Other areas, well, it's not going to push in to the mobile phone space, or the tablet space.
Not until Apple's patents expire anyway...
Shame that Apple are relying on dodgy patents instead of their previous innovation to maintain sales....it's a sign they are worried so I don't think they have much new stuff in the pipeline - just old stuff rehashed. Hopefully Google and Nokia will start stomping around some of their patents and show how ludicrous the whole system is.
Alas, it's how corporations work. Shareholders demand profit at almost any cost. If a corporation wasn't using its patent portfolio to its full advantage, the board's ability would be under question.
And you've got to remember that the vast majority of the public (and therefore potential customers) don't know about these machinations or don't care.
