"Explicitly"? Add another word to the list of words that you don't understand.
No. I meant, and I said, that you were making a semantic point that had no real relevance to the argument being made, not that there wasn't any truth whatsoever in what you were saying. If you think otherwise you are imagining I've written something I haven't. Learn to read real words, not imaginary ones.
If someone interjects the special theory of relativity into a discussion about whether cats or dogs are cuter I'd also say they were making a nonsense argument. Not because the special theory of relativity is untrue, but because it's a stupid, irrelevant point to make given the context. That's an absurd example of course, but I genuinely don't think the distinction between implementation and idea was the spirit of the point that you quoted (i.e. you were just being a smart ass), nor do I think it is particularly relevant to this specific example anyway because, as I have challenged you to clarify, I don't think there is much scope for implementations of "speaker behind grill" that are differentiated enough to deserve a patent beyond the obvious ones implied by the idea of such a thing (i.e. I think you're full of crap when you claim there are between dozens and a hundred).
This would be like the flashing light that used to exist on Blackberries, though I think it was red. That would be cool if Apple could take the idea and turn it into the first proper implementation.
Also Charles Ives, the composer.
I appreciate the minimalistic nature of the patent. It's one reason I only buy the iPhones with the black face, I don't like seeing the proximity sensor & camera on those with the white face.
I don't know how anyone can live with themselves who buy a white iPhone. The monstrosity of having to see that white facade sullied by two slight dots which you don't notice when you're actually using the phone is too much to bear; in fact, it makes me come out in a rash just to think of it.
Hey, here's a thought. You buy what you like and I'll buy what I like. That ok? I'm pretty sure the point of my post was my own reasoning, no reason for snarky comments.
I gave Apple feedback about the eye contact/lens behind display thing, though I'm sure they've been thinking about it already. It's a good point.
So you want to be allowed to reason, but you don't want others to reason different.
