Scott McNealy's Warm Personal Vibrator!

Our first thought was that it was just Scott McNealy's longing for those good old COMDEX days spent by the Sun Microsystems' crew at the now closed Westward Ho! Motel on the Las Vegas Strip and where some of the readers of the IdeaCop(tm) no doubt will recall was one of the few places on the Strip, that for a mere 25 cents one could use the vibrating bed machine in each room after a stressful day on the exhibit floor (which self-pleasure appliances were, just like the SPARC Station, retrospectively, useless 'cutting edge' technology), but we are wondering ... is all of this what still causes Scott to spend money like a drunken sailor in continuing to prosecute this dead dog patent application no. 20020180693 entitled, Computer input device having heating and/or vibrating elements ?

After all, the application was filed just at the peak of Silicon Bust in June 0f 2001. But that, in and of itself, can't explain, to us, at least, why on earth Scott is continuing to flog a dead horse, notwithstanding the apparent draw of a warm vibrator, which Scott could use as an input device and keep close to his personal computer. Well, we suppose there has to be some come-on to sell Sun machines these days.

Oh, just like the maid cleaning up a dingy room at the Westward Ho, potentially material prior art for the subject patent application has to be exposed and shown the light of day and ... to the extent that it can help with that task, the IdeaCop will meet that challenge head-on, so to speak.

LET US MAKKE ONE THING CLEAR at the outset ... the IdeaCop(tm) is not known for, nor knows much about the design, operation or disposal of personal vibrators, warm or otherwise, so it may be that this is indeed a valuable, new, useful and unobvious invention, but in the event that one or more of our readers feels differently, they are encouraged to explore the potentially material references contained in the attached file and/or post their own references, to STOP THIS PATENT INSANITY!
