Misinformative Information

The telegraph,
The telephone,
The radio,
The television,
The internet.

They all deliver "information" to the end user.
Ergo, according to a recent "insightful" analysis they belong to the nonpatentable "Information Age".

um no. the paper says the information delivered by those devices is not patentable. The devices are just fine to patent, since they are "machines". I like the ideas the author presented, actually.
