I'd say these patent trolls have no chance, but the article mentions that Microsoft already opted to license the patent from Ironburg. It's a shame Microsoft caved, because it'll be an uphill battle for Valve now.

Of course, "Ironburg/SCUF" doesn't actually make any fucking products, but what are you going to do when they've already won one case against Microsoft?

Incidentally, they stopped selling the Steam controllers? I still use mine occasionally, best PC controller I've had.

2 seconds of Google would tell you they do, in fact, make high end controllers. https://scufgaming.com/

Well look at that, I had never heard of them before. *EDIT* Nevermind, with all the options, it approaches 200 dollars for their controllers. Nope!


Those don't even look that bad.
A maxed out headphone is $172. Biggrin

Maybe they'll offer a discount now that they've made a cool easy $4mil.

I don't care how good management is, if you don't have a good office manager you're pretty well hosed.

My father raved about his secretary (I don't know the proper term for it now, maybe office manager or administrative assistant)
But if he had to be out of town or on a week's vacation with us, he'd get back and it was like he'd never been gone.

Ok so having an issue that the website's text are garbelled, so using a chrome extenstion I have to set the site's encoding to UTF-8 (on the main page). Anyone else experiencing this or is it on my end?

This has popped up intermittently for a while now. Frans has put a lot of effort into tracking it down, but an answer continues to elude us. It's maddeningly inconsistent. As noted, it will randomly go away and/or return if you hit refresh, so it sort of defies logic what's going on.

I've seen this before. It looks like the quotes and hyphens in the database are Word formatted. The browser does its best to convert them into ASCII but may occasionally get stuck.

I don't know anything about databases or formatting, is this "Word formatted" stuff something you've investigated.
Can it even be changed?

Troubleshooting intermittent things is what separates the cats from the dogs.

And muchos thanks for all the effort you've put in to something so minor.
You're the best!

The jurors were mailed valve controllers. (Not scuf, and that was what i was referring to)
You don't have to make a product to defend your patent.

Obviously there was enough evidence to convince them that the Valve controller infringed on the patent.
If you read the patent and look at valves controller, it's pretty obvious.

They looked at pretty pictures online and made a legal decision over it.
They were mailed controllers so they got to fondle and handle them just like anybody else.
There's several links in that patent page that I posted.
Blue has posted some other stuff so if you read everything and still feel the same way, not about the patent troll part but about the ruling.
I think the ruling is sound.
I doubt valve appeals.

Such an interesting case, first of its kind.
The eight jurors were each mailed a Steam Controller.
I wonder if they get to keep it.

They make controllers.

Does it matter who makes the boulder roll? SCUF is not a patent troll, but they just opened the flood-gates with this for actual patent trolls
I'm sorry, but the patent troll floodgate has been open for a long time.

Happy Birthday Idaho Software!
That's too many states away.
id is headquartered in Richardson which is a suberb of the capital of Texas, Dallas.

On a serious note how did id Software get its name.

Edit
Found it: the group identified itself as "Ideas from the Deep" in the early days of Softdisk but that, in the end, the name 'id' came from the phrase "in demand".

75 million people have gotten better. One of them put his pants on backwards by accident one morning. He now swears that if you put your pants on backwards it is the cure.

This reminds me of the ads I see warning "never eat this vegetable" and it leads to a 30 minute long YouTube video that leads to a subscription that never tells you about the vegetable you're not supposed to eat.
