Mike Chewbacca: Who the hell is NewEgg and how can I give them my money as a big thank you for doing this?
BKITU: Well, they're getting my business for the foreseeable future.
squibbits: BKITU: Well, they're getting my business for the foreseeable future.I came here to say the same thing.
Cybernetic: StoPPeRmobile: That magazine used to be 3 times fatter.The first computer I ever bought came out of an ad in Computer Shopper.16 MHz 386sx. It may have had a whole 1GB of memory. It had a SoundBlaster and (I think) a Tseng Labs video card. And it came with a 14-inch Sony Trinitron CRT monitor./Ah, memories.
twfeline: Newegg has the WORST customer service. Will never give them my personal or my company's business again.
gweilo8888: Alcatel's products are also utter shiat.
Dr Dreidel: Theaetetus: So the patent is so broad that you can't help but infringe, but it's also so broad that there's tons of prior art predating it and it's invalid.So you're surprised that they found non-infringement,
umad: Theaetetus: As an aside, it actually is a little surprising that the jury found non-infringement. A parameterized HTTP POST request could read on that first claim.I am SHOCKED that you agree with the trolls. Absolutely flabbergasted.
Theaetetus: The article doesn't mention what the '131 patent was invalid over, but fortunately, all of the trial documents are up on PACER. It looks like the piece of prior art used was the X Window System, as described in the Xlib Programming Manual for Version 11, Vol. 1.Interestingly (particularly with the CLS Bank case that was just decided), patent eligibility under 35 USC 101 didn't seem to be an issue at trial. Which is surprising, 'cause I can't believe those claims would pass muster under the CLS analysis.
TheShavingofOccam123: Princess Ryans Knickers: TheShavingofOccam123: Like a plastic jar of powdered pickling spices pouring all over my electronics items. So don't blame meYou do understand there is an option while ordering to have them in separate boxes.Yes. Yes, I do.BUT WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR A COMPANY THAT PRIDES ITSELF ON CUSTOMER SERVICE TO PROPERLY PACKAGE ITEMS TOGETHER? I WOULD LIKE ALL OF MY ITEMS IN ONCE BOX.Sorry I flared.The worst Amazon.com experience I had was the boxed assortment of bagged food items. Some warehouse employee had spent a few weeks removing a bag from the torn-open box, eating the all the contents, then wadding the empty bag up and shoving it back into the box. He had eaten about 6 or 7 bags and was still working on the 8th when the box was shipped to me. He thoughtfully included the half-eaten bag in the box./Then there was the worm in my bottle of wine club cabernet...
madgonad: Newegg isn't going to give you a reach-around.They are a good business (and a sometime corporate White Knight), but they are still a business. I have spent plenty of money there, but have recently found their pricing to be a little on the high side.
Rwa2play: Red_Fox: Lucent has sucked ever since the LT Win modem.Wow! That takes me back a bit but yeah, remember buying that thing at CompUSA and returned it the next day because it couldn't do squat. Got myself a Hayes modem instead and used it until I got broadband.
Red_Fox: Lucent has sucked ever since the LT Win modem.
madgonad: TheSelphie: Mike Chewbacca: Who the hell is NewEgg and how can I give them my money as a big thank you for doing this?A farking fantastic online electronics retailer. Just type in their name +.com and there you go.They were already awesome before fighting online trolls, this type of stuff just makes me continue to give them business.Newegg isn't going to give you a reach-around.They are a good business (and a sometime corporate White Knight), but they are still a business. I have spent plenty of money there, but have recently found their pricing to be a little on the high side. Microcenter and Frys will generally beat them on price.
EddyKilowatt: Bell Labs was a national treasure. It has always fascinated me that there was such a strong civic ethic at Bell that they would plow millions (probably billions in CY dollars) into blue-sky research... a lot of which benefited them, obviously, but even more of which has proven to benefit society at large.
