futuremark trademarks pwnage

So futuremark thinks they can trademark the term “pwnage”.  This has been floating around the net for a few days, but what I found funny was the followup (damage control) that they posted here.

Fellow gamers,

Our purpose in filing for trademark on the name “Pwnage” is not to charge money or stop people from using the expression. That’s not what a trademark is for. Instead, we want to protect ourselves from squatters (or what I call campers) – people looking to trademark the name on false pretenses, just to make a claim against Futuremark Games Studio for its use.

In essence, Jukka has described that what they are attempting to do is exactly what they are trying to prevent.

Insane bullet ricochet

I’ll have to say this is one of the craziest things I’ve seen in a while. It has been around the net for a while, but I felt like sharing. 

Good to be here

Ok, so i’m jumping on the blog bandwagon.  Look for steady stream of tech related post.  I will be posted what I’m working on and cool stuff I find around the web.
