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.

Sue the clerk who accepted the patent

Cannot in this case Google and Samsung just sue UPSTO and/or the clerk who accepted the patent because obviously it should have been rejected, being too obvious? Or a class action, not against Google or Samsung, but against them? After all, they damaged Google & Samsung's sales, caused inconvenience to customers who already have the device, all by breaking the law? rules? of patent acceptance. Something definitely has to be done.
