“Some weeks there just isn’t a wining patent declared by a rocking TKO,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“This week is such a case but that doesn’t mean that that there weren’t a series of solid inventions, because there were,” Purcher reports. “A series of patent applications came to light today relating to improvements in the works for iDevice haptics, Apple’s iSight camera, flash memory and accessibility for the hearing impaired.”

Purcher reports, “More times than not it’s the simple utility patents like these that end up being implemented by Apple.”
