    Patent for "Magic"

    Yes, but on the iPhone you have "magic" that makes it work ...

    Seriously, if this is something that gets a patent, the patent office and defenders have lost all their moral standing.

    So let me see if I understand how this works, take something that already is common place, do it on the iPhone and get a patent? So does that mean if I wipe my a** with an iPhone, I can get a patent on that now as well? Hell, I'm pretty sure their isn't any publicly available prior-art to me wiping my a** so I might even have a better patent application ...
