Apple wins two patents

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office today published Apple's newly granted patent for a 'Hybrid low power computer mouse' as well as a 'Method and system for automatically resizing and repositioning windows in response to changes in display.' The former describes an ultra low power computer mouse with an optical tracking engine and an inertial tracking engine that cooperate to provide velocity data to a computing device. The latter invention relates to the automatic repositioning and/or resizing of utility windows in response to actions that affect the view or content of the windows on a display.
