We generally try to avoid Apple’s patent applications.  They have little to do with what end up as final products and they are about as exciting as Apple’s lawsuits.  That isn’t to say there aren’t some interesting ones.

This one certainly falls into this category.  Apple’s recent application for biometric security on iPhones had the following image (Via Engadget):

Yep, that’s a jailbroken iPhone with the Installer.app and the SMBPrefs jailbroken app drawn by the patent artist.  Hilarious! Apple’s lawyers Kramer, Levin Naftalis & Frankel have broken the law – in accordance with Apple’s interpretation of the DMCA as it relates to Jailbreaking – and could be sued by themselves on behalf of Apple.
