I put this here as a mac peripheral. Is any one else becoming worried that Apple are becoming obsessive about patenting absolutely everything and anything to do with all perceivable means of computing device and computer interaction. It's become more apparent with the trending from Apple to deliver to market underspec products for there price, relying on the brand to persuade people there is value in over paying for over priced hardware and Apple have put profit before product. I just wonder with Mr Jobs going on medical leave has Apple become a danger to itself. Will supplied broken as standard become the new mantra for a brand that may have lost it's way. It's probably more relevant to hear from members whom have been Mac users for at least five years to hear if they have seen significant changes in the philosophy of the company and brand and wether they see themselves remaining devout customers.
