[quote]I read the actual claim. As a former photographer, I honestly find nothing novel in it.
Interesting - then you've put more thought into it than everyone else writing about it which is good.
Companies get patents all the time that they probably have some doubt about their va...

[quote]I would likely be pissed if I was an invester in Tesla. I mean, why give it away? License the frick out of the technology, THEN encourage innovation.
As a patent attorney, this is the better answer IMO - for honest companies that want to legally use Tesla's IP, license it to them,...

Honestly I don't know how it works exactly so don't know if they could. Houston's best chance for having a 50-50 fan split is at their home park. Any other field in the state and it's going t...

Many factors weigh in Houston's favor. RPI and knocking off a national seed being the top two. Stadium size, strength of schedule in a better conference are in Texas's favor...

The committee meets tonight to decide. If it comes down to RPI then Houston will get it. It's one of many factors.
Maybe Texas should hope Houston hosts. Texas hits fifty points better on the road....

| Food and Drink Board|| re: Austin BBQ: Franklin vs La Barbecue - OrangeBlood on 4/17/14 at 11:55 am|
I work about a mile from both - previous advice is spot on, Franklin's brisket is just a tad, a tad, better than La BBQ (the pitmaster at La BBQ learned at Franklin). Ribs and pulled pork are comparable - but I think the sausage at La BBQ is much better. Typically the wait is a lot less at La BBQ ...

Kind of strange move - OC to WR coach. But I read his title at MSU was largely just that.
Texas fans are not thrilled mainly because the WR coach is often a fireball recruiter and they don't think Les fits that bill. ...
