Given the "quality" of some of the teachers I've met over the years, this is a good idea.  But what irks me more than anything are the teachers who have an agenda and how they impose that upon our young people.  The students are young, ignorant and obviously very impressionable.  There should be a "Separation of Politics and School".

Major blow to Apple as one of its key patents is invalidated. The patent helped it win a 1 billion dollar judgement against Samsung !

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has dealt a blow to Apple in its legal battle with Samsung Electronics over smartphone patents, declaring that a patent that helped Apple win $1.05 billion in damages against Samsung in a jury trial should not have been granted.

Read the New York Times article !

Apple is expected to appeal the patent office’s ruling, so the patent has not been invalidated yet.

The patent, No. 7,844,915, is one of six that a jury in August found that Samsung had infringed. It covers usability software that distinguishes between single-touch and multitouch gestures on a smartphone or tablet screen.

The patent is widely known as the “pinch to zoom” patent, but the software is actually narrower in scope.

Apple’s legal documents refer to it as controlling a “scroll versus gesture” feature.

What do you think ?
