Re: the three partners...I think Walt was with the girl, and then the other guy and the girl hooked up and that's why Walt bailed.
Actually I think their claimed 'prototypical inventor' was just involved in patent litigation, not specifically involved in litigation with intellectual ventures.
There is nothing natural about interacting with flying robots...

If you do anything to correct the situation, you are reinforcing the bad behavior, and it will continue to happen with greater frequency.
You actually get punished more for trying to do the right thing.
You should just delete them, mark as spam, etc.
From a behavior stand point you would want to avoid reinforcing the behavior, and possibly also identify a way to punish the behavior -- one could do the wrong thing and publish them online, which might be a punishment (while probably technically legal, this behavior could increase the frequency with which you interact with lawyers).
In my case, someone has the same name modulo middle name, and his gmail is one character more than mine, so I get a few of their emails a month, at first I tried to respond to the sender, or forward them along, but it just kept happening so I now I delete them or mark them as spam.
In late spring of 2010 Motorola released an Android 1.5 IDEN push-to-talk phone, and the masses obviously wanted and expected an Android update as apps for the 1.5 were already dwindiing. Then in Feb 2011 it was announced that the i1 would remain version 1.5 forever. This PR nightmare is evident on the official Motorola support forums with a thread that topped out at 682 posts before being locked by the admins. The thread had morphed into a place to vent frustrations with Motorola/Boost and to discuss options for custom firmware for the abandoned phone."

A patent dies everytime you mentaly masterbate on slashdot. Oh the horror.
I think most if not all hospitals have this tech.
The station(s) go offline, and service personel come and fix it... parts of the network going offline is not an unusual event. Unlike the 19th century tech, these packet (plastic canister) routed pneumatic tube systems lack humans at the core of packet routing.
From a volunteer's point of view at a non-Stanford hospital, the IT integration was less than stellar. Maybe Stanford has done some work in that area, or maybe this is just astroturfing by a pneumatic tube company.
- Derivatives = Bets
- Credit Default Swaps = Insurance on bets
- Hedge Funds = Borrowing of money to gamble with (unregulated and secret also used to manipulate markets)
- Taxpayer Bailout = Taxpayers covering the gambling losses for gamblers?
- Reality = Insurance (e.g. AIG) cannot cover failed bets which amount to: USD 206k per person-on-planet. The number it is based on has grown from USD 1.144 Quadrillion last year to USD 1.405 Quadrillion, ie, +22% worldwide. The GDP of the entire world is only USD 50 trillion.
A few accounting entries is all it takes to fix this problem, literally
erasing the bogus value much to the dismay of a few but not the many. An entirely new system is required to eliminate
the core flaws and a global currency will not work properly for the common
economic system participant because of the disparity between the economies of
various countries. What has been suggested is localized regional value exchange
systems that would interface with other regional systems in a totally
transparent and "natural" market manner.
I will leave you with this thought, if you went to a bank and asked to borrow money to go to the casino what do you think they would tell you? The banks did not need to ask anyone. They should have asked the US citizens because they are the ones backing the banks with a portion of their future labor potential. Sure the odds would usually be better than a casino, but in review of some of the financial instruments the actual odds were worse than the casino."

A Hong Kong computer programmer who had legally resided in the US for 15 years (since he was 17) and fathered two American children went for his final green card interview and was locked up, detained until he died of cancer that the DHS refused to treat him for. He had overstayed a visa (the DHS sent a key notice to the wrong address), and this prompted the DHS to lock him away and demand that he waive all right to immigration appeal and be immediately deported. In detention, his complaints of excruciating back pain were treated as fakery, and he was dragged around in shackles after he lost the ability to walk..."
