Comment off, patent's trolls! (Score 1) 344 344

Microsoft, Oracle and other trolls just get to $$ck off. Double click and thousands more such patents are not IP. It's axiom which does not require proving. Any other person with less brain then you could "invented" it 5 sec and probably did. They just didn't have money and impudence to "patent" it.

Absolutely agree. The research has been done using bad initial conditions. They used both Windows and SSD which doesn't support TRIM command. Then they used tools which were not design neither to deal with SSD secure delete ATA command no TRIM command. They have got false results. I guess students don't study hard these days.

I'm with you. I've started with BASIC 20 years ago and it was cool to type 10 print "A" and see "A" on the screen. Today, the char "A" on the black screen is definitely *not* impressive. People do amazing things using Javascript, like a 1kbyte size AI chess master. Go and teach HTML5, Javascript; something what is more visual like jQuery. Whatever, but no BASIC.

I'm with you. SMS is a part of GSM protocol, apparently. It replaced beepers/pagers and part of our life. I need a separate compass and gps devices in case if mobile battery dies, but I don't need a phone without sms. It's not polite sometimes to call to a person just to say "ok".

Weekend, where are you?
