    Motions to dismiss

    Why did the court deny Verizons previous motion to dismiss? This was a joint motion by the parties to dismiss, not by the court. As a matter of fact, the court has not yet ruled on their request.

    They can't claim invalidity by prior art ,and if the inventor is the one who published what they are stating is the prior art. Did he steal from himself? That is ludicrous, so they must be trying to claim that he is not one of the inventors because his contributions were not significant enough. If they were not significant enough then so to was the prior art they claimed he published, or he stole from the rightful inventor. Anyway you look at the situation Verizon doesn't have a case. They were riding or a wing and a prayer before they crashed. Once T Mobile comes to the understanding that Verizon will have to settle or have the case re-opened they will come to terms also. If Verizon doesn't have a defense then neither do they since neighter one of them in their motions have claimed to have invented the technology in question, so who did? We all know, the judge knows, all the attorneys know. It is just a matter of time till everyone else knows.

    I agree, Microsft, Apple, Somy, Erricson would not have been the success stories they are without talented people with a vision to make these kind decisions. They have become leaders in the field of technology because they have gifted people who make very difficult, expensive decision, and the determination to be successful by ensuring their visions come to reality. The key to these results are their abilities to know and judge talent and surround themselves with gifted people and they chose well once again by their association and choice of Anthony Hayes to litigate these very expensive patents. Mr. Hayes realizes that he is under a microscope and being viewed by very powerful and demanding clients. He is not going to stop any of these cases without a fight that has not lead to results his backers desire. Their choice in him is both a gift, and a certainly a curse if he is not successful. Doors will be opened, and they could surely be closed for him. So, if anyone thinks that AT&T and Verizon were anything but successful outcomes they do not understand the drive and motivations involved in his litigation campaign and it's importance to his future. Always bet on gifted, determined people first and foremost in investment decisions.

    Is it any wonder we are over $17 Trillion in debt.? Constantly paying for programs that make no fiscal sense. Bunch of do gooders doing much more harm than good at any cost. Vote them out of office while there is still an office to occupy.

    Or is Obama blowing wind up America's Butt.

    "The International Energy Agency recently cut its forecasts for oil demand growth for this year. Nevertheless, production in North America is exploding led by the shale oil boom. Already, the U.S. has become the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas.

    For energy products like oil and natural gas operating in the marketplace, this excess production means lower costs for consumers. Lower prices have their own consequences for the industry as well. Analysts at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co recently released a report revealing that current at prices as much as one-third of U.S. shale oil production will be “uneconomic” to harvest.

    For government-backed industries such as wind energy, the relationship is directly the opposite -- the more they produce, the more it costs ratepayers and taxpayers. Recent analysis shows that states with the largest use of wind power have the highest electricity bills. Such factors have caused private investors to largely bypass wind companies and leave them largely dependent upon the government for their survival.

    Wind energy companies rely heavily upon a government construct known as the “Production Tax Credit” (PTC) to support their bottom lines. The PTC is a federal program that provides billions of dollars annually to subsidize renewable energy facilities such as wind farms. Generally speaking a clean technology facility receives a tax credit for 10 years after the date the facility is placed in service with the tax credit amount ranging from $0.23 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for wind to $0.011 per kWh for qualified hydroelectric...."

    SPEX ... so quiet suddenly

    ""*As a point of clarification, minor rebalance events
    including month-end share changes and IPO
    additions will remain unchanged in the U.S. and
    Global series."
    annual re-balancing is scheduled every June, however the 24/7 article was referring to minor month end share changes and predicted certain stocks that will be impacted of which SPEX was not mentioned. If the changes are significant they usually request a trading halt. Be nice if it happened to us, but I doubt it, but you never know?
