Mike about 3D TV

Remy liked the show

E-mail
I called all my friends who might be interested, but they ALL wanted to be hosts to get the free Windows 7 Ultimate Edition.

Thinking about it, it is obvious that Microsoft wasn’t thinking. All of us who might get excited about this program would ALL want to be hosts! Those not interested in hosting would probably not be excited about Windows 7 let alone an installation party.

Love the show.

Google front page patent – Please do not call this a patent, I know you all love to poke fun at us but be a bit fair. Design patents are more like a trademark then a standard patent. Design patents only protect the appearance and not any of the tech behind it, they are used for anything from packaging to buildings. The design patent only provide very limited coverage as they only protect against near exact copies. Still love the show.

Tim the Patent examiner.
