The patent laws usually require that, in order for an invention to be patentable, it must

be of patentable subject matter, i.e., a kind of subject-matter that is eligible for patent protection,
be novel (i.e. at least some aspect of it must be new),
be non-obvious (in United States patent law) or involve an inventive step (in European patent law); and
be useful (in U.S. patent law) or be susceptible of industrial application (in European patent law[1]).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patentability


How in the world does this count as any of those things? Literally, this does not count as patentable by any definition.

As soon as someone proves that the patent office is taking money under the table we can get all these non-patents thrown out.

That means that 99% of the things in my house are infringing on Apple's patent, including the laptop I'm using right now. There's like 5 patent infringements on it alone since this thing is basically a bunch of rectangular shapes with rounded corners.

I don't know what Apple hope to accomplish by doing this or what they hope to gain. They must think that by wiping out the competition in the US they'll get more money.
WRONG. All they are doing is digging their own graves. Many people are realizing how crappy and inferior their products are compared to Android devices. It's sad though because most of the kids in my school have iPhones rolleyes.gif The only Apple device I have is a 4th gen iPod Touch I got for Christmas last year. Apple will come and go. I don't think they'll last very long. They'll just continue to steal ideas from Android and other manufactures and patent them.

Sooner or later iPhones are gonna have NFC chips in them. They're gonna claim that they invented it when the Samsung Galaxy SII had it first.
