Comment: Anything more controlled could be better (Score 1) 263 263

Actually, a linux based "documentation reader" could have been more stable if designed with this single purpose in mind. At the least it could have been a closely controlled software environment (known, tested and not auto upgrading).

But not just because it's LINUX.

Comment: G+ failed bcause everybody was on FB already (Score 1) 359 359

I use FB because everybody already is on it.
I use Skype because everybody is on it.

Not because I particularly like FB or Skpe (I fact I do not , FB ui driver me nuts due to inconsistencies and Skype went sour recently both in connection quality and their UI design).

Comment: curb expenses or limit representation? (Score 1) 104 104

So how about a system in which the only representation of both sides is from a pool of appointed lawyers...like a "universal legal service" (kin to "universal medical services" of some countries)?

Or at least both sides are limited in their expenses?

Similarly to what small clams court does to even the playing field?

This is not iPhone specific. FTFPatent:

"In accordance with the invention, a head-mounted display system and method of operation are provided in which the system can allow users to couple and decouple a portable electronic device with a head-mounted device. The portable electronic device may for example be physically and/or operatively coupled and decoupled with the head-mounted device. In some embodiments, the two devices may be considered temporarily integrated. "

It appears to patent any holder ("a head-mounted device") of any portable device worn on one's head that's providing a "display".

After an instrument has been assembled, extra components will be found on the bench.
