Legal Patent trolls are evil. However, we're used to patent trolls attacking big companies like Microsoft, Google, and Apple, who themselves keep the broken patent system intact - so it's kind of what goes around comes around; schadenfreude if you will. However, what if a patent troll carefully threatens to sue a number of smal-time iOS developers, knowing full well that these small developers cannot fight back due to the iOS developer agreement? What kind of low-point have we hit then?

Since keyboard technology is in dire need of new advances, it's smart for Apple to patent such developments. However, ultimately it seems to me that it would make much more sense to ultimately incorporate keyboards into monitors; this would be a convenient space-saver.
