Microsoft invented the iPod interface???!!

According to this article Apple screwed up and filed their patent a little too late. What a strange turn of events.

They patented it, they didn't invent it or if they did they didn't do anything with this patent.

The dumb thing about this article (and several others) is the characterization or headline of Microsoft being the "inventor". Nobody filed for a similar patent until the iPod was already on the market, i.e. long after it was "invented".
