A trio of Apple filings seek to patent mobile-application "systems and methods" for travel and online shopping and to move us three steps closer to a Google-free world.

Taken together, the three filings point not only to the browserless future that Apple is seeking for its iOS devices, but also if granted by the much-maligned US Patent and Trademark Office to an application ecosystem in which software patents are sweepingly broad and the protection of "prior art" is enfeebled.

Lengthy article. Pics, too!

They generally seem to be working towards a fileless, folderless and user interface free operating system. It kind of makes me wonder how long they will continue to produce 'personal computers' in the sense that we currently know them, in favour of 'closed' consumer iDevices. It seems to me that the times between updates of their desktop and laptop hardware seems to be getting longer and longer each time.
