LOL...We can tell our grandkids about them, like record players and cassette tapes, and they'll just look at us and smile, of course they'll have to pay NTP royalties on smiling, I heard they have a patent on that too.

On a serious note, CNBC had a gentleman on with the best idea for the court case, and I believe it may happen. He was saying the judge could order a partial injunction, or rather a moratorium on new subscribers. Meaning everyone with a BB currently should be ok, but no new accounts until a settlement. The judge is hoping this will force both side to settle. Yes the new accounts would include BES accounts as well since they employ the patents being disputed. We'll see, but I'm sure not until Wed/Thurs of next week at the earliest.
