Apple Files Patent For 3D Widgets On The OS Dashboard

Posted May 7, 2010

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has filed for a patent that implies that they are interested in the possibility of placing 3D widgets on the OS dashboard. It appears that Apple is interested in placing these 3D widgets on the Mac operating system given that the Dock appears at the bottom of the patent drawing. Another reason why this patent is interesting is because Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) recently bought a company that specializes in 3D desktops called BumpTop. [Patently Apple]
