Just because the US patent office wants to hand out patents like they are candy doesn't mean the rest of us should care.
None of these patents are worth worrying about until Apple invests the money in defending them in court. Wake me up when this matters.
I love this comment from someone else:
"The other option for Apple was to release a phone that would be faster and sexier than the Nexus One or the HTC Desire. But no, they have to go the bully way and keep their new-phones-only-once-in-an-year schedule"
so when does Apple overtake Microsoft as being the bad guys?
