My heart bleeds
Once upon a time I used to design cellular equipment. I fondly remember a Qualcom IPR salesman and what he quite openly told us. I believe anyone in the business who has been in that position knows exactly what he told us at the time (we were looking at starting to build 3G kit in addition to our existing and fully IPR covered 2G).
My heart bleeds and I am crying with crocodile tears... Could not have happened to a nicer, friendlier and more benevolent company.
