Apple Patents Speaking iPod





Xavier
Apple is quite fond of filing for patents, especially those that surround its widely used iPods. But who can blame Apple for doing so? Any creative or unique idea could very well turn out to be a big revenue generator for Apple, considering that iPod and music sales make up a huge portion of Apple's income.

While the new patent doesn't cover a touch-screen iPod video, it does give light into a new navigation system that Apple is working on for future iPods. Because more and more users are using iPods in situations where they are unable to look at the screen, such as while driving, Apple has made it so it is possible to navigate the iPod menu system without taking your eyes off the road. While scrolling through the menus, the iPod will speak back what item is being selected so that users will be able to listen to what's going on.

You make it sound like apple is self-fish.

If you made one of the best and popular music devise wouldn't you patent it.

You guys don't seem to know the real enemy here. That enemy is Microsoft. They steal what they want then they patent the stolen what ever it is. It is no wonder why Apple wants to patent everything. Their worried about Microsoft stealing their idea and Microsoft has been stealing from Apple for years.
