First Success for Ask Parents

Category: PatentsTeknovis @ 22:09

I previously wrote about Ask Patents in Ask Patents. It appears that it has just had its first victory, and it was against Microsoft! For more details see Victory Lap for Ask Patents.

I wonder if this is a once off victory, or the start of many victories!

Some Friday afternoon humour… I discovered Stu’s Views this week! If you have ever worked with any legal people then you might find this frighteningly true!

Mouse Inventor Dies

Category: Hardware,PeopleTeknovis @ 21:30

This evening I read that Doug Engelbart, the inventor of the mouse, died. See Computer mouse inventor Doug Engelbart dies at 88.

I had never heard of him before today, and it never dawned on me to think about how the mouse that we all use every day came into existence!

So thank you Mr. Engelbart for your invention, and may you rest in peace.

(On a side note, the associated 10 inventors who didn’t get mega-rich from their inventions article is also an interesting read.)
