I thought the US was supposed to be a christian country
You thought wrong. The US is supposed to be a country without a state religion. Of course that doesn't stop the GOP from shoving its religious views down other people's throats.
Amount of people in in the building about 3000
And that would be relevant if the response to 9/11 was to protect the world trade center site. But it's not. The response has been to blow trillions of dollars on invading two countries (losing more lives than were lost in 9/11 in the process), engaging in a basically perpetual and unwinnable "war on terror", throwing out civil rights in the name of "security", and starting and organization dedicated to groping people trying to get on an airplane.
If saving lives was really a driving concern those dollars could be spent far more wisely.
If they did that they would get around this law, but that does raise the bar significantly compared to just buying up junk patents and using them to sue people.
If you are the inventor you are not a "non-practicing entity" and the law doesn't apply to you.
Yes, the previous copy they bought is in use. They are busy wiping Israel off the map.
If there's one thing politicians of all flavors love it's jingoism. Maybe what we really need to do is reignite the sense of competitiveness by pointing out how the Europeans are leaving the US in the dust when it comes to making new discoveries like the Higgs Boson, and give them something to harp about to their voters when the US wins the race to make the next big discover.
That won't help with penetration
Iran exports about 2.4 million barrels of oil a day. At the current price of about $100/barrel, $400 million is about 1.67 days worth of oil exports for them. Good luck using that investment as a bargaining chip.
Motorola spun off Motorola Mobility earlier this year, an that's the company that Google bought. That's not the same company that's making Motorola branded set-top boxes or any of the other electronic products that aren't related mobile phones.
Firstly, you're wrong, there is plenty of video evidence of a knife being thrown. Secondly, you're just trying to bring irrelevant issues in here... this is not the case of some guy being shot while running away. The cop involved here is not the one in London or elsewhere, and he very clearly was being aggressive here.
Let's flip things around for a second. When someone attempts to use deadly force, why should they be entitled to be treated with kid gloves? Why should the people responding to a situation take on additional risk to themselves or bystanders instead of taking the most expedient action to end the situation. If you threaten someone else's life as far as I'm concerned your life is forfeit. If they happen to take you down alive with a non-lethal shot or something else you should count yourself lucky. If your "doing something stupid" involves throwing knives at people you absolutely should expect to get shot.
Do you honestly believe police (or anyone else for that matter) should not be allowed to respond in kind against a person who attempts a lethal attack? I really hope you never have a kid because you'd be polluting the gene pool.
Aren't you just defending fraud?
Where did you get that from? The guy said it referred to a term in a document *he didn't bother to read*. If you sign any contract as important as an options grant without bothering to even read the damn thing you deserve to get fucked. It's not like this was some obscure term buried in some EULA.
