Clearly, in the Jobs era, Apple lawyers are far better trained at attacking bloggers and DIY publishers than they are at protecting the company's intellectual property assets.


Oh ouch... THAT was a direct hit... :( :rolleyes:

Oh ouch... THAT was a direct hit... :( :rolleyes:Sadly accurate. The patent app is pathetic. Having filed a few myself, knowing the work we had to put into it, I think it's telling that the abstract contains an obvious error... I can see how typos might make it in lower, but, geez, the abstract?!?

Pathetic.
