I think the next suit will be over the method of using an appendage attached to the hand in order to depress a button.

they hold a joystick voltage patent AND a  "system for managing access by mobile users to an interconnected communications network where a billing authority is identified by a billing code from the user." patent why in the hell would someone have to things with no relation as patents. i swear the U.S should have laws prenveting ppl and companies from aquirring patents that have nothing conceivably to do with eachoter, other than suing future companies that actually use the technology.

No, they will just selectively sue the ones with the most money.
