    I think this was posted yesterday.

    yes, its crazy to award a patent on displaying a list. Seriously, what did school kids do when they had to submit an outline list for a report? give Apple a royalty first?

    Good luck enforcing any of these patents... the patent office is so out of touch that its not funny. Apple was late in the game when it comes to mobile devices, so there's no way that the "charge by plugging in" patent will hold up.

    This is laughable, Google should patent the process of manufacturing and then patenting too.... someone should patent frivolous lawsuits and then sue the crap out of apple... this is just getting stupid.

    We should all start a petition like we did against verizon, just start it against the patent office.. call your senator and tell them you want action taken...

    Not that these steps will do anything...

    There's already a petition out for reform of the patent system. Has a number of signatures already.

    If they could, they'd patent the patent system and then everyone would have to pay them first just to patent something
