this is the court case where the judge is in MS's pocket. Groklaw has this well documented.
It's not even about the patents anymore, as much as a highly questionable judge doing something which there is no precedent for ever having been done in any court in the united states.
To think this is about Google's ownership of patents, I would find that somewhat questionable in this case, which I should point out they were sued by *Microsoft*, and that this case was about RAND/SEP more than anything.
Heh, I believe that would be news if it were 2001. It's as much of a sign of Mike being correct in his analysis that trolls are getting noisier and noisier as of lately, while resorting to mostly ad-hominem comments.
exactly. I don't even watch TV anymore but I could easily see myself paying a subscription cost for access to HBO without cable. It's the cable I don't care about, not as much the HBO. Not to mention that it's easily more money for HBO as bandwidth is incredibly cheap, and that they could have *gasp* global reach.
Until they decide to actually offer this standalone, I'll just continue to get episodes via alternate means.
