All Your Patents Are Belong To IBM

Posted December 17, 2012 by Shawn Saavedra in Gadgets

IBM has predicted your life in five years – well, if your life centers around your smartphone – which is to say, IBM has predicted my life.

In doing so, I’m guessing they have snapped up every conceivable patent with even a sixteenth-cousin, twice removed relationship to the functions in question.

So, if you’ve ever thought, “Man, wouldn’t it be great if my phone could ______” well, you’re too late – stop thinking now or you’ll find yourself in front of a judge.

On the other hand, if you’re as creative as I am, swing over to the Mail Online and discover the many ways your pocket sized overlord might shower its benevolence upon you.
