The Other Side of Apple

An interesting patent find over at Aetherworld: it’s plans from Apple concerning not the front face touch screen used on the upcoming iPhone and likely future models of iPod-ery, but rather, an inventive touch screen on the back of the unit, thus allowing the interface to remain normal sized, not having to overcompensate because your chubby little fingers are always hanging around the screen. As noted, it’s just a patent at the moment and probably won’t be used in any upcoming products. Devices using it, however, will be released as soon as you’ve just forked over the thousands of dollars for the version right before it (the stupid lame one that only stupid lame-os have).
