Apple patent filings

The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office today published two of Apple's patent applications titled "Method and apparatus for organizing information in a computer system" and "Securing and controlling access to digital data." The former relates to user interfaces for computer systems and to methods as well as apparatuses for implementing user interfaces for organizing information in a computer system. The latter relates to the iPod's lock screen security feature. The European Trademark Office today also published Apple's latest trademark, titled "Core Animation" under application number 005669585. "Core Animation" is Apple's fourth published trademark related to Mac OS X Leopard this week, as filings surfaced yesterday on Xray as well as Spaces and Final Touch.

    Dear Steve "Santa" Jobbs,

    I'd like a new Mac Pro with Mac OS X Leopard, Dual 3Ghz Quad Core Intel CPUs, 6TB storage, 32GB of RAM, an iPhone, and go ahead and throw in a partridge in a pear tree for yourself.
