They must be kidding! On which planet do these Patent Office guys live?

The only "clicking" that MS should be able to patent is the 3-fingerered salute Ctrl-Alt-Del => reboot AGAIN!!!

What is this world coming to?

I think I will patent the wiping of ones arse with their left hand while holding the newspaper with their right. :roll: :lol: :nuts:

Oh and, I use microsoft windows and I single click.

Do you think God stays in Heaven because she is afraid of what she sees down here?

Owner and Operator of a 2000 Jeep Wrangler. A few mods here and there... but just you wait and see what I have in store for her...

Sorry 360, but I've already used that "combination act" at least once last month (on the 15th I think, can post photos to prove).
Sorry. :wink:

I'm actually rushing in a patent right now to own the act of:

1. Pushing one's chair back and jumping to one's feet, followed by
1. Throwing a brick through the monitor, and yelling ..
3. "MY GOD THIS SOFTWARE IS SO ********-UP!!!"

ps: Just read this in today's press (yep, I read newspapers!).
Microsoft has "reworked" Homer's "The Iliad" into an SMS-text version as their contribution to enlightening today's youth, complete with lines such as ...

"Paris went 2 fight Menelaus.
But he was wiv fright. Hector told im 2 b a man. Shame on him!
Helen went 2 watch from da walls."
:nuts: :nuts:
