    Did you know... If the internet stopped talking about patent trolls, bitcoin and flappy birds... the internet would stop talking.

    Bar some memes and the folks at 4chan, you're right.

    Yeah, it would just be cats, porn and facebook.

    Anyway, I'm surprised how low their psu division went for. $850k is like the price of an expensive house. For a small group of people looking for a startup in the tech industry it could've been a great opportunity.

    To paraphrase James May a little here... "Oh cock..."

    This will probably not end well, I was hoping someone would pick these up and maybe sort the QC a bit. My GameExtreme is still going strong, but I gather the later ones didn't fare as well.

    Oh FFS! I HATE patent trolls. Its not so bad in the mobile space because I don't really care, but when it starts in PC hardware too......
