In a new patent filing from Samsung we learn that they're trying to patent a shadow effect for turning an eBook page. Androiders love to complain and rant about what they perceive to be Apple's frivolous patent filings. I say to them, take a long look in the Samsung mirror and say, what? Samsung is trying to patent the creation of a shadow for turning an eBook page? Is this really worthy of a patent?
This is exactly what Android Heads love to do. Instead of looking at the totality of a patent filing being presented, they simply choose to blindly attack a single facet of a new Apple patent and go haywire on every website they can with their usually repetitive rants.
So, with the shoe on the other foot, how does it feel? Imagine, wasting everyone's time with a patent about adding a shadow to an ebook page turning. This is an invention worthy of a patent?
