Do not call yourself a Patent Searcher if You Cannot Solve this

We here at GreyB focus on improving our skill set with daily activities. We have a culture of 10 min activity where one person in the company conducts one activity every day. These activities are designed in such a way that they not just refresh you from your work but also add something new into you every day.

Here is one example of activity conducted by Gaurav Dhiman (member of our research team) today. Here is his complete email:

    Distraction, Solution, Unit, Half (you forgot to take the one out of the halfs “????-life”), Accuracy.

    Yes I agree, if that exercise takes someone more than 5 minutes, they should not be getting 1200 dollars to perform a patent search. Fun though!
