Big Company Should Never Sue Future Young Geniuses. Sony Vs. Geo Hotz.

Big company should never sue young geniuses of the world they should sue someone their own size instead. Why? Because one they’re young they got no money to pay you it just makes you look like a bully and really stupid in the community. Also it can damage your company brand you don’t want to offend the geniuses community because there are a lot of smart people out there that can really screw with your company if they really wanted to just for fun. Rather than trying to sue them you should try to hire them instead. Bring them to your company campuses woo them with benefits and salary to work for you. If you don’t then your competitor or other company will. Case in point  Johnny Lee Wii Remote. Did Nintendo sue him because he hacked the Wii remote no. Microsoft we ended up bringing him to campus and hiring him on the spot. Microsoft did not sue these people when they started to hack the KINECT sensor. Modification and hacking of existing product is very crucial and essential for improvement and future innovation breakthrough. Look at the KINECT mod projects Microsoft did not discourage hacking of the sensor but rather encouraged it.

If there were no hacker or modder to tink around with devices and invention these projects would not come to be. Some of the greatest mind and inventor are tinker, hacker, modder Thomas Edison for example hacked the telegraph. So when Sony decided to sue Geo Hotz for hacking and moding their PSN system.

It really offended a lot people. For one thing he is only 21 he is not going to have money to pay your court case and lawyer fees. How can you sue the first person that unlock and jailbreak the very first iphone. When Sony decided to go through with the lawsuit they really pissed off and offended a lot of the hacker community. Now they are paying for it when their 77 million users credit card are hacked and being sold online. Look at the flood of stream of article about the latest breach. Just do a search on any search engine.

This is going to cost Sony millions if not billions to patch all 77 million account which has been compromised. The bottom line is don’t sue young geniuses especially when you know it does more damage to your company system and brand than good. Companies should learn from these events and should not continue with these practices of suing future young geniuses. I mean where would the world technology be today if it weren’t for these geniuses. In the beginning Gates and Zuckerberg were pirates, hackers, coders without them today there would be no Microsoft or Facebook. If you’re going to sue anybody make sure they’re big enough to pay you. So go line up your lawyers to sue people or company like Apple Amazon or the Gates and Zuckerberg of today if you dare you’ll just be a number on their list. When they get to the court room they will just toy with your lawyers and give them the run around.

Gates Deposition. United States VS. Microsoft

Electronic Hardware Need to be Rightfully Price for Consumer Electronics. 2011-2012 The Tablet Years.

When a product that is hot sell well is because it's rightfully price. If you want your product to go mass penetratration then the key is to have a quality product with the right price. Epescially in Electronics since the models will get outddated every year. Product pricing have to make sense. 
  1. Flat Panel TV and Projects (Most expensive ticket items)
  2. Server computer (This cannot be more expensive than your TV Display unless it's a powerful machine)
  3. Desktop computer (Future will be Surface computer cannot be more expensive than server typically)
  4. Laptop computer (should not be more expensive than your desktop computers unless it's a luxury brand)
  5. Games Consoles cannot be more expensive than your laptop computers.
  6. Tablet or Slate computer cannot be more expensive than laptops and desktop computer ideally it should be cheaper than games consoles but that's not likely going to happen it prob around the same range.
  7. Smartphone cannot be more than tablet and other top computers etc...
 Today when you see a tablet that goes for a thousand dollar or more most likely the majority of consumer will wait and stay way until price drop. So 2011-2012 if it's all going to be about tablets then the price need to be around 250-600 anymore than this it's too pricy. We will see a whole new line of tablets coming out this year. The ideal specs should be 7hrs plus  battery, light and thin. No Fan strictly solid slate with instant on and off. Able to take anywhere outside readility even under direct sun light. Ipad is useless in the sun. Facetime camera for video skyping, HDMI input ideally plug into every tv for HD video streaming output. SD Card slot for your photo upload from your camera. Input device for docking for those that want it to turn into a laptop. Easy file transfer between the cloud, home network and work network make it seemless and painless today this is still a struggle for average joe consumer. The company that able to do these thing well will likely sell the most units. It's going to be interesting to see who will take the most units in the tablet arena. This is still new we will see.

  • Here is a case a really good tablet however too expensive ... Now it's crossing the laptop arena. It will prob drop next year. The main reason why it is expesnive is because of the Solid State Hard drive.
