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.

Thom, if I remember correctly, you own an iPad (or maybe it was an iPhone, I can't remember).

I sold my iPad 2 a earlier this year, and pre-ordered a Nexus 7 a few days ago. I do still have an iPhone 3GS, but I loaned it to my best friend months ago, and she still uses it - without a SIM, so basically it's an iPod Touch to her. I don't want or need it back, she can keep it.
