I just read an article on flipboard that quotes the patent saying specifically that the device will have two screens that project separate images to each eye. Therefore making this patent non-relevant to Google Glass as it only has one screen. The article is from The Verge and is titled "Intellectual Properly: Apple's patent on Google's Project Glass that wasn't". "Intellectual Properly is a series where we seek to set the record straight on the day's hottest patent, copyright and related intellectual peoperty issues" (Quoted form The Verge artical by Matt Macari, July 5, 2012)
Sorry... Democrat who loves Google here.
Of course all politics aside, both are businesses trying to turn a profit - that's about all that is the same in my opinion
Before Apple started pulling all of these shenanigans, I had NO IDEA that U.S. patent law was so wantonly deficient and nonsensical.
And Apple is just making themselves look desperate and pathetic at this point.
