For all the talk about how Apple patented
so many different aspects of the iPhone, it really hasn't stopped
a ton of iPhone-related patent infringement lawsuits against Apple. Bill Squier
writes in to let us know of the latest. Someone is suing Apple over a patent on the iPhone's caller ID feature
. Yes, apparently, the patent covers matching up the phone number of an incoming call with a local contact database to display who is calling. Of course, the patent also talks about a two-line LCD display and a separate receiver, which aren't exactly a part of the iPhone these days.
