The Great Pissing Contest

The Great Pissing Contest

Patents has always been big trouble factor in new technology.

Within last few years there is increased amount of law suits by big patent giants like Motorola, Microsoft, Apple, and others.

The only people who are rejoicing is the law firms in Seattle, Silicon Valley, New York and few other places.

These law suits are not easy to follow and many juries and judges probably don’t know what they are dealing with.

I find most of these patent infringement law suits to be just ridiculous.

 

Last year, this patent trolling, as some journalists put it, started with Samsung Vs. Apple over in EU.

The law suit is over who has the rights to lock screen. Ya Apple apparently hold the patent for “Unlocking a phone by dragging an image:, and Samsung made witty counter attacks with a scene from 2001 : A Space Odyssey.

Both companies are still in courts, in Germany, although the initial ban of sales of Galaxy line of products has been lifted somewhat, its long way from settlements in any shape or form.

 

Speaking of last year law suits. Google and Oracle is about half way or little less done with their case.
Oracle has claimed that Google has used some of its Java APIs to create Android platform. Now to some this doesn’t seems important since the OS is written in Linux kernel, and Java Oracle has some jurisdiction over this OS, if and only if Android has used a part of API that is not for public use. Today jury has decided that Google has infringed copy right protects Java API, but hasn’t decided on the damage Google caused by Android OS.

All this trouble for 9 lines….. But I understand that Google is creating lot of revenues from Ads, Apps, Music, Books, and Movies that its selling through the Google Play store (formerly known as Android Market). Oracle would get a lot of settlement money from this law suit.

These two are only major ones, I estimate about 5 to 10 more law suits that probably was behind door and settled quietly.

This is no different, Motorola and Microsoft began the year with law suits.

Motorola has claimed that its patent that allows Wi-Fi streaming has been infringed by Microsoft’s Windows 7 Media Center and XBOX 360. Now you might be asking yourself how did Motorola have these patents in first place? Motorola is not just failed Mobile device company, it also controls a lot of cable box that we use today.

Just like most law suit Motorola and Microsoft is going to be like a cry baby in front of the court until they get tired and settle for few million pay out.

 

These patent trolling isn’t helping new technology to emerge, because patents laws weren’t fitted out for this century.

1. The number of patents over lap each other
2. The use of patents are clear enough but if any similarity is found law suit can be initiated
3. Many patents are ridiculous as “Unlocking a phone by dragging an image”
Here is few links to few ridiculous patents

We need new laws to govern the emerging technology. patent can do that, but we need new laws to govern the use of patent and copy rights.

Last Time I heard anything about reformation of Patent law was last summer, UK has worked on new patent laws to stop the trolling.

Here is overview of all things patent

 

P.S. – If these law suits are ridiculous enough for you. Hasbro (The owners of Transformer franchise, as far as I know or care) has sued Asus for naming its tablets Transformer, Transformer Prime, and Transformer Pad. I have no idea what is going on with these two companies, so leave a comment if you know anything about it. I’m too lazy to look it up.

Some shitty poem

Ya I am depressed to death again
I seriously don’t know why I haven’t killed myself

 

For the broken hearts
Needs new heart

For the broken promise
Needs new hope

For the broken minds
Needs new brain

For the feared people
Needs new brave hearts

What The Fuck

Our life is the story of
Wizards of Oz

So where is the Emerald City
So where is the Wicked Witch of the West

Where is the Hope given to Dorothy
Where is the Bravery given to the Lion
Where is the Brain given to the Scarecrow
Where is the Heart given to the Tin-man

Well, We don’t get one in real world
Well, We don’t have one in real world

So then Why do we keep walking

Fight!

You see, your fight for survival starts right now. You don’t want to be judged? You won’t be. You don’t think you’re strong enough? You are. You’re afraid? Don’t be. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight. – Dr. Vera Gorski(From Sucker Punch)

I love my family….Not really most of my family members including cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents are Christians, so if I wish to speak out my mind about anything one of the two things happen. Either I am ignored, or I am told I don’t know anything. Basically I am ignored 100% by my family member when it comes to these serious talks.

I get it what I say is devil’s words and they don’t want to listen to say of the stuff I say, but if you are truly a person of this Earth. Anyone who is smart enough will buy my argument that a healthy argument can lead to better knowledge, and understanding of the subject, even if you think you know everything. So why is it that people doesn’t want to talk about religion? Why is it so hard for people to sit down and have a clam conversation about God and his meanings written in Bible so hard. I have had it up to my head with people who will just plainly ignore any statements, and conjunctures about religion. I hate that I must shut up about what I believe it’s not only violation against my free-speech rights(If that even matters in Asian cultures), but also its harmful to them as well.

