"don't be evil": Google tries to patent a student's work after the student demos it in an interview https://patentpandas.org/stories/company-patented-my-idea
Sorry, maybe that was too cryptic. Those patenters (Google and whoever that other one was) were evil and should be treated like it.
@robey Why am I not surprised that Google has reached a new low with its pettiness?
(I mean, I don't think this is representative of all people at Google, but incidents such as this one will only bring negativity to Google's general public image, which is however it is already.)
@robey why am I not surprised... 🙄 I hope he slaps them with a lawsuit and gets a nice settlement at least
