From a philosphical stand point, I agree with you, but from a business perspective it is a necessary evil.  Patents don't really provide that much protection.  Yes, its true it prevents an exact copy, but you are basically providing the blue prints to your competitors (with a patent disclosure), so You have to be on the "next big thing" before your competition can copy it.

In my opinion, we are doing things so fast that we don't have the time to celebrate the design wins.

By working so fast we are making our own creations obsolete for no reason and filling our backyards with still valid and working technology products.

 

Do we really need that break-neck speed?

Bruce, before the movie there was a book, and even books, with a author worth to know if you want children to like reading.

Have used SPICE simulation in the design phase. Very useful. Yes every engineer have felt that time is so less and so much to do...but may be we want to achieve so much quickly.
