In late August, Bloomberg Law published an article which reported that Mountain View, CA-based Internet tech giant Google had conducted its first-ever sale of patent assets in the U.S. brokered patent market. Data collected and provided to Bloomberg from the Richardson Oliver Law Group shows that Google had sold 207 assets, including 138 U.S. patents, in a single deal this year. The U.S. patents sold by Google covered lithium-ion battery-related technologies, which Google had first acquired in 2012 from its acquisition of the Motorola Mobility portfolio. Google’s patent package was first listed on the brokered market in the second quarter of this year and in June, the lithium-ion portfolio was purchased by Chinese battery maker Amperex Technology. Although Google has sold the larg
Looking back at the series of bloody car crashes that have constituted the last year in politics, the only positive I can come up with is that 2018 is very nearly over. Whether it was the cruel dishonesty of US President Donald Trump, the ineffectual floundering of Prime Minister Theresa May, or the appalling rise of anti-Semitism in Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party, the past 12 months had something for every kind of masochist.And there’s little to suggest that 2019 is going to be much better. Trump knows now that his war on immigrants and a free press plays wonderfully well with his base, May retains her position as the midwife of a Brexit she believes will damage the UK, and Corbyn – who deplores all kind of racism, apparently – shows no compulsion to properly ch

The prolonged journeyÂ of TTACâs Ford SierraÂ is partly because of my prolonged recovery from Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. WhileÂ other projectsÂ never help matters, the excuses end now. Because, even during the depths of my recovery, my vision never faltered; thanks to prednisoneâs side effects during treatment, said vision became a C4 Corvette-likeÂ laser-infused slalomÂ but with Young the GiantÂ screeching in the background. SoÂ itâs about time I drove to my friend Brianâs shop and made it happen. Letâs do it, but remember the mission: to improve performance via Ford donor cars of the era, honoring the time when boneheaded computers made radical aerodynamic shapes that altered our automotive landscape. The 1989 Merkur XR4tiâs superior suspension, brakes
Forecasts for winter storms can be uncertain even a day or two in advance.Maps showing long-range snow forecasts from individual computer models should be disregarded. Major winter storms affect the United States every year, and due to their heavy impact on everyone's lives, the biggest question asked is: How much am I going to see? The eagerness to know how much impact a snow or ice storm will have is understandable, but unfortunately, sometimes that question cannot be answered until within one to three days of its arrival. This thirst to know what will happen can often be fed by those computer model forecasts of snow amounts that often go viral on social media. Sometimes you might see these maps with pretty blue, pink and purple shadings up to a week or so in ad
Reddit bills itself as the front page of the Internet. If one were to extend this metaphor, then AskReddit would be the headline splashed across the top of that front page, because there is nothing as consistently exciting, absorbing, and cringe-worthy as the posts on AskReddit. The premise is simple: ask a question, any question, and the Reddit community will answer. But because this is the internet we're dealing with, threads frequently devolve into a free-falling tailspin. A thread asking for advice can become a real-time live blog, with the poster following the community's wisdom and uploading the results. A request for personal stories can become a group therapy session for people suffering from similar traumas, or a forum to reveal painful secrets. There are creepy stories about...
