RSS Patents from Apple

by Miguel de Icaza

Dave Winer points to a couple of Apple patents:

Apple is patenting our inventions, again. Oy. 

Jens Alfke, one of Apple's "inventors" stopped by to explain how there's no real generosity in the tech business. I can see where he might get that idea, working where he does.

There is an interesting discussion on Dave's site.

If this is the kind of thing that passes as a patentable invention nowadays, we must get ready for a few very dull years in the technology scene.
