At issue in the case is whether an idea is too obvious to be patented.

Submission + - Top ten Apple rumors of all time

sosumi writes: CNET have taken a look back at thirty years of Apple rumors. The top ten list includes the "Secret OSX Build" and the "Apple To Buy Nintendo" speculation. The list seems to have it all. Other entries are the Apple iPhone ("just an elaborate hoax dreamed up by Steve Jobs to keep journalists busy") and Mac OS for IBM PCs ("so counter-productive and financially damaging for Apple that we doubt the company has ever seriously considered it"). From the article: "What do you get when you cross a notoriously tight-lipped computer company with rabidly fanatical users? A whole lot of gossip, speculation and hearsay, that's what. Thirty years of Apple Computer has seen the company rise, fall and rise again like a kind of technological Jesus Christ — there's been plenty to talk about."
