The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  6. You know, I think the patent system needs to change in that any company that owns patents that do not actively use them (i.e. develop IP that uses the patented technology) in a certain time frame (e.g. 10 years), the patent should become void or something because this is getting rediculous. I mean, at least with MS suing everyone they at least develop mobile software, wtf do these guys do but sit on the patents and sue?
