They do: patent #7,311,526
Though I personally will likely never buy a Mac for philosophical
reasons, one must give credit where credit is due. If nothing else,
Macs are *sexy* machines. Kudos are definitely in order to the

the schlubs of us who won't buy Apple products.
The grass *is* greener over there. Sigh.
