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.

Well, we do use it when it comes to computer screens. But when someone says he has a 22" screen and you have a 21" you know his is bigger, but you have no idea how much or how big your screen is in centimeters.

And inches for screens are also informal, at manufacturing everything is done in metric anyway.

Like naming of floppies ...the "3.5" and "5.25" inches bays aren't precisely of that dimension, they are actually in the closest metric size.
