Comment Crap patents. (Score 2) 124

There's nothing there! Just load balancing and some early attempt at DNSSEC. If they have a case against anyone (not that the patents are really valid), it's Microsoft for Active Directory - secure internal DNS with a portal to the internet. Except of course that those two patents specify the use of non-standard TLD's.

And somehow I doubt that facetime uses server names like facetime.apple.scom. Case should have been tossed on those grounds alone.

OH! Good catch... Maybe he should have used Acrobat 11 instead of DC? Install windows in a VM or dual boot? Or he could have tried the easier route of asking a friend with Windows or a Mac to borrow it for an hour, using one at the office, or library... Convenient? Not really. But dealing with incompatible binaries never is.
