Legal Remember when Steve Jobs launched the iPhone, and held it up in the air, proudly proclaiming "Boy, have we patented it", followed by a massive applause of the adoring audience? It may seem like this wasn't just an empty claim, either. During the earnings conference call yesterday, the company hinted at possible legal action against Palm were the Pre to infringe on iPhone patents.

By the way, I would have thought that if you've read Norman's book The Psychology of Everyday Things you would have realized the obviousness of the obviousness paradox. That was practically the whole point of Norman's book: that what you classify as the only obvious and sensible solution is regardless implemented in a suboptimal way everywhere you go. Hence the solution is apparently not so obvious after all. Hence you can't objectively judge the level of obviousness....
