Patent Madness

Want to see what patent madness looks like?

What I get out of this*:

  • The patent system is totally, completely busted.
  • If you hear somebody is suing your handheld operating system or vendor of choice, it's safe to ignore it.
  • Big tech companies view the mobile arena as the future of computing, and they aren't pulling any punches.

*Patent pending: system or method of describing what you think about an infographic.
