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.

That's exactly my point, Apple paid for it. Even when it had no money, it found a way to compensate Xerox for it.

And Xerox "stole" the idea for the mouse anyways, people. It was created by Douglas Engelbart at the Stanford Research Institute years before Xerox PARC.

Anyways, thanks for making my point.
