    At first I thought it was a pretty funny joke.

    Then I realized you were serious...

    Starting to wonder if Apple hasn't kidnapped some relatives of patent office employees! Can you imagine if this kind of crap happened in other markets? Ford patenting a mode of transportation that rides on for wheels. GM patents a round steering wheel. Dodge patents keys that are inserted into ignition. Whirlpool patents washers and dryers that are boxed shaped.... It would be a nightmare.

    Does this patent say that the exact design of the iPad and such can't be copied, or anything vaguely similar?

    Maybe Apple should patent the shape of a penis. After all, they sure are experts at being dicks.

    Apple would patent life and God, if they could. Then you'd have to pay them since you're alive. And if you live your life by God, you owe it to them... sorry asses.

    What's very interesting about this design is that it is truly innovative. I mean look at the rounded edges. Nobody will suffer from a blunt force injury with this design. That's innovation, also look at the rectangular shape. Tell me you've seen this somewhere else and I will tell you that you are lying.

    This is straight up Alien "technology"....humans don't have the capacity to think this far out of the box

    I wonder how Apple came with such a unique design?
