Lol the guy shoulda started a company himself. Maybe name it after a fruit and wear a black turtleneck with jeans to its IPO... With products he descirbed... 20 years ago that would have been a great company, today people would just dismiss him for copying apple...

The guys is simply a paranoid schizophrenic .

I've conversed with a few of them and they all sound exactly like this.

You joke about it but it's a terrible illness.He probably is on and off meds (many do this).

The problem with delusion is you don't know it's delusion so you stop taking meds as they are (not really what they are but poison) or you actually desire the manic buzz from insanity.

Could you imagine living like that? This guy actually believes these things happened!

A constant roller coster of crazy drama.

poor slob Take your meds dude?

Not a chance. Even a lunatic wouldn't admit to that.

His website is http://cooltvnetwork.com/

He met Sarah Jessica Parker in 1989 when she presented his award for a pencil drawing.

The FBI responded that they could not locate the records he requested.

What, when she was 24 years old? Not likely!

That clipping was an exhibit from his complaint. And if you're wondering how a pencil drawing self portrait could possibly show that he invented the iPod, here it is:



Yes, this guy really was a genius - way ahead of his time. You can see why the FBI confiscated his works in the interest of national security.

Rather shameful reporting on someone who is quite obviously mentally ill.

I don't especially as their crazy actions are taking away money that could have gone into R&D or even wages has to be used to deal with them. This totally is a prime example why the US so badly needs tort reform so nutty lawsuits like are stopped dead.

Ugh! you can tell this is all fake.
He's basically naming all the apple products except for atleast a couple.

I believe this is untrue and just non-sense.
Apple succedded in it anyways..

It is not my web site but if the people that do own AI want to keep publishing, I'm simply suggesting that they be more careful about how they group stories together. Clearly the two stories covered here are not on the same level of possibility nor rationality.

It is especially important to understand this in the context of the movie and music industries were people are often not paid what they expect to get. What I'm saying is that these law suits are vastly different and trying to link one to another is not in AIs best interests.

Tourette's people don't always blurt out profanities. Vocal tics can also take the form of coughs or grunts. But the question stands: why profanity? We'll see this in stroke patients too, sometimes. Left hemispheric stroke -> language deficits -> trouble with expressive language, but a lot of damns. The commonly given explanation is that profanity is over-learned. If you'd counted up the number of times you'd said each word in your lexicon, the profanity would end up being embarrassingly higher than other words (not many choices, and a lot of opportunities to use them). But there are cases where the patient reportedly never swore and yet it happens. So that explanation seems to fall short. Another reason is that our profane words tend also to be short and explosive, matching their use. So they're also some of the easiest words to use, for someone who is struggling to say something. (That would be strokes, of course. Tourette's people obviously aren't 'struggling to say something.' They're often struggling not to, and it happens anyway. What they do isn't quite involuntary, and it isn't quite voluntary. The urge to yield to the tic is involuntary; the act of actually doing it is voluntary. It's just that the urge cannot be withstood forever, and it gets worse the longer you fight it).

It sounds like Mr. Wakefield has his actors mixed up. Wouldn't the story be more believable is it we Micheal J Fox and the movie was Back to the Future? Since when did SJP have Steve Job's ear when it comes to product development? She did use an Apple notebook in Sex and the City but I doubt that even Woz would visit the set let alone Jobs. Good try but I don't see the connection.

I was making a joke, but I was also curious, so thanks for taking the time to reply.

On the idea of most common words that would fall to adjectives, prepositions, and conjnctions, like the, of, to and and. And even two, too and to are common making the vocalization even more common, so frequency of usage cant be the reason.
http://www.world-english.org/english500.htm The idea of exclamations being the factor is interesting, but there are lot of exclamations that arent swear words. Like danger, get out, help, watch out, fore.

If it is something in way taboo words are stored and the disorder someone taps into that, then I have to wonder what the syndrome would have been like 100 years ago, or 1000 years ago when the words were very different. I wonder if there is any recorded evidence of this.

So the guy's website features the bastard spawn of a Teletubby and Howard the Duck, inviting you to plunge into a network enabled toilet.

Doing so gets you a patent claim that appears to cover Skype, iTunes, Ebay, Hulu and pretty much any and all internet commerce.

It's a mighty invention indeed that simultaneously involves clicking on hot spots, shopping, bidding, video streaming, media storage, telephony, and, I guess, "doing stuff online."

I look forward to seeing this all-encompassing device/software/Fortress of Solitude, as it should preclude every having to buy or do anything ever again.

Oh wait, it gets better: the "COOLTvNetwork.com depiction of the Howard the Duck/Teletubby thing is credited to COOLCARTOONS.COM, which features the horrifying, diaper wearing (?) daughter (?) of same, demonstrating that plunging into the network enable toilet causes you to disintegrate. She seems strangely pleased, if not sexually aroused, by this outcome.

All of Mr. Wakefields endeavors are heavily larded with "TMs" and patent numbers, in the manner of children who put little copyright symbols on their doddles, including references to the "ClickVideoShop" which, sadly, appears to exist only as a domain name registration.

Apple R&D clearly stole Wakefield's intellectual property. At the time of the intellectual property theft, Wakefield wasn't aware that Apple staff were ransacking his home because they were wearing their invisibility suits.

Another reason to stay off crystal meth, kids.

Poor bugger, his mind is clearly in need of some medical attention. But that doesn't give him the right to waste other people's time with this lawsuit.
