Having come from an Innovation Management class (yes, there is such a thing) where we discussed data from a study showing that patents are a minor percentage (typically 5-25%) of ensuring innovation delivers a competitive edge, this Techdirt article really hit home. And this information comes from IBM, who practically designed the U.S. Patent Office IT infrastructure and holds the largest number of patents in the US - they should know what they're talking about either as registrant or consultant.
I wonder if Eolas or Nomadix share this view. Or rather, I'm positive they don't, otherwise they wouldn't misuse the system the way they do.
Shared Address Books, At Last:
(with apologies to 0xDECAFBAD):
- Enable both GPRS and Address Book over Bluetooth on the T68i (should work on the T610 too)
- Blackberry surpasses 1M subscribers (the number was a surprise - I'm not telling which way)
- Xbox 2 and PowerPC rumors: 1, 2, 3
- Cisco profits drop as sales rise - acquisitions weigh in heavily, but it was still a very good year - in fact, they had the highest sales in three years.
- Spam on mobile phones - now this is serious. E-mail spam is beyond control right now, but there's still a chance of controlling SMS and MMS spam...
