I reckon that’s enough of a Friday.

RT @mattytee_PT Don’t u remember a couple of years back she got criticised for cancelling xmas a couple of years back?

via TweetDeck

FFS! It’s November. Why are there Christmas banners in the city? Is Clover really such a whore?

My favourite quote from Federal Court today: “The experts on both sides are PhDs.” arseh.at/n6x

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “No easy answers in Apple-Samsung case” arseh.at/n6x

via TweetDeck

RT @dananimal: I am acquainted with some current, former & oscillating Brisbanites who’ve mutated it & now refer to Brisbane as bruised-anus

via TweetDeck

@JohnBirmingham So… it’s your fault? Or at least, you fail to KILL THE EVIL MEME?!??!?/11?!?!?! /cc @Distaudio

via TweetDeck

RT @Distaudio: I’m still trying to find the epic tard who came up with the term “Bris Vegas” so I can slap them. [Good thinking.]

via TweetDeck

After experiencing today’s court session, I agree with @lukehopwell “Apple and Samsung’s patent (thumb) war” arseh.at/n6s

via TweetDeck

@Tarale @posty Spelling is vastly underrated.

via TweetDeck in reply to Tarale

“Radelaide”? Oh FFS someone slap them.

via TweetDeck

@jplonie No, I didn’t go to AISA, I went to the eCrime Symposium instead. Ain’t quite mastered bilocation yet… /cc @ozdj

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

I have filed my story and now by brain is fading into severe blurriness.

via TweetDeck

Awaiting madam’s judgement before polishing the words. Words, I said. With a “W”.

via TweetDeck

@bullokie Ah well I’m in the Apple vs Samsung patent wormhole today. Facebook can… well… ladies present. I shall curb my tongue.

via TweetDeck in reply to zaploi

Damn, @ozdjm, I was hoping to talk you into a defamation suit. But you’re too canny for me.

via TweetDeck

By “rockstar CIO”, @ozdj, do you mean “drug-fucked egotistical self-indulgent self-aggrandising arsehole”? That is what you mean, yeah?

via TweetDeck

Disappearing into a patent-law wormhole.

via TweetDeck

I’m writing now, so shoosh. Or you’ll have @engochick to answer to.

via TweetDeck

Also, @SnarkyPlatypus, there’s a bunch of WWII-era emergency facilities under Macquarie St and surrounds. But they don’t have cold beer.

via TweetDeck

I am hiding in a SEKRIT underground bunker on Macquarie St, writing. Oh alright, it’s the Nippon Club.

via TweetDeck

@nphair Heh. This is just directions hearing. There’s already 7 cartons of evidence. Only the gods know what’s there Betamax? The Wheel?

via TweetDeck in reply to nphair

Lawyers currently agreeing on their timetable for providing documents over the next couple of weeks.

via TweetDeck

Court adjourned. What’s clear is the full complexity of this thing. We’re looking at hearings filling March-April…

via TweetDeck

Is Samsung trying to extend the action from the iPhone 4S to the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPad 2 as well? They seem to be. Want source code!

via TweetDeck

The two Apple vs Samsung cases have industry-wide implications so subsequent hardware releases won’t change anything, @AusRichie.

via TweetDeck

I am being a good boy. The tweet I was about to tweet has been deleted, ‘cos I suspect it would’ve been in contempt of court.

via TweetDeck

Lengthy discussion between judge and Samsung’s lawyers over whether Samsung must license its patents under ETSI FRAND rules.

via TweetDeck

Lengthy discussion of judge’s and both parties’ counsel’s availability during March-April 2012.

via TweetDeck

Discussing whether patent and competition issues must be considered together, or whether they can be separated. This is a complex case.

via TweetDeck

Apple’s lawyers trying to give judge a “snapshot” of how Australian cases fit within the context of all the similar actions internationally.

via TweetDeck

I’m not sure how well I can tweet this morning. It’s curly conversations about procedure.

via TweetDeck

Relates to whether Apple iPhone 4S breaches Samsung’s patents. Will claim it’s necessary technology to implement 3G, so allowed.

