Apple's Glowy Computer Patent

Apple Glowing Computer Patent Illustration

Now, I’m a big fan of Apple products, but filing a patent application (2008) for a computer with a coloured bulb inside it might be pushing your luck. Also, with design supremo¬†Jonathan Ive on their team, it seems a little strange that the patent illustrations seem to have been drawn by a five year old.

  1. I am definitely feeling the glow with all those wavey lines emenating off the patent. Perhaps someone at Apple let their child do their homework for them? A little desperate, anyway…
