just found this while snooping around: http://patimg2.uspto.gov/.piw?docid...%26s1=apple.ASNM.%26OS=AN/apple%26RS=AN/apple It's a new patent assigned to Apple for some kind of locking mechinism. To me, it looks like it could be a locking cover for a opening latch on a G5 case. Some kind of cover that prevents the door from being opened. Or maybe it's a lock to keep latops closed. Hmmmm... Here's another: http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-...d=ft00&s1=apple.ASNM.&OS=AN/apple&RS=AN/apple This looks like a new text-to-speech method. Something along the lines of speakable items. Zarvox V2.0 anyone? Here's another: http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-...d=ft00&s1=apple.ASNM.&OS=AN/apple&RS=AN/apple This one has to do with translucent overlapping windows for OSX. New Apple trademarks: Apple also has a new trademark out (not that new...Jan 17th) for a program called "AppleScript Studio" "PowerGrade" (April 9) PROVIDING USE OF ONLINE NON-DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE FOR USE IN SCHOOL MANAGEMENT, NAMELY, MAINTAINING ATTENDANCE, GRADES AND OTHER STUDENT AND SCHOOL RECORDS. That's about all I could find. There's a few other new patents (all new patents have been granted this month) but they're not very interesting.
