I love me some Newegg.

Newegg?  The same website that had plenty of PS4s available when it was in short supply, but you could only buy one packaged with a bunch of shiat you didn't want, or need?  That Newegg?

I have never had a problem with Newegg and if I didn't like their deal I walked away.  Good for them for standing up.  No company is perfect, but they seem to do things well.

Thanks to the efforts of Lee Cheng and his legal team, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a trial court to reconsider its earlier denial of Newegg's request for attorneys' fees and costs in the patent infringement lawsuit brought on by SUS.

Considering that the entire order from the Fed. Circuit is:
The Supreme Court decided Octane Fitness, LLC v. ICON Health & Fitness, Inc., No. 12-1184, 110 U.S.P.Q.2d 1337 (U.S. 2014) on April 29, 2014. 
IT IS ORDERED THAT: 
The district court's order denying declaration of an exceptional case and award of attorneys' fees is vacated and the case is remanded for further proceedings in light of the Supreme Court's decision.


... I wouldn't really describe that as "thanks to the efforts of Lee Cheng and his legal team." SCOTUS passed down a new rule and this order remands to the district court to reconsider in light of the new rule.

Jesus.  That shirt they're selling.  I didn't realize how similar a fantasy troll looked to nazi depictions of Jews until they gave them a top hat, brief case, and suit.  Comes off as incredibly racist, even though they didn't mean to.

You really, really like top hats. Your mind inserted one where it felt there should have been one.

Or the fact that cocaine is a hell of a drug.

Or both. I don't know you. But if you really do like top hats that much, maybe I should. But you seem to think that Newegg is the accidentally racist ones for having their fantasy troll (of which there is plenty fantasy sources to base said image on) similar to the overtly racist Nazi representation of Jews, instead of realizing that it's the Nazis who were the racist ones (duh) for making their images of Jews look like fantasy trolls.

Many years ago I bought a CPU from them and it showed up with a chipped core. I found their number, prepared for a fight........ and they didn't even need to know why I was returning it (though I made sure to tell them). Absolutely no hassle whatsoever, not even the minimum amount of hassle I would expect and have been fine with legitimately.

I've loved them ever since, and buy stuff from them regularly. If it wasn't for Microcenter building a bricks & mortar location nearly walking distance from my house (and Microcenter has some seriously great prices and sales) I'd still be buying absolutely everything through Newegg.

NewEgg's legal team is going after the award for the attorney's fees. The other companies just ate the cost, as proving malicious intent is very difficult. They are doing it just to cost the troll more money. Even if they don't get the fees, the troll still has to pay their own lawyers for more than they had planned.

True, but otoh, the longer they push the issue, the easier it is for the troll to raise an abuse of process claim against NewEgg's legal team and get legal fees back.

Yup, same one.  They eat patent trolls for lunch, and that's pretty awesome.

And if you're going to get bent out of shape over them selling consoles in bundles, you might as well just stop shopping online right now.  They've all done that for every console launch in the last two generations.

Oh, I should stipulate that I'm on NewEgg's side on this one, just that Cheng's bluster is even more over-the-top than usual.

The defendants in this case were:
Accor, Adobe, Amazon, Aweber, CBS, CDW, Choice Hotels, Daily  News, Electronic Arts, Enterprise, Facebook, Gannett, HSN, Intuit, Jason's Deli, Linkedin, Monster,Myspace, NBC, Newegg, Nissan, Office Max, Overstock, Salesforce.com, Sears, Staples, Starwood,Target, Thomson, Ticketmaster, Time, Turner, Wal-Mart, Walt Disney and Wyndham

And I'm pretty sure the only reason they sued Jason's Deli was because they are based in Beaumont, Texas. Classic troll behavior.

On the plus side, you can't file a suit like that anymore, thanks to the AIA.

Laptop.  Dead pixels.  Newegg was good about it, was wanting to setup a new laptop before holiday travels, they covered all the shipping charges, etc etc.

Still pissed about it, though.  At the manufacture, not Newegg.  How the fark can you let a laptop, especially a high end one, go out the door with dead and stuck pixels?  Doesn't the manufacture have any damn QC department?

There is a certain threshold before dead pixels are considered a warranty item. I learned this in school when I took one of our brand new cameras on a video project. I was the first user and it had a few dead pixels, but it wasn't replaceable unless they exceeded a certain number. Newegg was definitely the good guy on this one. They could have told you that it was between you and the manufacturer, and the manufacturer could have told you to eat a dick, and it would be buried in the warranty description.

Oh, I know.  Newegg was farking awesome on this.  No restocking fee, they overnighted the other laptop I bought, posted the refund for the first pretty quickly.

My only rage is against MSI.  A high end gaming laptop that ships out with three dead/stuck pixels in the middle of the screen?  No way in hell a customer should stand for that.

lolwut?  Every walmart, gamestop, and target around me have PS4s in stock.  In December, they'd occasionally be off the shelves, but two out of three times I went to the store, they'd have PS4s in stock.

Did you try buying it off the internet only or something?
