That is a pretty big deal coming out of Germany. I have some of those issues myself.

Essentially they got a patent on a specific type of page transition, which seems pretty silly. It's like going into PowerPoint and trying to patent one of those stupid swirly slide transitions.

8. Apple grantd design patent Nov 17, 2012, 09:33 HeadWound
 
from the article:
"To be clear, this is a design patent and doesn't actually cover the computational underpinnings of flipping pages virtually. Unlike a utility patent, which would include various claims for things the patent does and does not cover, this type of patent is designed to protect the look and feel of the software in the event of any lawsuits. That's an important difference given any potential legal fight in which this patent could be brought out."

I just invented an automatic gesture whenever the words "Apple" and "patent" are mentioned in the same sentence.

Samsung also applied for its own such page turning patent in Europe last October, and Google was granted a design patent near the end of 2010 for page turning on a "communications terminal."

But I guess Google and Samsung beat them to it?

It's Turtles All The Way Down....

But really, what did you expect, the US Patent office denying a patent by Apple, the great US company that makes stuff that is 100% not made in the US? What absurdity..... ;p
