- Forum: Future Apple Hardware
Reading through this quickly I tend to agree with you - it does seem to be more an innovative utilisation of an existing technology rather than a new invention per se. However, I'm sure a lot of patent applications are defensive in nature. If Apple are granted a patent for it - fine. But if not they will know it is not patentable, thus potentially saving them yet another trip up the road to that wretched court in East Texas.
