    Well that's a shame. iControlPad should have made a patent first. Well since Apple got it they can't do anything now. They took to long to create it and ship it out. Apple. You made a patent now create something with it you good product monopoly company.

    I am not so sure about that. In college, I was told to keep my notes in ink in bound notebooks with the date.

    It is "intellectual property". And there are "intellectual property" lawyers.

    I read about this yesterday, thats sooo much bull... I honestly think that should be against the law, because the developers obviously had product plans and sketches and even working products before Apple ever patented it.
    And I bet you Apple won't even be REALEASING the product, they are just patenting so the original makers cant

    Nope it wouldn't
    It would be a GREAT accessory for people who play emulatoros on the iPad like GBA, N64 etc

    It totally sucks to have to use an external controller, when you could play with the device in your hands with physical buttons
