Comment Re:Good! CS is a pseudo-subject anyway (Score 0) 322

(I also love hardware, hence the plan to take a major between CS and EE). And the Marine Bio Case Study wasn't all that bad; we had some fun projects such as adding sharks in our class.

You would have loved my first job out of school. I got a degree in Computer Science and Engineering where I was able to study both hardware and software. When I graduated I worked for a company that built hardware and software for a lot of marine biologist research labs. I got to learn a lot about their work. Keep up your studies because the careers that will become available to you when you graduate are very very cool.

Submission + - Weak Patent Infringement Threat Delays IPO (

rukidding writes: "Universal Recovery Systems Inc is claiming SoundBite Communications is infringing on their patents. This comes on the eve of the SoundBite IPO. From a Forbes article:

SoundBite said it believes the company's allegations are without merit, but warned that its defense against the claims could result in 'significant expense and diversion of management resources.'

If Universal Recovery is so worried about their patent then why are they so quick to sell the 'patents and patent application'? Also, the timing of this, on the eve of the IPO, seems odd as well. Is this more abuse of the US patent system?"
