Theaetetus: StoPPeRmobile: Theaetetus: StoPPeRmobile: You mean like Trillian has been doing since 2000?[4.bp.blogspot.com image 300x320]I don't see how that applies at all. Are you referring to that notification popup?I'm still stuck on dynamically generated buttons. Think I started with those in 1999. May have been 2001, though. Those seem to fit the bill and I can't afford the type of lawyers needed.In what way do they fit the bill?both selectable and live -- containing refreshed content that provides a real-time or near-real-time view of the underlying informationWould depend on the button, I suppose... For example, one that only has the same sort of true or false behavior of the recycling bin mentioned above wouldn't qualify, since it's not providing a view of the underlying information. Additionally, while they'd be a start for a rejection of the patent, a single button wouldn't be enough, since some of the claim is around the grid and refresh of different tiles.

NutWrench: According to some folks over at SlashDot, Surfcast is a company that makes no products or sells any services. In other words, they're patent trolls, disguised as a "company." A quick visit to Surfcast's unimpressive website seems to confirm this. So I guess the question is: should a company that produces nothing of value be able to sue for "patent infringement?"
