Polished up my grammar a bit...

Since there was no real thread for useless but nonetheless
interesting links I thought I'd create one.

I could guess, but what about it is odd?

I think that it is really weird that the AP, during WW2, could make a deal with Nazi Germany for photos and that the photos kept coming until V-E day.

What if they'd won? Eggs > basket.

Are you suggesting that the Associated Press might have defeated Nazi Germany?!

(Joking...)

Hold the celebrations...

"Update: The appears to be considerable confusion throughout media coverage of this ruling. The ruling narrowly limited a company's "residence" to the place of incorporation, but patent lawsuits may still be filed anywhere "the defendant has committed acts of infringement and has a regular and established place of business." As a result, it appears patent lawsuits can still be filed against Apple in many jurisdictions, including the Eastern District of Texas."

Yeah, dammit, just came back to post that. Apple should close all offices in East Texas. Yes, Apple Stores and Austin call centers, too, if they are in East Texas.

Austin's in Central Texas. Biggest city in East Texas is Beaumont, population 110K. It'd be cool if all the tech companies boycotted the area.

It'll be the 20th century; they can shop in the mall department stores.

I feel that most situations in my life can be summed up with a Simpsons, Futurama, or Archer reference. This pleases me.

For me it's usually Simpsons, Blazing Saddles or Idiocracy. Everything's coming up Milhouse!
