    :rofl: :rofl: Day by day this patent system is becoming more and more ridiculous. If this post wasn't in this section of the forum i would have thought that it was just a random sarcastic post and yes it's that ridiculous.

    Maybe they will have to do with Square Shape or maybe a parallelogram :p. Well parallelogram shaped HDDs would be fun to own :p. I am waiting for the time when apple will start patenting measurement of the arc of the rounded corners.

    Nothing. The patent applies only to portable display device.And not any portable device.

    Imagine if Henry Ford patented all four wheeler cars, today we would all have 3 wheelers or 5 wheelers etc by other manufacturers and only Ford cars would be 4 wheelers.

    Rotten apple does not fall far from the tree.

    Apple thinks it's a decisive strategy on the future tablet market.
    But, what if someone creates a tablet with square-shaped tablet with rounded corners.
    Will they sue them?

    Patents like this cripple innovation and what the current tablet/mobile makers are going to address this issue?

    This is actually the proof that the human race is gradually devolving back into primitive creatures.
