Interesting thread on ILUG about the Esat BT Young Scientist of the Year. Apparently the browser plays DVDs, is a media player, browses the net 400% faster over a 56kbps telephone line, and it was patented only last Thursday. hmm. Software patented in Europe? Doesn’t it cost quite a bit to patent an invention? Anyway, there we go again, an Irish person wins something and the rest of us beat on him for it.. ’tis always the way!
