    I dunno Pressure at least Motorola looks like they have some real claims. Apple has sunk so low as to patent shapes and features used on pcs for decades

    Apple really does has great features and applications which need to be patented. Much of the dispute around software patents seems to stem from the fact that the US patent office has not been very intelligent in determining whether methods are obvious to skilled programmers, and they have granted an immense number of patents for extraordinarily obvious things.
