  1. ITC is worse than Koh with their known biases. The whole patent thing aside, it’s a shame that companies can just rip into each other in every country, every market and when that isn’t enough go to some crappy made-up organization who has as much right to make decision as the failures called the UN or Nato.

  2. What is poen?

    1. My guess is that the letter ‘e’ in ‘poen’ should be an ‘r’, but that would cause the message to be trapped by s-p-a-m filters.

  3. Err… how can a phone be carbon free? It still uses energy to be charged which uses coal…

    1. Or Hydro Power, or Nuclear Power, or Wind Power, or Tidal Power, or Bio Fuel Power, or a combo of all of those.

      1. Right… but a vast majority of power comes from coal.

        1. You seem to be right, but none of my power comes from coal so it wouldn’t be a lie in my area.

  4. Apple is just a sore loser
