+ - Patent Troll sues... uh... just about everyone-> 1

Submitted by zaba
zaba (746842) writes "A company named PersonalWeb Technologies has decided a host of heavy players in the tech industry, including Apple, Facebook, IBM, Microsoft and Yahoo! for patents it holds related to data processing.

They have a previous suit against other big names like Amazon, Google and HP.

Anyone care to guess where the company is based or where the suits were filed?"

    Dam this troll is patenting the shave and not the razor
    as best I can tell with a quick glance.

    These tolls and others like them need to be given a hard
    look by the feds for interfering with interstate commerce.

    One of the things I see is that programming abstractions
    are being opened (see folding editor) and the contents
    of the opened fold enumerated as patented claims.
