Newegg just took out one of the biggest patent trolls on the web. A troll so pervasive, it threatened to put out a mafioso lawsuit-insurance tax on basically every online retailer on the internet. Here's how it happened, as told in a great writeup over at Ars Technica.
There have been allegations that someone's been supplying online retailer Newegg with fake Intel Core i7 processors and then proceeding to threaten anyone who reports on the issue. Here's what Newegg has to say:
Tag clouds provide a quick visual summary of the most popular subjects on a particular website. Newegg's "Shopping EggXperience" forum gives customers a place to talk about their problems with the site. They make an excellent couple. UPDATE
We've had a sneak peak at NewEgg's Black Friday deals and now we've got more on the offers along with a listing of the pre-Black Friday specials (which you can get right now).

Sure, the new MacBook's about to be revealed and that's super exciting, but some of us around here are actually starting to feel the effects of the recession and could sure use a good deal right now. For you belt-tighteners, here's a cheap and quick upgrade from Newegg. The online retailer's offering a Corsair 4GB…
Yesterday, I showed you how Dell irresponsibly ships tiny flash drives in gigantic boxes, giving the finger to the environment. Well, Dell isn't the only offender when it comes to wasteful shipping habits. Above, reader Paul shows us how WalMart.com decided to ship a flash drive to him. And NewEgg? It's even worse.
While we think you should wait to buy a standalone Blu-ray player until the 2.0 ("full profile") spec hits to get interactivity and picture-in-picture, there's no reason to wait for a PC drive, except for the price to drop. Newegg has a 12X Blu-ray drive from Lite-on for a pretty cheapo $130. Just remember you need a…
