Patent Workaround Suggestions (add yours)
Instead of trolling on about why Apple sucks... How about we discuss actual workarounds to the infamous search patent?
Just an idea, but coudnt google do something like this:
1. Register each app/contact/file with a central registry.
2. Have the search bar only reverence items in the registry.
3. Every so often, have a bot clean up the registry to remove any unwanted data.
It isnt the most elegant solution, but it would bypass the main assertation of the patent (searching multiple sources), and it would be relatively transparent to the user experience.
Any other ideas?
