Legal Say what you want about Twitter - pointless, annoying, noise, useless - at least the company has its heart in the right place. Twitter just announced the Innovator's Patent Agreement, a promise not use their or their employees' patents offensively. In a world where yesterday's innovators are today's patent trolls - Apple, Microsoft, Oracle - this is a big deal.

Since Windows 7 is such a vast success, I guess the Microsoft-bashers needed to come up with some other attempt to insult, enter "patent troll".

If some people aren't crying about Microsoft, they're not happy.
