Why do you people act like Apple is the only company that patents stuff? Put yourself in their shoes. Apple gets sued by some patent troll every other week. And so does MS, Google, Samsung, and every other major company out there. The patent trolls cost these companies millions upon millions of dollars. So it makes perfect sense for Apple and the others to beat the trolls to the punch and get their ideas patented first. That's the reason they do it. And the only reason you here about Apple's patents on tech sites is because Apple = page hits.
