Legal This is certainly worth a meagre +1 in my book: patent troll Lodsys has actually taken the time to answer some of the concerns on the web regarding its legal threats to several small-time iOS developers. There's some interesting stuff in there.

It's no wonder that we are loosing in the technology "arms race", as our retarded politicians, most who are old enough to have owned a brand new Model T, are killing innovation by the little guy.

Small guy invents process. Small guy patents it. Small guy, who cannot afford the price to market it to many companies and would not be able to compete at all, sells to a company who can.

I think the reason that we are falling behinc is the fourth step, "Small guy receives threats on his life for trying to make a living on his work."
