Just like how a rock star would hang all of his or her vinyl records on the wall, Qualcomm has a dedicated “Patent Wall” at its San Diego headquarters to show off 1,395 of its patent files. But that's just a fraction of the 13,000-something patents owned by the company, of course. Sadly, we weren't allowed to take photos of Paul Jacobs' pool of gold coins behind that wall.
