I've read the 1st patent claim, and how you can honestly call that a patent, I don't know. It's an "aesthetically pleasing technique", in other words, how something looks.
I've worked in companies where people have thought up little techniques and no-one's patented them. And you know why? Because no-one thinks stuff like that is patent-worthy.
Sick of the patent system. It works for drugs, but for the computer industry, it's badly broken now.
