Microsoft wins patent for handheld computer click

This is what Neil was referring to (in a comment about the stupid Network Associates patent) WASHINGTON, June 3 (Reuters) - Computer users with itchy trigger fingers take note: The next time you open a software program with two quick clicks on a handheld computer you may be engaging in a process patented by Microsoft Corp. (nasdaq: MSFT - news - people). The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on April 27 granted a patent for a "time based hardware button for application launch" in which a click of a button can start different programs if it is clicked once, twice or held down for several seconds... Source: Forbes.com After reading the patent it does not sound as glorified and horrible as Forbes/Every-Other-News-Site is making this out to be. Read it yourself. It is an innovative thing that I have never seen in the Palm or Pocket PC OS. Time will tell.
