So now a location-based reminder is a fucking patentable thing? What's next, a patent on something that remembers phone numbers for you?
I think next, they will figure out that simply reminding you to buy milk when you are near a store isn't very smart. You buy the milk, then it sits in your car while you go to work. When you get back out of work, you see the milk is spoiled. Next, the patent will be for "location based reminders that remind you to buy milk when you are on your way home and you are near a store that is within 30 minutes of your house ". I work 38 miles from home - which in the morning is a 40 minute drive and on the way home is an hour and 25 minutes. I don't want milk while I am near work - that would be stupid. I want it when I am almost to my house and on the way home.
"what color is RMS's beard?"
That's a trick question as it depends on what he has been eating recently. Bazinga!
