    It isn't a scroll bar - it's just a page location identifier that disappears.

    Again, not an innovative feature.

    Secondly, I don't see this doing much for Apple. This is not a feature that people buy phones for not to mention it would be easy to work around. Google could just shrink it rather than make it disappear.

    "Sir, I'm really in need of a device that has a disappearing scroll bar. If you had one, I'd buy millions!"

    Comparing this to the universal search patent is ridiculous. Not even in the same ball park in regards to significance. Granted, I didn't buy a phone for universal search either.
