Apple Patents: A Big Day for Apple when it comes to Patents

Apple Patents: Many people don’t pay attention to patents awarded to tech companies. However, you should now realize that this is a big deal. After all, Samsung and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) are currently locked up in legal battles all over the world with claims related to patents.

Apple Inc (AAPL)Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is actually the smart money’s second favorite publicly traded company but hedge funds have started dumping Apple in favor of a surprising financial stock (see which stock hedge funds are buying like crazy).

Earlier today, we brought you a patent related story entitled: Apple Inc. (AAPL) Pressure Sensitive Housing Patent

While this may have been one of the more “exciting” patents the Cupertino-based company was awarded today, there were many others that could be put to good use at some point in the future.

According to CNET, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was awarded 39 patents today. While some of the patents are sure to make their way into products in the future, others will likely sit around and accumulate dust for quite some time. That being said, this is a big part of the company’s business as they must make sure their technology is not stolen by competitors.

Here is a brief excerpt from the CNET piece:

“Perhaps the most important patent is one that relates to how a touch screen reacts to a person’s thumb and index finger during a pinch-to-zoom gesture. Sensors within the touch display change in size and shape based on the gestured detected by those fingers. If a thumb and forefinger start to move together, the sensory panels change around that. When they move apart, the sensors once again adapt. Other sensors around the screen, however, are not modified.”

If you want to learn more about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) patents, you don’t have to look any further than Patently Apple. Its story today – Apple Granted Patents Relating to the iPad’s Smart Cover and the Technical Aspects behind Pinch & Zoom – is one that you should definitely check out.
