Comment on It all boils down to trust … by easson

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 00:22:09 +0000

I worked for almost 20 years for Nortel Networks. Beginning about 2000, Huawei began producing exact clones of our products, priced precisely - and I mean precisely - 1/3 less than ours. So, we began to lose business, even though we were the dominant producer of telecommunications equipment in the world. In the next several years, this had such an impact on our company that it went bankrupt. There have been many allegations that Huawei hacked our systems, stole our designs, and then re-implemented them without having to spend the Billions of dollars in R&D that we did. There is no definitive proof of this. But, I appeal to your common sense. And now, this same company is claiming that it doesn't do anything bad, like acting as an agent of the PRC, or putting backdoors into its products. Make your own mind up, based on part facts.

Comment on Windows 8 not suitable for business? by Tibor

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 07:21:08 +0000

Even with a huge vertical touch screen, how would you use photoshop, illustrator and your browser at the same time flawlessly in metro. No way you can do that. You would work on a project for ages in shiny tile country. And would you type a 10 page essay on a vertical touch screen? Didn't think so. When I turn on my desktop It's work time, and Metro just slows me down. This interface is for children and people who don't actually work much on their desktop. Calling windows 8 professional or corporate is a lie at best. With metro microsoft offers me a toy when i need a shovel to get the job done. Fail of the decade.

@Question, @Bigpicture All systems, including trial by jury or trial by bench has its advantages and disadvantages. Throughout the years, courageous juries had formed our legal system for the better. If not for them resisting finding felon guilty because the the punishment is gravely disproportionate we will still be hanging people for petty crimes. One jury even want to jail in England because they stuck to their guns and return a verdict that the trial judge did not like just to establish their independence (from BBC's The Strange Case of The Law The bigotry or bias of one juror normally cannot sway the whole jury so there are check and bound within the jury itself. Unless of course, the juror holds sway in the jury. That is rare. We will have complex case that is difficult for the jury to digest, even at times panel of judges has problem digesting the fact, so it does not really matter whether is it a jury trial or bench trial in complex cases. Take for example, in early 2000s judges had to be educated on the technicality of how to run an internet. Someone has to explain to them terms we take for granted today. I really don't know whether bench trial or jury trial is good in complex cases. The only thing I know is I want someone impartial and not involved in the sector the lawsuit is about. This way, we get independent review of the issue under trial for the particular industrial/business sector. One find that, in the long run, we get the best results out of the trials.

Agreed. But in its defense I must say it is entertaining.

The legal system would work a lot better if they did not allow jury trials for this kind of case like they do in a lot of other countries. I believe the phrase is "a jury of their peers", but that can only really apply to individuals. With corporations who is their peers, other corporations? The judge is supposed to apply the law, the jury is supposed to deliberate the facts. But when the facts are highly technical, and the jury also makes decisions that are confused with matters of law, how can an outcome be anything but garbage? It should be a panel of judges that make these rulings, and judges that are expert in the subject matter.

I'm not a lawyer. If the way this verdict was reached and the argumentation jury used is OK, can we trust the legal system at all? Is jury really allowed to redefine what prior art is and is the system really OK with it? Because if yes, I do not want to be judged by a jury. They may use some alternative version of law I never heard about to find me guilty.

As I commented on Groklaw, this reads more like a bad legal drama than real life. Wayne

Comment on SCO legacy on Linux and why I think the Chapter 11 Trustee wants to keep SCO vs IBM alive by jesse

Fri, 10 Aug 2012 12:47:11 +0000

I don't see MAD as being the actual result of a patent war... Linux doesn't need patents... and none of the MS patents cover Linux. Any that used to apply would have been owned (or are still owned) by IBM, and thus are prior art to any MS patents. Any remaining MS patents are junk and should not have been issued.
