The ridiculousness of this makes me lost for words...
Apple is being ridiculous for filing a patent every other day and the patent office is beyond ridiculous for allowing them to do it.
I still say we should patent screens and interfaces.... eh... I'm not going into the long speech... total garbage
DROID RAZR MAXXIMIZED!!!! PREPARE TO BE VANQUISHED!!!
FEEL THE POWER OF DROID!!!
You have to remember just because the patent office gives them a patent it by no means is a court proven patent, which means that for them to use this patent against others the courts would have to rule that this is even a worthy patent. As we've seen time and time again Windows v Lindows... when microsoft tried to sue lindows for their name, the courts said no way because windows is too common of a name. The same thing could happen here and most likely would.
Resistance is futile.

This is utterly ridiculous, one way or another Apple is going to dig their own grave. They will either get big Microsoft coming after them (Windows phone and now Windows 8 all use multi-touch) or they will catch an antitrust lawsuit from the US government

Dear Paul McCartney,
Please please us by reopening your lawsuit with the conniving company known as Apple for stealing their company name from you and the other Beatles and insist they change it to something else immediately! Assle comes to mind, but you may find that distasteful as it's spelling is still too close to the fine name of your record company.

You're going to see a LOT of stupid patents in the coming months as the USPTO is changing from a "first to invent" system to a "first to file". Many companies are scrambling to get as many patents as they can under the current laws.
