Ketchup that slides right out of the bottle, to the last drop?
Shut down the Patent Office. There is now nothing worthwhile left to invent.
My first smart phone was a Samsung running Android. It was clunky and Samsung abandoned it less than 1 year after it was released. I switched to iPhone after that and loved it. I've looked at the Galaxy S, the Nexus and the HTCs every year or so when it came time to upgrade. I am still on the iPhone and loving it.
My thanks to Steve and Apple!
So go ahead and pile on.
Oh, please. Trump has been playing to the media since day one. Every time the media has finished one cycle Trump comes out with some new outrage and the spotlight is upon him once more. That worked fine for the primaries where Trump's intentional outrageousness played to the Alt-Right and then the Republican base.
Trump got more media coverage the all of the other Republican candidates combined. He wanted it that way. Now that it is general election time that outrageousness doesn't play as well to the Dems or Indies.
As far as the lewd remarks on that one video tape, he could have honestly apologized and let it go. We'd have mostly forgotten it already. He had to try and tell us he never did that kind of thing, though to too many people know better, he made sexual misconduct the story by trying to tell us Billy was worse.
We call this being hoisted by one's own petard.
Yeah but you can make your own romantic comedy, locked room murder, etc. all day long as long you are not copying someone else's work verbatim, or closely paraphrasing. You can even make your own mouse based cartoons so long as you don't copy Mickey too closely.
With software patents gone crazy like they have where every little method or data structure being patented we've come to the point where you almost can't code anything without being sued these days.
I only hope that the software patent is finally done away with sooner rather than later.
