Mod parent -1 Complete And Utter Bullshit.
Just as pink is a trademark, registered to Owens-Corning Fiberglass, yellow is registered to Eastman Kodak.
Mess with Kodak at your own risk.
Now we know what all those cats are doing on all those laptops.
This is the second legal story this week -- actually it's the second Google Glass legal story this week -- in which Slashdot has got many of the key facts embarrassingly wrong.
Does Slashdot want to be taken seriously, or respected, as a media outlet? Then do fact checking.
In the context of a legal story this means having the story reviewed by someone with formal legal training.
Sure. Do you believe in property, propriety, plurality, surety, security, and not hurt the state? Say "What"
Why is WNET/Thirteen a plaintiff?
Aren't they supposed to be a "public" television station? Funded by "viewers like you"?
I'll buy a self-driving car when it comes with a full bar, and an in-dash ice machine.
1. Patent all the possible angles of key tilt and pitch on QWERTY keyboards.
2. Demand $3000 from each owner of a QWERTY keyboard, just less than the cost of a bare-bones legal defense.
They shamelessly copied the look of the BlackBerry keyboard. So what. The design of a QWERTY keyboard isn't an original work of authorship, nor is it nonobvious, nor are QWERTY keyboards associated with BB in the minds of members of the public.. No copyright, no patent, no trademark.
BB should buy the thing if it has any money left.
I'm waiting for Google to buy the railroads and integrate them with personal rapid transit.
To get users to upgrade their systems to Windows 8, MS should run lots and lots of TV commercials featuring the beautiful, awesome Windows 8 splash screen.
As soon as people realize how breathtakingly beautiful the splash screen is, they'll run out to Best Buy or wherever and buy a Surface.
If that doesn't work, buy more TV commercials with tighter close-ups on the beautiful, beautiful, utterly awesome Windows 8 splash screen.
There are already lots of US laws and regulations that mandate how IT is supposed to be procured and implemented by the US Government (see, e.g., the Clinger-Cohen Act.)
Each of these mandates came about because Congress became tired of funding IT projects where the money just vanished and no IT system was stood-up.
The botched implementation of the ACA website raises questions not of "wheelbarrows," but how and why EOP/DHHS managed to bypass or ignore existing mandates.
They practically roll up the sidewalks in SF at 9PM. If you want late night food, you have to go to some place in the Castro, a club that serves food (assuming they let you in), a bar (kitchen usually closes at 10), or go to the waffle house, Denny's, Mel's, or one of a couple (mostly take-out) pizza places.
If you are doing dinner and a movie, you pretty much have to do the dinner first, or nothing will be open after the movie lets out.
Bring your company and your employees to Las Vegas. Housing is cheap, traffic is light, there's no state income tax, and you'll never want for food, drink, or nightlife no matter what time it is.
Depends on how well T3 does the cataloging and website, and how much they charge for copies.
If it turns out the works are more easily accessible and searchable than at present, and the charges are reasonable (think ), then it's a good thing.
If the catalog website is poorly designed (see the existing DoD website), or if T3 decides to charge, well, DoD prices for things, then not so good.
