that only makes money by making stupid patents and trying to sue MS.

dantesparda4034d ago (Edited 4034d ago )

is the fact that I bet if this had been Sony it was sueing, you'd be all excited and talking sh!t, so shut it and stop acting like a down little b!tch because its your beloved Ms that is being sued. All companies either sue each other or pay up when they realize their patents are being used. So suck it up kiddies. MS will be fine

This sad fan fucc keeps posting this garbage out of spite to bash the 360 yet he never posts news that doesn't make Sony look like god. You are a dragon card trading Sony fan troll.

dantesparda4034d ago

And so aint you, so whats up partner? Im responding back to one of your posts, and your sad little pathetic ass told me to never do that again. What i'd like to know is, "or else what"? Was you threatening me? How bout this for a change. Dont you ever respond to one of my posts again, alright partner. Now go of and play with your little video game system like a good little boy, ok kid. Peace, sucker

Little tommy tucker kigboy just found his white bread and butter for the day. I tell ya f-ing pathetic [shakes head]

Funny that you were always happy when there were some lawsuits against Sony and you always hoped Sony will lose, it's Sony's fault bla, bla, bla.
When some company does it with MS, it's a bullshit company then hahah fanboys in denial haha why are you so mad? Don't you want to get news? Or I know, you just want to read good news haha you are just pure comedy

ElementX4035d ago

"Haha" is getting so lame. It's just a stupid fanboyism, like a loser who's the only one who laughs at his own jokes.

FordGTGuy4035d ago

Microsoft were smart about it and paid the money and bought the company while Sony took them to court and loss even more money then they were told to pay in the first place. Microsoft didn't take the company to court because the patent wasn't BS. Now this company however is a BS company and has been proven one over time since 2003 and beyond. Please go hide in the everyone except me is a fanboy hole before you get caught in the wrong thread of the wrong news post.

Asuka4035d ago

you seem to forget that not every company has money like M$ does.

But i completely agree with you, sony went about the whole rumble thing the wrong way.

Daewoodrow4035d ago (Edited 4035d ago )

I don't recall anybody jumping around when Sony got sued. Alot of people laughed when Sony pretended they got rid of rumble on purpose though. Because that was funny.
This is in fact a bullsh*t company.

"Method And Apparatus for Facilitating Peer-to-Peer Application Communication"

Sounds like Limewire, Kazaa, morpheus, Bittorrent. Come to think about it. It sounds like the fu*king internet.

"Deterministic User Authentication Service for Communication Network"

Sounds like a telephone number. And an e-mail address. Your Sky satellite pin number.

"Method And Apparatus For Concurrently Encoding And Tagging Digital Information For Allowing Non-Sequential Access During Playback"

You have got to be kidding me. Any video file you can download with a fastfoward, rewind or progress slider option falls under this category.

"Method Of Setting Up Data Communication With A Communication Means And Furthermore Program Modules And Means Therefor"

Give me a few days while I translate this into English.
