Look! I just patented a rectangle with round corners!
I've always wanted a patent! Had I known that all I had to do was patent a SHAPE, I would have done it years ago. If you haven't already heard, Apple just received a patent for a portable display device with rounded corners. That means any smart phone, tablet pc or e-reader that is rectangular with rounded corners just violated patent law. And could be SUED by Apple. I just read a funny and spot on commentary about the new Apple patent over at XDA Developers that you need to check out.
