The US Patent and Trademark Office officially published a whopping 31 newly granted patents for Apple Inc. today. Earlier we covered a Key Swipe Gestures Patent for Virtual Keyboards, another covering a Telephonic MacBook with a Rotatable Display along with an Industrial Design Patent for Apple's Upper West Side NY Apple Store that credited Steve Jobs as one of the designers. In our last report of the day, we cover an eclectic mix of interesting patent wins ranging from a first NFC patent win to one covering location technologies including Infrared beacons. Additionally we cover conductive paints and foils used in the iPhone and another design win for Steve Jobs on the Magic Mouse. All in all it was a huge patent day for Apple and fun for Macites who love to hear the sound of Android-Heads exploding at the mere mention of Apple gaining yet more "e-v-i-l" patents – Ha!
