Of course, this raises the question as to _why_ Apple felt they needed to
close up these loose ends... Or maybe it was in a tickler file, and just got
pulled by a worker, and finished, without anybody really paying attention to
it? Or, maybe they have plans of moving it to OS X in a bigger way, and
wanted to have this patent on file before they file their next, all, of
course, to keep the competition from horning in.

My personal opinion re: a new device is that if ever Apple does something,
it will be a cell phone, or based on one.
