Apple Patent

So Apple just got a patent for the scroll bar. Wahoo. So I have an idea for a potential workaround, that could be infuriating to Apple, which is a plus. So instead of a disappearing scroll bar, Android should just make their scroll bar fade when it isn't in use. You could make it partially transparent, so it wouldn't take away any functionality. This has the added bonus giving Apple a bit of a slap in the face, as they could just make it as transparent as they possibly could without it being invisible. Bam! What does everyone think?
