Great chance for Google to finish off Apple’s patent nonsense with evidence that Apple’s patents are invalid.

In many countries that allow Patents, the idea and patent remains valid only while the inventor is alive, and working at the company.

Patents aren’t assignable to a company.

What Apple has done is created a pretty amazing work environment, where its engineers are paired-up with legal counsel to develop patents based on recent courseware tought in college. Once the patent is filed, oftentimes, the engineer is let go because they’re not really needed anymore.

Then, Apple employees are reminded of their NDA which is similar to a Gag order.

Basically, Apple is a company who will use legal maneuvering, and sometimes public relations and advertising to achieve its goals. Right now, those goals are of a dead man who loved his vegan diet so much, to die for it; even after a liver transplant. On his death bed, he said “Destroy Google’s Android”.

I’ve read a number of comparisons of Steve Jobs to people in mental institutions; and Hitler. It’s somewhat disappointing that anyone looked up to him, including Apple employees; but like Hitler, Steve Jobs has a lot of people in his reality distortion field.
