    There are already smart phones that have a projector built into them (or as an attachement that fits onto them). There are already really small projectors that can be used with computers and phones. Is Apple going to use their patent to sue other companies and prevent them from continuing to make these devices that seem to be covered by Apple’s patent? Is this another way for Apple to sue their competition out of existence? Is Apple becoming nother Microsoft? I used to like Apple but their practices are becoming more monopolistic and IMO that is bad for consumers.

    Is this the same kind of vague patent that Apple is using to prevent Samsung from selling their tablet in Europe? It seems cool but rather vague.
