TechDeville: Apple has been granted a patent for iOS multitasking interface that was first introduced in iPad, and then as part of iOS 4
you have got to be shitting me.
really? they got a patent for this. guess Nokia is gonna get sued next.
take a Nokia 7650 (or any previous Nokia with symbian software) hold the menu button. voila. you get what apple just patented. so much for that.
this article says Apple filed for this in 2010, Nokia been doing it since the 2000s. really. which retard with no prior knowledge of anything tech related approves such junk. seriously. the USA patent office is run by monkeys.
I've been saying that for years. This country has become corrupt on so many levels. None of them care. They do it knowing they will get away with it. The world desperately needs a reset.
Another win for Apple
Another sheep for de-devolution.
I'v said it before and i'll say it again. It's consumers in the end that lose out. Pattents were originally meant to promote innovation, now it's used as a toll bridge, c**kblock, steamroller ect.
Apple seem to just be able to patent what they fancy just to block or sue competitors. Oh I was designing rounded edged icons and 3D cut out icons for computers and adverts back in 1985 so I don't quite see how Apple can get a patent for something they blatantly copied.
