There are way too many silly patents. Especially "software" patents. We need patent reform. Innovations cannot happen when every step you make is potentially a legal landmine.

What I am still confused about is that Apple did not invent the touch capacitative screen!
or any screen for that matter.
The screen inventors obviously enabled the tech to do pinch and zoom otherwise Apple S/W would not work on it!
It's a "driver" ! How can you patent a driver?

The whole thing is stupid, attempting to patent natural gestures etc, it's counter productive to stop other companies standardizing on the same controls.
A Mouse and Keyboard does not define a PC? Just as a touch screen does not define the tablet.
It does not hurt Apple, it makes Apple the standard!
Now Apple look stupid, again.

The mobile market is just too important. And the winner may as well take all. It is a high-stake game.
It's always evolving, it will never be winner takes all. Nokia thought they had it all, look how it turned it for them.
