Doesn't Dolphin browser use this kind of approach? As we'll as some other apps? I mean are they in risk now?

lol, apple gets people banned with drawings on bar napkins.. lol.
yea, i can see MS using this to bully pretty much every OS there is... since they all use something very similar for the keyboard. Hopefully the devil is in the details and its a patent for a very specific way of using the keyboard and not some omnipresent generic term like it seems.

I have the ACER aspire 4820T that comes with bluetooth inbuilt. I have the Microsoft bluetooth mouse 5000. I have always been using it with no problems. Suddenly it stopped working.
As usual, I thought I can just re-installing it by using the pairing function under the bluetooth panel "Add a device". Best part is the wizard just keeps going and never stops. My mouse is already in pairing mode.
Next check under devices/printers and believe it or not, it appears as indicated. However under the bluetooth control panel (Show Bluetooth devices), no mouse. In the devices & printers panel, the mouse shows up.
I cannot use the mouse or do a manual installation.
I have also tried to upgrade the drivers for the bluetooth and still not working. Tried the mouse with another computer and no problem. Can anybody advise how to do a reset of the bluetooth module or settings?
Short of a complete reinstallation of win 7 (which I hope to avoid just for one mouse), I have run out of ideas.
Hope somebody can render any insight as to how to resolve the issue.
Durden, did you contact Acer support about this? I tried to but they just blame the mouse and software? Any luck on your side?
Thanks for reading.
