Default Apple's new patent?

Did Apple manage to patent the rectangle?

I do like some of their products, but some of their practices are ludicrous.....I wonder if somebody got paid off?

They do look really nice....but I don't have the $$ for any more new toys. Good thing the barter system is still alive and well!

Check out the chart: http://monoadc.blog64.fc2.com/blog-entry-99.html And testing is coming to the same conclusion everywhere.

Oh yeah, I've seen it. The headphone-out will be good enough, even with sensitive IEM's, that most people won't bother with amping, especially given the connector-adapter thing you'd need to amp.

I never used the LO on the 4th-gen Touch that you now have...I always liked how it sounded just fine with the HO. I could do the same with the Classic if only it had a separate volume control....lol. But it's just as well...I use that as my "desktop" setup with the E11 because the onboard sound of my computer isn't any good.

Don't forget about the recently released iBulb.

At only $200 for a pack of three, they're a real steal!

Too funny! What comes next, an Apple fan for $500(as if the Dyson one isn't already absurdly priced)? How about a $1,000 Apple coffee maker?

LMAO. I just saw the video and I thought I was watching a video form The Onion at first. I rate this as the stupidest patent ever.

My second toe is bigger than my fat thumb toe, should I patent that to prevent copiers?

I shall call it "MyToe!"

The ability to flip people off with your feet...Priceless!