My sister does this all the time. She plugs her ears when I am about to rant about how much i hate religion. I do have to give her some slacks cause she is bit young, although by her age I was thinking about converting my belief to Antagonism then. But when I am talking to people like my aunt and uncle I don’t want to be told that I am simply too young to understand. I am turning 18 in 6 months for god shake. I think I know enough to talk a thing or two about God. I mean I have this blog right? I don’t always make sense, but I to raise valid point here and there. So why is society ignoring religion, giving it an impunity from being criticized.

But its all comes down to this. You are the children of God. So why be afraid of a human being, by ignoring me you have acknowledged that you, yourself doesn’t fully believe in god.

No matter which side you are on, the battle has started.

Oh Tech Companies

This time U am going to rant about something else then just religionSo if you are not a Geek like me U probably don’t k now or don’t care
In Spain there is big convention going on called the Mobile World Congress or MWC for short

This is that one show where most of the gadgets that come out through out the year is shown……

That sounds great right? until it’s not

This year Every company seems to be following the Samsung/Apple model of launching bunch of phones with one family name

HTCImage representing HTC as depicted in CrunchBase
HTC one X and S

English: LG Logo

LG
L-Style (I think these might end up being Optimus) 7,5,and 3
Optimus Vu
Optimus 4X HD
Optimus 3D Max

SonyEnglish: Sony Xperia logo illustration. Xperia...
Xperia U and P

now for Samsung
Samsung has been running with Galaxy for a while now so this is going toEnglish: Samsung Galaxy S i9000 be long
Galaxy Mini 2
Galaxy Ace Plus
Galaxy S Advanced
Galaxy Beam
Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and 7 (where is the 8.9??)
Galaxy Note 10.1English: Android Robot. Français : le logo d'a...

Although I know that some of these names won’t even make it into the US market EU kids got some work to do if they wish to be the Geeks.Oh and guess what these are all Android Phones with somewhat similar specifications. That`s funny on geeks end who likes to make fun of Android for being fragmented. Fragmented just basically means that there is so many variant of one kind and they aren’t compatible with each other, which is why Netflix and other big companies had hard time making an App for all Android phones.

As for the companies listed on here this isn’t half of the phone they will announce in the next few days they will this goes on for a while like a week if I remember correctly.

Anyways If you hate good number of these names comment on here and speak up so that these companies can put out real named phones

Oh ya BTW did u guys here about next XBOX code name?? its Durango……
ya mobile device makers aren’t the only guys with ridiculous names

National coming out Day?!?!?!

I just found out the most interesting thing in the world
My birthday Oct 11th is National coming out day LOL

Although coming out is more gear toward Homosexuality but to be an atheist there is a bit of coming out elements to it

So here I go How I became an atheist and came out few years ago

I was Christian when I was young but didn’t go to church or anything but I believed that God existed and Bible was right no matter what
But by 5th grade I learned a interesting topic “Evolution” the theory (which should be a fact now) really hit me in the head and made myself ask it is possible to perform miracles that God made? If God was real why do other people have doubts and even deny that God is real
For few year I was an agnostic I was put into a Christian school and got to learn more about the Bible not my favorite thing but I was interested to find out about the religion
But 8th grade I really sat down and thought about what I had learned over the years I realized I was a atheist

Coming out for me wasn’t hard my parents didn’t care and they also shorts knew I was atheist
But now it has gotten hard for me. My parents from time to time forget that I am an atheist. And they also have became a big Christian not that I hate it I just find it bit weird my parents forced me to go to church

May be one of these days I need to come out again may be my next year on Oct. 11th

WTF even a baby is smarter then these peopl

>I recently came across a video about gay teen and the church trying to “help” by “driving out” the homosexual “demon”(that was lot of quotes)
And watching this video gave me a question
No a statement
If science can’t do it religion can’t
Why??
Because science has the reason that they can legitly back up thier result is
Where as church would drive this phycological crazymess into my head so that they can force me to become what they want me to be
This kid doesn’t know WTF is going on and he thinks it’s working
You see if someone did that to me I would hold out the middle figure and leave why? Cause it’s not going to work and mo way your changing who I am

The link will be posted later on in the comment

Update Here is the VIdeo
