Legal Nokia has gotten an injunction against HTC in Germany over a patent on a power-saving feature in Qualcomm chips (?!). Nokia's response illustrates why the company started its recent patent offensive: "Nokia is pleased with this decision, which confirms the quality of Nokia's patent portfolio." If nobody buys your phones and your business is failing spectacularly, you have to promote something else of value to paint yourself as an interesting acquisition target. Patents it is, then. If you can't compete, litigate. Update: HTC's statement is pretty damning.

We're all adults here. A few harsh and direct words never killed anyone. If it did, I'd be chopped to pieces, burnt, and buried six times over.


Pfft, don't be like that, we would never do that.




...I believe we're inventive enough a bunch to come up with some much fancier ways of disposing of you.
