Samsung claiming to patent a wheel and a clock? Sorry I don't get their point.

Read it again. They're talking about using a clickwheel with numbers around the periphery as a replacement for the standard cell phone numeric keypad. Apparently Samsung had done that (news to me) and Steve thought they screwed up by not having the numbers 3, 6 and 9 match their positions on a clock.

Wait, what? If it is previously done outside the US it is not considered prior art?

Interesting. So Apple copied the clickwheel from Samsung?
