    Yeah I know, that sounds a little awkward right? But yeah, LG know for smartphones, Oled UHD TVs, laptops, tables and well, electronics, in general, has received a patent for a Gaming PC. ...

    I wouldn't have thought you could get a patent for something this suttle. I don't think this patent would hold up if they tried to enforce it as there is way to much prior art that is very similar.

    Don't forget LG use to be Goldstar.
    Remember those cheap crappy electronics from the 80's.

    Note sure what all these companies see in 1960's space-age design.

    Reminds me of this

    Looks like a droid that you'd see from the Empire.

    Can any generic bullshit ANYTHING be patented outside the US? Or is such insanity exclusive? This doesn't surprise me because Apple patented a fracking rectangle with icons on it, and won in court after suing.

    I've seen toilets with less generic designs.

    Edit: Oh... almost didn't realize -

    Yeah but... this is beyond a rectangle - it's a box. That's 1 whole additional dimension! If that's not awe-inspiring creativity that needs protection, I don't know what is!

    You mean less crappy?:rolleyes:

    The LETSGODIGITAL part is super annoying, and yes I agree, least to say it looks like an escapee from star-wars...

    Apple already holds the crown when it comes to garbage can glorification.
