Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

Thom, if I remember correctly, you own an iPad (or maybe it was an iPhone, I can't remember). Perhaps it is time for you and others to simply not buy anything from Apple, or Microsoft. For that matter, try to avoid buying anything made in the USA. This crap isn't going to change as long as consumers so eagerly give their money to the American corporate overlords who are ruining the whole world's legal system.
