Summary:
Nine years after receiving the original patent filing, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has finally awarded Apple Inc, and inventor Steven P. Jobs the patent for the OS X Dock. The original patent was filed on December 20, 1999 and aside from Apple Inc, three inventors were listed on the file, Bas Ording, Lindsay J. Donald, and of course current Apple CEO Steven P. Jobs. The patent focuses primarily on the dock’s ability to magnify icons, and present information to the user when sweeping across the dock.
