Patent Nonsense

January 20, 2014 11:20:00.862

This is why I'm starting to think that a system with no patents or copyright would be better than what we have now. Amazon got a patent for... predictive stocking:

So Amazon says it may box and ship products it expects customers in a specific area will want based on previous orders and other factors — but haven’t yet ordered. According to the patent, the packages could wait at the shippers’ hubs or on trucks until an order arrives.

You see that stuff your grocery store does each week? Same thing. But some set of morons at the USPTO couldn't figure it out.
