Well the patent isn't as bad as it sounds, since it only refers to an specific display method... however it show us yet again the potential side effects of the so-called software patents

Then accept my humblest apologies; however you should make clearer who you are replying to, since the default is assuming you are doing so to the person above you.

Software patents... Well, I wish someone made a difference between application software and embedded software.

This would help everyone: The hardware developers will be on a safe side - I read a very convincing explanation from a Sennheiser (headphone manufacturer) official who stated that most of the performance of a phone nowadays is determined by its embedded chips - and that many cheap companies are trying to copy it. The consumers and software devs will be satisfied, too, because noone can patent any kind of application type (like DVD burning tools etc.).
