If you have one lawyer in a small town, he will starve.  If you add a second lawyer they will both get rich.  Further, a lawyer I worked with years (decades) ago told of a picture in the library where he went to law school.  Entitled the "Lawsuit" it was a picture of a cow.  One litigant was pulling on the horns, the other on the tail.  While went on the lawyer was milking the cow.  Anybody see a similarity here?

Slide to Unlock Patent - Huh?

They seem to place a lot of weight on the Slide-To-Unlock feature which appears to be patented.  Exactly what is the benefit of this?  Does anyone know.

To me it's a nothing but a nuisence.  I wish I could turn it off.

I'm with you Junko.  I always wondered that myself.  Fascinating is true!

Certainly a lot of calculation. Again these numbers are provided by Apple and vellturo had to build right reasoning.

Looks like Apple and SAmsung patent fight is never ending one. Guess its more like a business for everyone. For some to keep themselves busy and for others to make money.

Looking at this squabble between Apple and Samsung - I start liking Chinese copycats. We should do case study for this.

@zeeglen, can't argue with that. But egnineers also benefit from lawyers' work -- if they argue successfully in court to value engineers' work.

It's mostly BS.  Very highly-paid BS because it is precise to 4 decimal places.  Engineers design, liars lawyers get rich off their efforts.

I was always curious how in the world laywers come up with these figures. It's a fascinating back and forth in the courtroom drama!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
