exactly! you dont only patent software that work like a horse's backside, it takes vision and innovation to come up with slick and fluid design that the end user will like.

The most interesting part of the story is Apple actually comes up idea of iPad first. The rest of the product, iPod Touch, iPhone are just part of the roadmap to the ultimate goal. If nothing comes out good from the allegation, this part of story tells us more of how Apple foresaw the consumer demands. What's the next goal that Apple is trying to achieve?

Patenting software has bad mixed results, just like patenting genes. Copyrights for software, and kill the Dole-Bayh act for other patent nonsense!!

To many trivial patents, too few screeners. Look and feel patents came with spreadsheet vendors and may end with phones..but they should end. Copyrights are better tool for designs.

It will be challenging decision for judiciary and very nice to observe for design community and innovative organization like Apple.

You hit the nail on the head. People can laugh at things like rounded corners being patentable, but the truth is that Apple's industrial designs are innovative and unique, and that is precisely what Apple was attempting to cover in some of these patents. How can you put into words the look and feel, the simplicity and elegence, without the words sounding silly?

Maybe that CAD software violates both Apple's rounded corner patent and Amazon's one-click patent :)

We all give Steve Jobs credits creating a phone he wants to use - revolutionizing the usage paradigm. But iPhone was not born out of Apple's own technologies. All the components were there for Apple to use which in fact means technologies were existed way before Apple thought about creating iPhone. Using lego blocks, our kids can create some shapes you never imagined. I give credits to this kid to create something no one ever imagined but also give credits to lego who enable this kid to be creative using their technology.

Stay tuned. Friday Apple's marketing VP Phil Schiller will describe how the iPhone came into being and he will be followed at some point by Scott Forstall who oversees iOS development. No doubt some wonderful Samsung execs and designers will make an appearance as well. Many shoes yet to fall. And I am open to questions I should explore while sitting there for you, so fire away!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
