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.

I believe the OP meant patent 5525982, which was granted on Dec 15, 2009.

And while Mr. Bush was technically president for 5.6125941% of 2009 (sorry, just an approximation - I realize that's I'm "factually wrong" again ;-), no historian will credit a decision on that date to Mr. Bush's administration.

I take it you, like so many of his fans, believe Mr. Obama's failings should all be attributed to the dastardly Mr. Bush?
