Apple Patents the Wedge Design

Geez if they are actually successful with filing patents as broad as this, it makes me wonder what other crap they have tried to patent but have been denied.

I bet denied and patents aren't two words that apple hears from the Patent office.
 
Everyone always lames Apple, but why does no one ever blame the US patent office or the Courts for standing behind Apple? If I had to guess, the Judge's making these pro-Apple decisions (like Judge Koh) and the folks at the US patent office are behind the times and dont really get technology as much as we do here.

Ps- I guess Sony can expect a lawsuit for their patent infringing S Tablet

My guess would be that judges like Koh have stock in Apple, or receive free ipads for their decisions.:p

Folks. Get your cheese now because in under a yr, we won't get any more cheese wedges.

Luckily walmart has cheese on sale this week! Lol
 
I say we all sue apple for attempting to monopolize the tech market with all these patent lawsuits.
 
It wasn't long ago that everyone perceived apple as the good guys and Microsoft as the bad guys. Now apple is just another HUGE corporation out to stick it to any and everybody.
 
I'm really in shock that the U.S. Patent Office issued this type of a patent, it's a complete joke.

Someone needs to sue/challenge the Patent Office and stop this at the source.

There needs to be a serious investigation of the PTO, and some judges. This has to stop...

Nope, not good enough.
You're still infringing on at least one other Apple patent.
It looks too much like an iPad.
 
Yes this is just the latest example of how sloppy the US patent system is and how exploitable it is for companies like Apple who have no qualms about throwing patents into a consortium for trolls to use.

People should check out this website, it's a petition to the US congress to reform the patent system. I first saw it on Google+ and have been sharing it with friends. You should sign it and share it as well. Then maybe congress will change the system so companies like Apple can't abuse it anymore.

Here's the petition:

Someone should patent the design of placing your logo behind the laptop screen. Or someone should make an effort to find the company that first did it then patent it.

I wonder what Carrabba's and Olive Garden will do now that they won't soon be able to grate fresh cheese slices. the whole Food Network will collapse like Oprah's channel!!!

They would sue you as they have a patent on suing.

It wasn't long ago that everyone perceived apple as the good guys and Microsoft as the bad guys. Now apple is just another HUGE corporation out to stick it to any and everybody.
I don't recal Microsoft suing everybody and their mother. I don't recall MS suing a bakery in europe because it had a logo that looked like a square..

Apparently so, considering they are now apparently going to be releasing a smaller 7"+ sized iPad, even after Steve Jobs said "people would need sandpaper to sand down their fingertips to 1/4 their original size" to use one effectively. Perhaps the sandpaper will be standard issue? (thinks about comment...wishes to revise) No, wait...it's Apple we're talking about here. The Sandpaper will be a premium accessory. :blink:


Apple's late CEO made a rare appearance on an October 2010 earnings conference call to launch a tirade against the 7-inch tablet Samsung Electronics Inc. was set to launch as the first major challenger to the iPad.


"The reason we wouldn't make a 7-inch tablet isn't because we don't want to hit a price point, it's because we don't think you can make a great tablet with a 7-inch screen," Jobs said. "The 7-inch tablets are tweeners, too big to compete with a smartphone and too small to compete with an iPad."


He said the resolution of the display could be increased to make up for the smaller size, but that would be "meaningless, unless your tablet also includes sandpaper, so that the user can sand down their fingers to around one quarter of the present size."


"There are clear limits of how close you can physically place elements on a touch screen before users cannot reliably tap, flick or pinch them. This is one of the key reasons we think the 10-inch (25-centimeter) screen size is the minimum size required to create great tablet apps," he said.


Jobs failed to mention Apple's success developing apps that use taps, flicks and pinches on the iPhone, with its 3.5-inch (8.9-centimeter)screen.

After reading about halfway through I thought, "how the hell does he expect people to use an iPhone properly, or any smartphone, since anything smaller than an iPad is too small to use." Then I got to your last sentence and I just smiled and said "yep." Apple are choking on themselves. Hard.

Hell, my Bionc is vaguely wedge shaped. As is my desk telephone. As is my PC keyboard. As is my Windows laptop. As is my TV remote. The list goes on.

I don't know how Apple was able to patent something so abstract, this is like patenting the concept of a circle.

Great idea!!!! Let's patent the circle!!! Come on DF!!!! Let's do it!!!! Then... the rectangle!!! And the oval!!!!! And then the words, if, the, as, am, app, application, processor, processes, screen, tap, swipe, press, touch, signal, drop, insane, lawsuit, retarded, and frivolous...feel free to add lmao

DROID RAZR MAXXIMIZED!!!! PREPARE TO BE VANQUISHED!!!