via TweetDeck

Apple’s lawyers warn this won’t be easy patent law, “will involve in our estimate considerable time for hearing”. PhD experts on both sides.

via TweetDeck

This is a direction hearing, re matters of hearing dates, issues to be determined at trial, appropriate way to move forward.

via TweetDeck

We’re in session…

via TweetDeck

This is Apple suing Samsung over the Galaxy Tab 10.1. As opposed to Samsung suing Apple over the iPhone 4S. arseh.at/n5v

via TweetDeck

If you missed it earlier, I’m covering Apple vs Samsung for @zdnetaustralia today, following on from arseh.at/n5f

via TweetDeck

RT @InnerWesty: Slight delay, my backup server is down. [Ah, the Majesty of Justice!]

via TweetDeck

And here we are in Court 1 on level 21 of the Federal Court building in Sydney. Samsung’s lawyers said it’ll be boring today. We shall see.

via TweetDeck

@jillhill99 I’ve not encountered Justice Bennett before. I’ll finish my coffee now and head up to her courtroom. Apple vs Samsung today.

via TweetDeck

Thanks for the other suggestions, @under_exposed @AbrasiveTeapot, I’ll consider next time. @fixstjames, when I need mere coffee, sure.

via TweetDeck

“Do smaller businesses think they’re immune to security threats?” arseh.at/n5u

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @jillhill99, Beanbah on Macquarie St won’t win an award for decor, but they cook bacon and eggs and serve with a smile.

via TweetDeck

@jillhill99 Food is what I want. “Atmosphere” is what you make of it. I am here, I have ordered, I am happy. Thank you again.

via TweetDeck in reply to jillhill99

@jillhill99 Thank you. And given that she called a directions hearing at 0915 on a Friday, I reckon Justice Bennett can pay.

via TweetDeck in reply to jillhill99

I am arriving at Sydney Central Station. I will catch a train to St James and figure it out from there.

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile Hmmm… The Hilton seems a bit sideways from actually getting to the Federal Court.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

And this. “The perfect place to take someone you don’t really like.” arseh.at/n5r

via TweetDeck

It opens at 0700, apparently, but the one review here is dismissive. arseh.at/n5q

via TweetDeck

Coffee can be had anywhere, @iain_chalmers. I want BREAKFAST. Now, @stufromoz @R_Chirgwin, does the court cafe actually do that? At 0800?

via TweetDeck

I had forgotten about the court cafe, @stufromoz @R_Chirgwin. I’m sure that’ll do nicely. Some sort of eggs appeal.

via TweetDeck

Anywhere near St James / Federal Court do a good breakfast? Quality trumps sheer size today.

via TweetDeck

@WealthForTeens Orly? I think we just solved it all, at least to my satisfaction. /cc @lukehopewell

via TweetDeck

Crossing the Nepean.

via TweetDeck

@lukehopewell I guess Twitter is OK for short wormholes, but for true spacetime warping we probably need BitTorrent.

via TweetDeck in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell Oh that last story dated 11/11 says “an order yesterday that Apple had until noon on 10 November”. Bennett J’s time machine?

via TweetDeck in reply to lukehopewell

I must say, the Blue Mountains is a rather lovely journey today, what with the mist in the valleys and the glow in the east.

via TweetDeck

RT @paulbradshaw: Great subtitling error describes how Martin Luther “nailed his faeces” to the door of a church

via TweetDeck

Coming up to speed on Apple vs Samsung, confused by dates in arseh.at/n5f Help me, @lukehopewell, you’re my only hope.

via TweetDeck

@Catichka I’d happily sleep, but I must be in Sydney at 0900.

via TweetDeck in reply to Catichka

So, the cabs were booked out for 0600. Had to get a cab at 0550. Result? Now catching the 0609 train to Sydney.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: 0620 train to Sydney; 0830 breakfast; 0915 Federal Court for Samsung v Apple; write about same; sort “Patch Monday” podcast; TGIF.

via TweetDeck

Friday. This is a mistake.
