    Hug? Maybe funeral would be more appropriate . . .

    Sign of the times. When you have a tech enterprise don't hire engineers, architects, technicians, poets, painters, fashion models etc. No, no, no...you get lawyers! That's where the money is.

    RIM was definitely cocky back in 2008. It felt that it could do no wrong then, so it had no reason to settle.

    Had RIM chosen to settle four years ago, it would not be facing a $147M loss now.

    RIM overestimated how good its lawyers were when it chose to take this case to trial, rather than settling.

    It would be nice if the patent trolls stopped beating the crap out of the dead horse...

    "According to its web site, Mformation helps corporations manage their smart phone inventory."

    Really? Patent trolls!

    The ruling has just been reversed, so no payout for Mformation, they can of course appeal but then they will have to go back and file again and there would have to be a new trial.
