Seriously Apple? Seriously?

Apparently we have hit the bottom of the barrel in patents. Like I said, “Seriously Apple?”

You're kidding, right?

What next? A patent for the return key?

    Whats wrong with this patent? The iPhone was the first to use an onscreen gesture to unlock a touch screen device and it came out 15 months before Android was released. While it seems ubiquitous today, I would argue that in 2007 this was ground breaking. Heck, even the “enter” key was a novel idea at some point.

    Just my $0.02 🙂

      Well, it seemed silly when I read it 🙂 Perhaps the familiarity of time with said locking mechanism has colored the truth about whether it was a novel invention or not.
