PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless At TechCrunch, Jolla's CEO Marc Dillon explains why his company will focus on China, Finland, and the rest of Europe first, ignoring the US. "The US market is not on the radar as yet, as he says the patent landscape there 'raises a barrier' of entry to newcomers (he's especially critical of overly aggressive use of design patents)." Considering the patent mess in the US is only getting worse, expect to see more of this in the future. Jolla is making a wise decision by ignoring the US - as a young technology company, you're far better off focusing your attention elsewhere.

Did you read that?

"The following is a list of publicly traded companies having the greatest market capitalization"

A good translation would be "The following is a list of companies on the the stock exchange with a large amount of stock for sale"

There are a ton of companies that are not on the stock exchange, and for that matter not in the U.S.

This is similar to the list of the richest people in the world magazines like to put out. What people don't know is you practically have to volunteer for that.
