Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: I hold a patent on overzealous usage of the hero tag, so I'm getting a kickback out of these replies.
gweilo8888: Alcatel's products are also utter shiat.I worked for a major international for quite a few years, and we had an Alcatel PABX phone system. It regularly crashed and had to be rebooted -- killing everybody's calls in the process, and taking their phones offline. It also had a rather nasty bug in that when a single extension passed a threshold for a certain number of voicemails, all the voicemails to every single phone in both our buildings would vanish.According to our facilities manager, Alcatel had sent engineers from their corporate HQ in France to look at the thing numerous times, replacing every single hardware component, making custom builds of firmware just for us, and so on -- yet to my knowledge they never figured out either problem in the numerous years I was with the company.

you are a puppet: Shareholders of public companies that engage in patent trolling should ask themselves if they're really well-served by their management teams," Cheng added. "Are they properly monetizing their R&D? Surely there are better ways to make money than to just rely on litigating patents. If I was a shareholder, I would take a hard look as to whether their management was competent."Ha. Utter smackdown
