    great reporting here

    Wow, changed "speed" to "frequency" that's some in-depth analysis of the patent. I wonder if the person who wrote that feels shame, or if he's actually as clueless as this article makes him sound.

    "The second, titled "Method and apparatus for selectively increasing the operating speed of an electronic circuit," relates to a method and apparatus for selectively increasing the operating frequency of an electronic circuit."

    Forgot to study

    It sounds like a high school essay answer from the kid that forgot to show up for classes all semester.
