Amazing inventions

Palm has followed Handspring and licensed Research in Motion's extraordinary new technique of generating cold fusion energy at room temperature.

RIM has "a history of developing breakthrough wireless solutions", and the fusion patent allows it to create pagers that can run, quite literally, forever.

Licensing terms were not disclosed. Handspring licensed the fusion formula earlier this week.

Because of its profound, paradigm-shifting implications, RIM's work has been cloaked in secrecy. Licensees are not permitted to refer to the technique, called Quantum Wireless-Energy Room-Temperature Yield (QWERTY).

So the official press releases issued today are entitled "RIM To License Keyboard Technology To Palm".

RIM's aggressive defense of its energy breakthrough has been widely misunderstood - with the company gaining the nickname "Lawsuits in Motion". But the company's many detractors, who concluded that the company was intellectually bankrupt and reacting to competition by pursuing fatuous IP claims, were deeply misinformed, and were simply taking the "keyboard patent" cover story at face value.

Look out, Nokia. The quantum pagers are coming. ®
