re: Tesla: All our patents are belong to you - OrangeBlood
[quote]I read the actual claim. As a former photographer, I honestly find nothing novel in it. [/quote] 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.

[quote]Would Coog High try to go to Corpus or someplace else in effort to get away from Austin?[/quote] 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...

re: Austin BBQ: Franklin vs La Barbecue - OrangeBlood
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 ...

re: Mississippi St OC Les Koenning to Texas - OrangeBlood
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. ...

[quote]Word on the street is that Watson and Wickline will be co-OC. Which means that Watson is the OC, but due to the negative feedback from the initial word that he was the guy, Strong has to hide that fact under the co-OC contrivance. This also means that Texas whiffed on a "splash" OC hire. [/q...

re: Charlie Strong facing a power struggle already in hiring his people - OrangeBlood
Two things. Your first paragraph is actually not accurate. There are exceptions - broad ones - to the posting/waiting period laws. People assume Strong always wanted to bring in Watson but his public comments actually refute this notion, mainly because Watson does not have Texas ties and is n...
