 Yes, along with rectangle, rounded corners.  Jon Ive hard at work.  Some deranged souls here also believe that Apple "MADE" PowerPC. 
 because there was no smartphones with 8TB of memory or storage? and won't be for some foreseeable time?  
 there is no set punishment for SEP infringement. In fact, contrary to Apple's claims, there is nothing preventing/discouraging SEP holders from seeking injunctive relief.

Well, this is an interesting garbage revisionism:   "While popular legend says that Apple simply got its Macintosh ideas from the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center after seeing the group's advanced technology in 1979, this isn't the case."   The author of this write up seems to forget that it was Jeff Raskin who not only brainstormed the project from the very beginning, but also arranged the two visits to PARC.  Jobs was on the second visit -- Raskin brought him...
