‘Steve Jobs’ Patent Invalidated by U.S Patent Office
 
The U.S Patent and Trademark Office declared one of Apple’s strategic patents that was at the centre of Apple v. Samsung invalid.

The patent ruled invalid by the USPTO was the ‘Steve Jobs patent’ — the master patent that covered multi touch and scrolling — which arguably defines the iOS experience. Listed by the USPTO as U.S. Patent No. 7,479,949 with Jobs, Steven, et. al as the inventor, the patent is titled “Touch screen device, method, and graphical user interface for determining commands by applying heuristics.”

Ahh yes, Apple's dirty tricks hopefully coming back to haunt them.

I'd love to see this entire company fail due to their slimy innovation through litigation practices.

good now on to rounded corners, though it seems pretty sad this could be appealed and possibly fought in the supreme court.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

The game being a broken outdated patent system, and publicly traded companies that scream for more and more profits.

The "game" isn't an entity that can make decisions. The "player" however is capable of making decisions, and should be held accountable for them. If you choose the play the game, expect to be railed for being a shitty player lol.
