Apple Patent Reveals Scrollable Menus, Toolbars
Without question, Apple continues to forge ahead with making its operating systems more versatile and capable of accommodating the burgeoning number of options, tools, and demands that scores of applications present, despite the well-known present scarcity of screen space available to similarly accommodate so many choices. Our friends at Patently Apple, however, have uncovered an interesting find that speaks to how Apple may soon address this undeniable reality.
At Apple's "Back to Mac" event last month, Steve Jobs unveiled no shortage of cool features native to next summer's release of Apple newest operating system dubbed "Lion." But as the folks at Patently Apple point out, Jobs didn't dwell on the challenges incumbent on Mac users who will have to juggle the likes of a new Mac App Store, Launchpad, Full Screen Apps and Mission Control. As it turns out, Apple may have a little something up its sleeve with "scrollable menus and toolbars."
This possible new OS X Lion feature came to light late last week in a new European patent filing. The new feature is clearly identified as one being designed for both the desktop (OS X) and handheld devices (iOS) – which is what OS X Lion is all about: "The Power of OS X – The Magic of iPad." Apple's Full Screen App feature is about simplifying the desktop and their latest scrollable menus and toolbars concept extends upon that very thinking.

I'm surprised you just brought up the cat thing as if that wasn't apparent after 10.3, as far as 10.9 snow lion would imply a tuned version of lion, personally I've still got my hopes on ceiling cat
