Blah, blah, blah, if they push tons of dollars to the processor development, they would invent something more valuable than the idea of Moore's stack machine. Otherway they just keep the patent, waiting for other companies to get enought money to steal it.

So, they think they can take on the Taiwanese and Koreans, huh. Companies like these are what makes Law the most sought after profession over all others. They are of the creed who think that most money can be made out by fighting out in courts rather than in the marketplace.

To the uninformed: nothing was salvaged or cheap. These guys are the real deal. They have have been pouring tons of $ into processor development for over a decade, and I for one am glad to see this success story. It just goes to show that the corporate infringers can't get away with riding on the shoulders of others' innovations forever... and that there is hope for the little guy!

another bunch of scam artists trying to make a penny out of basic patents that they salvaged for cheap. does nothing but hinder innovation and demotivate engineers.

Ahh! Another Patent troll seeking free money from companies. On one end Engineers who make these technologies are getting laid off and on the other end the trolls are getting fat extracting the last ounce of blood from companies. Why cant the government intervene to fix the scenario?
