  • Patent Tales July 15, 2014
    July’s stroll through the Wonderful World of Patents was likened to Alice falling down the rabbit hole.  This week’s post is more like Billie Goats Gruff making a run for it over the  troll-dominated Bridge of Willful Patent Infringing.   Audiologists rarely read patents, but eventually they are affected by patent skirmishes […]

  • The Decline of Polite Behavior July 16, 2014
    I have been dispensing hearing aids since 1991, longer than some, but just a kid to others in the business. Lately it seems that common politeness has taken a back seat to expressing oneself with no filter; if you are demanding, you may believe you’ll get what you want more quickly. This attitude does not work […]
