Get with the times and stop bitching about change. No one likes change.

Do you remember a long time ago when people used to complain about a mouse-driven user interface? How did that turn out? How long did it take you to adapt to Windows 95's start menu after being used to use the Program Manager? When did you stop changing your Windows 7 taskbar settings to make it look more like in Windows XP?

Just... get used to it. You'll have to adapt to it eventually, so you might as well enjoy the process.

That's not the point. The point is, if Apple gets this stuff patented, they could sue other companies for patent infringement because their way (ie. the way everyone else is doing induction charging right) is too similar to Apple's designs. And they could win because the courts are too stupid to understand modern technology.

Alright, let's say it's change, not progress. Why do you think that it's Microsoft that's forcing you to adapt to a new interface? Seeing as how popular iPads are nowadays, do you think it's a dumb move for Microsoft to create an operating system with a revised interface that works great on both desktops/laptops and tablets?

This process can check if this value is zero, and if it is, it does something child-like. -- Forbes Burkowski, CS 454, University of Washington
