I've now gone through patent '647 and looked closely at the "infringing" points.
Basically, they decsribe ANY mobile computing device.
"The method recited in claim 15, wherein the memory contains strings, and wherein the step of detecting a structure further comprises the steps of retrieving a string from the memory and scanning the data to identify the string."
String handling. coz emails should just be MS paint drawn pictures...unless you have an Apple product, then you can use text.

bullshit. HTC and Google will take this one if there is ANY sense in the judges head.

One has to really consider if the current patent structure is still beneficial for innovation or, well, just retarded. I am guessing the people who accept these patents do not have the knowledge or expertise to understand what is being patented. There should be a more robust screening process to detect retarded patents and leave them out; a process where true, innovative patents are accepted to protect their owner's efforts.

There was a short lived movement to eliminate software patents because large companies would just cross license patents and shut out new innovations. That is why these software patents are so general and vague. Good luck getting our government to fix this....

I don't vote anymore...I feel that it is a waste of time. Our elections are only a simulation designed to fool you into thinking that America is a democracy. You get to choose, so that' makes it a democracy right? Wrong! The big corporations are running the USA now.

For the first point, look at RAMBUS. If they had been just a little more vague, they could have killed the PCI Express bus. Their basic patent involved a serial channel to memory. If they had written it to include serial channels between computer devices, they would own the PCI-e bus.

Second point: the USA is not a democracy. It never was. We are a democratic republic. Big difference.

Some little turd thumbed you down for the truth, I put you at 0 again. Watch out, there are a bunch of little trolls who probably still live in the mom's basement at this site.
