THE PATENT CHEATERS AND INFRINGEMENT COMPANIES SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO PAY DEARLY
FOR VIOLATION OF APPLE'S PATENTS, OTHERWISE OUR PATENT LAWS WILL HAVE NO PURPOSE.

This is actually how USPTO lists inventors. I usually simplify it but ran with the way it's actually listed on the patent to save time this morning.

Just curious about your decision to punctuate this article the way you did. Where you list the inventors, the list enigmatically reverses the customary understanding of semicolons and commas, as:

"Forstall; Scott (Mountain View, CA), Christie; Greg (San Jose, CA), etc"

Standard usage would look like:

Forstall, Scott (Mountain View, CA); Christie, Greg (San Jose, CA); etc.

Not picking nits; just curious why you'd improvise an aspect of written communications that is widely understood when your message is generally helpful and clear.
