Comment Re:Riiiiight. (Score 2) 233

I have a 2013 Ford Fusion with Sync and MyFord Touch. I've honestly not found much issue with it, but that doesn't mean I haven't found any issues. I actually like Sync over what GM and Nissan have for UI but the touchscreen is, admittedly, crap.

The only feature I have but can't use is the speak-to-text feature; I assume that's a Windows Phone only feature. I also don't like how the vehicle reports in maintenance checks. Instead of using my phone's internet capability it makes a phonecall instead.

Other then that, I have no problem with it.

Yes, but I'm thinking more of USPTO process in this case. The patent can still be granted unless someone files a petition citing prior art. After that it may be invalidated based on Bitcoin existing, but my point it that it's still possible that the bank can receive this patent.

The interesting thing is that many newspapers are owner by a larger newspaper. The Boston Globe is/was owned by the NYT, The LA Times is owned by the Chicago Tribune, etc. I think what's missing is a form of brand cohesion, as in naming all newspapers in a family one central name and having a dedicated website for all.
