Legal So, Apple has to pay boatloads of money to some patent troll over cover flow and Time Machine-related patents.

The patent is on an In-Box (like you have on your desk) where all new documents are placed on the bottom of the stack and you can see top document and part of several documents under it.

Please note that the documents are always sorted by time...

iTunes sorts by: Album Title, Artist, Song Title (never by added date).

Time Machine: sorts directory snap-shots by time. It doesn't present documents in a stack.

Isn't this patent a algorithm and describes an abstract process? If it is, then it shouldn't be patentable.
