So, it's just hardly on par with a 980ti, will most likely not overclock as good, and will most likely run hotter, yet AMD will sell it for probably the same price? This company is doomed. NVIDIA are probably laughing in their conference rooms. "Yea you can scratch that price drop off the board."
While I don't feel Apple have a chance to catch up with Google Maps, I think Google need to step it up a notch to one-up them. A lot of Street View still has very outdated photos in terrible quality.
1. You actually can if you're manufacturing the case yourself.2. It's actually nothing like that. They're not stealing cases out of CaseLab's factories and selling them as Thermaltake cases.
Legally, yes, I don't think there's much that will come out of this in Case Lab's favor. Morally? That would be subjective. There are only so many ways you can make a specific item look. It's hard enough to enter into any existing market nowadays. Should you be barred from starting a successful business just because there are no more possible (and practical) new physical design choices that don't already exist?
Sigh. The brands mentioned in the example aren't the point. The point is that this happens in every industry. You can't just say "I made this product, you can't make another product that looks like it and compete with me!" It's not that easy. Think of how ridiculous that would be and the impact it would have on the economy. Only one company would be able to make pencils (unless others make some odd shaped pencils that are far too awkward to write with). Furniture? Forget...
12:41 sums it up pretty well, /thread
Yawn. Still chillin on a 2500k here. I miss the days of AMD's 3200+, first FX CPUs, and x800xt. The value was unmatched. My parents are still running on my old 3200+ with Win7. Runs great for its age.
Sigh.Yes, Metallica would sue you if you burned copies of their albums and resold them.They wouldn't (or couldn't) sue you if you used their same instruments (or even some of their band members) to produce Metallica-inspired heavy metal music to sell.Unless you know something that I don't, Thermaltake aren't stealing CaseLabs cases off their assembly line to sell them for less.
And, in this case (pun intended), you can VERY easily identify the difference....Sooooo...
Yea I dunno. I don't really see the problem. CaseLabs are sort of pulling an Apple on this one. I'm no patent lawyer, but as far as I know, a design patent protects a NEW, ORIGINAL, design. I wouldn't consider a plain black box very new nor original. I just did a quick search for design patents protecting PC cases in particular, and the first thing I came across says:http://www.bitlaw.com/patent/design.htmlThis happens in any industry that relies heavily on the appeal of a...
