    Jailbreakers had every updated feature on iOS (post 1.0), including the app store. Everything Apple adds anymore is just polish, at best, to something that is already available on jailbreak.
    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    In the news next week: Apple filing suit against Bioware for having used radial menus in their games for nearly a decade.

    On a more serious note, I'm assuming the patent deals more with the details, such as making more common items more prominent and therefore more easy to select. Then again, this concept isn't new either.

    with the sun and icons moving about when you swipe up from the bottom right corner?

    Default This already exists fro the mac, its been around for years
    This already exists for the mac, its been around for years. It's called Sapiens and works exactly as detailed except that it launches apps not commands. Look it up, you will be surprised how similar they are

    It's kinda sad you know? Apple probably wouldnt have half the stuff they have in iOS if they didn't steal the ideas from jailbreaking. (pogo plank, categories "folders")

    How is this radical? Computer games have had this for years. Jobs himself said years ago that they are masters of stealing ideas.

    I think it's funny because there are a thousand other things that use this. One of them is an app in the App Store that you know they reviewed. Seriously though, SketchBook MobileX has a menu system exactly like this other than the submenus and gestures.

    And we will always be 4 steps ahead of them.
    I think they get most of there patents from us anyway.
    Why do I have to fix everything I get?
    Life sucks
