    So does Paice have a claim against Honda, Ford or any of the other company's in the hybrid game?

    I looked over some of the pat. they have. And I find them to be very general over all and extremely wordy. Almost to the point of common knowledge even considering the years filed.

    I smell a Russian Rat.

    I have yet to listen to any of the podcasts. Little kids during the day make it hard to hear and after work I don't have enough time after catching up on the forums. One of these days I will get to it.
