01:41, Albeyamakiir> People already try.
01:42, Logicalerror> Sort of like patenting genes.
01:43, Logicalerror whispers: Which really freaks me out.
04:45, Albeyamakiir> It's an abuse of the patent system, really.
04:45, Albeyamakiir> Harms innovation.
05:52, 4616599 whispers: Talking about innovation, anyone finds the image in this article horrifying? http://www.fastcompany.com/1819197/is-the-smartphone-at-an-evolutionary-de ad-end-yup
09:33, Cryoburner whispers: Is it really fair that all the iClones have their screens turned off though?
09:40, Cryoburner whispers: And in 10 years, everyone will view huge, clunky touch-screen phones as we view boomboxes today.
10:18, Serpens whispers: You think they will become much smaller, or replaced by something else entirely?
11:00, Cryoburner whispers: They will be replaced by boomboxes, with built-in phones.
12:02, Kynreeve whispers: They will be replaced by magic 8-balls.
15:11, 4616599 whispers: Turtles! Terrapin phones will be the new fashion! Small, clunky, touch-screen but absolutely adorable and easy to hold, feed and care for!
18:22, Neuzd whispers: Ahem, ten years ago the race was all about having the smallest phone possible. Now it's quite the opposite, so I don't think the phones size debate can ever get settled.
18:23, Neuzd> And on a more relevant note: happy birthday to the greatest explorer the galaxy has ever seen.
21:46, Cryoburner> Happy Birthday, Kristin Davis!
21:51, Neuzd whispers: Shhhh! You were not supposed to reveal the real name behind that user's nickname!
