“Samsung was challenging Apple’s iPad patents, demanding that Apple prove its patents were valid. About damn time. Whatever lawyer it was in the patent office who granted the first software patent needs to be run out of town on a rail. And the lawyer who granted the first ‘design appearance’ patent needs to be tarred and feathered and then run out of town on a rail.”

“Occupy Wall Street protesters claim Wall Street moved Main Street jobs to Asia. That bankers make huge bonuses, trade instead of lend money, get tax breaks, helped cause the housing meltdown, and curry too much influence with elected officials and regulators. It’s clear that Silicon Valley is equally, and maybe even more responsible for lost American jobs, and all these other points too.”
Robert A. Green, CPA, founder and CEO of Green & Company Inc.
“NOTHING SAP does on the enhancement pack side of things will prevent the continued onslaught it is currently facing from today, Workday tomorrow and goodness knows who in a few years’ time. Nothing, nada, zippo.”

“An injunction that forced Google to change Android to be more compatible with Java might seem like a good ideal, but how practicable would such a refactoring really be. And could it be made retrospective or just for the future. What aspects of Android would we have to sacrifice. And anyway would Google really undertake such a huge task. At the moment it seems to have a habit of dropping the existing in favor of the new.”
