    Wasn't this floating around a while ago too? It sounds interesting, but not anything I'd pay extra for.

    yep this is very old news. nothing panned out, you have to remember Apple has patents on a lot of stuff that they've never used-- just that they've been interested in.

    Plus, Apple's aesthetic is clear and defined, and I don't think they're liable to go colorful-bulbous-toy anytime soon... anything with a color-changing case would probably look as cheap and tacky as one of those christmas trees that has fiber optic branches :rolleyes:

    If you've seen an iBook's sleep light, or the light on the G4 cube, I think that's what this patent covers...

    i always liked the one that had weird branches, they would spread apart and there was this face, and it would sing. creepy little SOB tree...
