I would actualy sugest that people take some time reading that article.. *shiver* thats some scary stuff

no springloaded folders, no trash, no iTunes clone, no config option for "Close, Expand, Hide" buttons, and even no 'fruit in the left top corner' of a menu bar.. Hell even a cron w/ gui.

I donno if i should laugh or cry now

Seems Apple have even patented the trash icon now :)


I talked with alex l. on irc yesterday about those, and it appears that most of those are design patents. Basically they cover apple's design of the trash can, window border buttons and itunes etc. Why they need a patent as oppose to just copyright perplexes me.
