  Burglar proofing your home - buy longer screws
Posted by: Diamond - 25-02-2020, 07:14 PM - Forum: Non Invention Related Posts - Replies (2)

Last week the house next door plus the house next to them were both robbed in the same night

After doing some research it turns out many homes are fitted with very short screws in their door-frames. But simply installing longer screws it can make doors a lot harder to kick down.


What other ideas do people have to make a home more secure for not much effort, time or money?

  Top 3 Rookie IP Mistakes
Posted by: QuickPatents - 05-11-2019, 05:48 PM - Forum: Intellectual Property related Questions - No Replies

In my 20+ years of experience of being an inventor and helping other inventors, here's what I've noticed are the top 3 mistakes people make:

1. Spending lots of your own money on invention submission companies who promise to do all of the work for you.  No one company can do it all, and if they want to charge you $10,000 to create some virtual prototypes and submit a couple dozen letters to potential manufacturers, don't count on seeing that money ever again.  You need to do the work... you're the one most motivated.  So do everything that you can yourself.

2. Thinking your idea is really great.  Get over yourself... it will save you money!  You need to quickly and honestly arrive at the point where you know if this is a "go" project or not.  To do that you will need feedback from many people, not just your family and friends and one patent practitioner!  Be open to the idea that this first invention sucks, and you should quickly learn that so you can get to the invention idea that is genuinely good!  It's easy to take advantage of people's enthusiasm for their own idea... be careful!

3. Publicly disclosing the idea before it's protected.  Since 2013 the United States has joined most of the rest of the world in granting patent rights to the person who files the patent first ("first-to-file") instead of the person who invented the product first.  That means you have to file at least a provisional patent quickly, since you want to be first in line at the Patent & Trademark Office (PTO).  You no longer get anything for being second in line.  Even if you file your own provisional patent application (PPA), that's better than nothing.  I say file your own PPA, but then don't rely on it... take it to a patent practitioner to see if it does the job it's supposed to do (fully disclose how to make and use your invention).  

I'm happy to help you with #2 above, or even #3 if you don't want to write your own PPA.  Book a free half-hour chat with me at www.quickpatents.com/cal.

  Intel attacks Fortress
Posted by: invention-forum-admin - 01-11-2019, 11:59 AM - Forum: Invention & Innovation Related News - No Replies

Intel launched proceedings against Fortress (owned by investment company SoftBank Group) , seeking a declaration that Fortress’ business is anti-competitive and therefore unlawful. The outcome of Intel’s antitrust action could have significant consequences for the tech industry, especially seeing as Fortress’ parent company, SoftBank, owns ARM, one of Intel’s biggest competitors.

  upto 97% of UK Drivers are on the wrong tyre today
Posted by: Diamond - 28-10-2019, 10:05 AM - Forum: Non Invention Related Posts - Replies (1)

So it's at around 0 Celsius today and most people don't know that Summer tyres lose their grip below 7C.
There really should be more awareness of the difference between summer & winter tyres.
And perhaps a change in the law - because the UK weather is such that most of the UK would benefit from a tyre designed to operate in UK weather all year around.
