They could make the factory in a decommisioned military base, make the snakes grow to giant size and super intelligent before extracting the venom. What could possibly go wrong??
I can see this being settled out of court. I assume Bruce can afford to hire top class lawyers that would give Apple a run for their money and I'm sure they wouldn't want to set a precedent if they lost.
Just who is buying these shares now the price has plunged? Are they expecting a rally on the price or just getting razor thin margins when selling on?

Re: I like the way...
Maybe the vacuum to fill is a wireless DVD drive that sits in a large enclosure that looks like 20 leather bound books on a shelf? Impressive to look at, easy to update AND cheaper and more eco friendly that actual books.

All the Americans need do is get up there in the shuttle, fill the cargo bay and then return to earth. Oh, wait a minute ...
Justa One Corrrnetto, Geeve Eet To Meee!

I'm an avid fan of MotoGP/Moto2/125s/BSB/WSB in case you haven't worked it out. F1? FOAD!
