Patent trolls are the worst, and that's coming straight from the top. President Obama on Thursday answered a question about patent trolls during his Google+ Fireside Hangout, and he didn't have anything nice to say about them. The President didn't exactly call trolls "the worst," but his comments were not far off.
Was the State of the Union earlier this week fun, but just not enough President for you? Well, good news -- Obama is doing a Google Hangout, and we'll have the live stream right here. This isn't Obama's first "Fireside Hangout" -- he did one about a year ago -- but it's the first one of his second term, and hopefully a sign that these will be a habit going forward. Yes, it's going to be at least a little canned and PR-ish, but hey, it's the damn President, nothing's not at least sort of planned. Still, it's a fun way to be interactive that doesn't make anyone leave the office, and that works for us. Plus, you might get an answer for why the hell we still make pennies, and wouldn't that be nice?
