Apple is the new Rim / Blackberry. Eventually people will see that the phone doesn't really change and the things they keep patenting are pretty kafka-esc.

Not sure how they would get this granted. Patents are for hardware/software ideas that are not considered obvious. Putting pre-existing ideas into a smartphone doesn't make it new or not obvious. Really hoping the USPTO gets this one right.

"Apple has filed seven new patent applications..." Of f*cking course they have. That's not news anymore, it's standard practice for them. Apple is trolling and abusing the patent system and it's 67 degrees outside on a Tuesday.

Apple is patenting little s**t.. Just look at all the features on the Galaxy Note 2 Samsung can patent such as best faces, multi tasking screens, the S-pen, and all that other good s**t . Then Apple will be on hush mode... They patenting things we don't need or phones already have.
