Robert Farker: I have been wanting a tablet computer for a while. I was actually going to head to Micro Center after work today to pick one up. Anyone have any recommendations? I want an android tablet and I like ASUS but am flexible I'm the brand.

Endive Wombat: FTFA: A statement from Samsung said: "Should Apple continue to make excessive legal claims based on such generic designs, innovation in the industry could be harmed and consumer choice unduly limited."How about technology patents in general. I believe that there should be a use it or lose it provision and an "obvious conclusion" clause. Like if 2 different inventors around the same time discover that 1+1=2, no one get's that patent. Oh, also...processes. Unless the process is HIGHLY proprietary and highly specific to a specific device, component, etc, then sure. But describing how to open a jar of peanut butter or turn on a light switch should not be something that is granted a patent.I really hope that there is a massive overhaul in the US patent laws soon. This infighting among tech companies is costing a lot of money, stagnating innovation and possibly leading to inferior products.I would like to see how much things would cost less if there was not a litany of patent suits flying around everywhere.
BurnShrike: Bahaha! It's nice to see them suffering some backlash for their assholery.
D_Evans45: Not like Drew Curtis is past any of these shenanigans. Drew Curtis thinks he invented NSFW.
