Remember the good old days, when we actually had time for a nice cup of tea with the family in the porch while the kids played out in the yard?
A few hours ago Microsoft spent $1 billion on AOL's patents
A few days ago facebook bought 750 patents from IBM as the social networking company attempts to strengthen its intellectual property portfolio in the wake of a lawsuit filed by Yahoo.
A few months ago Google bought Motorola Mobillity, gaining control of more than 17,000 mobile-related patents worldwide, with an additional 7,000 Motorola patent applications in the pipeline.)
A few days before that Apple bought 6000 patents from Nortel Networks Corp
What are patents, but ideas and what are ideas but the essence of future.
