Apple Files For Patents Related to Thunderbolt and iSight

Don Reisinger for CNET writes:

The USPTO today published a host of patent applications Apple has filed related to technologies it has been working on. Chief among them is a technology that would allow for better networking in Thunderbolt ports. [...] Apple also filed for a patent on an improvement to iSight Webcam technology, as well as three applications related to Flash memory.

At a time when the purpose of software patents is being called into question, Apple has filed for numerous new patents that will help protect its technologies from being copied by competitors.
