    open sourcing java

    I think it would be a good idea. There is a fear that sun will not exist one day but open sourced java would live on.

    But maybe they are afraid of what people would say about the code. :)

    Patent bullshit

    Mmkay, I'm going to take music, and then patent it so that any time anybody creates a device that plays music on the go, that person has to pay me a lot of money. Yea, that will make me rich. Good deal.

    "Excuse me sir. I just heard you whistling there. Did you buy my patent that allows you to listen to your own music while you're walking down the street? No? I'll take $10000 from you then. Thanks."

    Suffice to say, it's it's not an "invention" to make music play in a small device that can be carried around, any more then portable TVs, cell phones, or even PDAs (computers on the go). Maybe it's a patent if you make a SPECIFIC device that does one of those things, but the idea is not a unique one. Just one more example of how f**ked up patent laws are.
