    Engadget.com has this interesting story about Apple filing a US Patent today. The item in the patent is described as...

    "A cubical computer housing assembly comprises first and second ends and four sides, which define an interior compartment for housing the various computer components."

    Hmm...

    This is residual bureaucratic silliness from the old Cube.
