So, I have only one question.

If patent 6826744 and 7076521 are unenforceable, where are the flood of products that should be out there by now based on the patents?

Not.

We do see Microsoft pressing full steam ahead but that's to be expected. We know they have a license for 6826744 from July 2008.

Based on Microsoft's descriptions of Windows Mobile 7 they appear to be able to use 7076521.

but ...

We don't see Google, or Adobe or IBM trumpeting anything close.

Open-source? Amazon just licensed what Microsoft has. Just how "unenforceable" is this brave new web-based computing world?

Apparently not very.

If you don't believe it, simply enter a comment and explain why. I'm all ears... and fingers.
