Michael Sutton, Kiwi Inventor sues Nokia for patent infringement

, posted: 3-May-2007 15:47

Its all over the news, apparently Michael Sutton owns the patent to technology that is described in various news sources as "very similar to SMS - short messaging service / system"

this is an interesting predicament. I have two views,

the first is that if he did indeed invent it, and patent it then pursue this at all costs.

the second is that, if that passes, how will this affect the rest of the mobile industry? everything uses sms these days.

any further information would be appreciated, all the info I can find doesn't say much, except for filling out the articles with irrelevant or semi-relevant information.

He is my ex neighbour. I lived next door to him for about 4 years and we had many a conversation around technology. He is a very smart man. 6 years ago he had the global rights for streaming BBC content over IP networks and we were playing with codecs for iPaq over cellular. It was great - very cool stuff back then. Good luck to him.

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!

Who knows! 

but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!

I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Mobile Devices
*general and specific ramblings
*Dvorak Keyboard

Mobile devices and more
