criminal act.
These toads insist that all this government snooping is critical to the fight against terrorism.

Check those phone records to see who is being called by Republican fundraisers? You got it, Boss! Find out who the whistle blowers are? Right away! Check out who is posting anti-tax comments on the Internet? Sic the IRS, INS, FBI, NSA, BATF, and...
Uh, so Apple was called before a Senate subcommittee for obeying the law? A law that was written by these same senators? If the senators don't like it, they can change the law and stop blaming people for hiring good accountants and lawyers. "Any one may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one%u2019s taxes." %u2014 Learned...
Seems it would be easier to install a small Mylar fan folded up inside. The phone senses that it is falling and deploys the fan like a wing, slowing the fall. Or you could just get a case that puts a rubber edge all around the phone. But I don't want a phone that saves itself. I want a phone that saves me! The iPhone Emergency Rocket Pod and Ejection Seat! Press a button and I'm outta there!
