Did you even read the articles that you've linked to?
exactly! The first one links to a Reddit thread where everything seems to be listed.
You cannot produce professional music on any iPad. All of the external hardware are toys and the music apps are nothing but gimmick.
That's not true. At least for the older iPad with the dock connector, you can connect any MIDI device through the Camera Connection Kit and then play very nice synthesizers like the Moog Animoog or Korg iMS-20. And if the internal headphone out isn't enough, you can connect USB class compliant audio interfaces to get super pristine audio output, too.
There's way more options, MIDI over Bluetooth LE, on the new iOS 9 there'll be options to route sound directly to a Mac and much more.
In fact, for a long time, iOS was the only mobile OS that allowed any meaningful interactive audio because Android had problems with the input delay.
But I'm happy to hear that the workflow you're describing (i.e. running full blown desktop apps) is possible on the Surface 3! It's like a thin laptop with touchscreen and for this interface situation the touch is very useful!
It seems to me only logical that the entity that commissioned the work, invested the resources and made it happen ie the company should own the patent.
What you're proposing sounds like zero incentive to invent while being employed. Doesn't make much sense psychologically.
$8 Million is quite low if you know what this guy's invention stimulated across various fields
I think just is if one agrees with the employer about a certain split ratio when signing for the job. It seems that here in Germany while employed at a university the inventor is entitled to 30% of the revenue achieved by commercialization.
But no offense, I know some people tend to sweat more and probably it's much warmer where you live.
What I also always find important is to take the nice tracks and if possible try to omit the crowded roads. One really shouldn't underestimate how much nicer and healthier (!!!) it is to go a little extra in order to be able to ride through a park or along a river, instead of breathing the exhaust fumes on the road. I hope in the future air of a certain quality will be seen as a right of the cyclists.
