Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Can we abstract all Slashdot posts?

highphilosopher writes: It strikes me that almost all slashdot posts could be abstracted down to their basic types. I see a lot of "I've been doing this for so long that" posts, and plenty of "Company XYZ's product is so superior/inferior" posts. Perhaps if we had a way to setup basic abstract posts that could magically fill in tags from the story, it would save us all a lot of time.

Submission + - Who can fix the patent system? We Can! With some help from StackExchange (stackoverflow.com)

highphilosopher writes: So the latest patent reform laws had a little clause in there that the public can submit prior work to the patent office to disprove bad patents. This plus a willing USPTO Director, and the good people at StackExchange makes a winning combination. A StackExchange site dedicated to collecting prior art for bad patents! This is the first thing I've seen that actually does something good for patents.

How does the populous of slashdot feel about the President still carrying a blackberry.
Sidenote, have any of you ever had trouble dialing a number on any smartphone?
