Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

Let me get this right, when Google exploits a bug in Safary to take advantage is Apple's fault to not patch it, but when Apple exploits a bug in the patent system to take advantage is also Apple's fault?

Uh, who are you addressing this to? Because I wrote this about that case:

In case the point hasn't been driven home yet - companies need to be monitored at all times. This was clearly intentional, and circumvents restrictions Apple has put in place to protect the privacy of its users. It doesn't matter whether it's Google and Facebook circumventing privacy restrictions, or Microsoft and Apple taking away ownership of our computers - this stuff needs to be questioned, challenged, and monitored at all times.

If we don't, we could end up in a world of hurt.


Next time, try not to be so passive-aggressive, and just flat-out address the people you're trying to address.

Next time don't assume is directed to you, it wasn't.
