Very nice, as usual.

A couple of notes:

1. Apple filed for their patent in Feb. of 2009, so it's not really a reaction to the legalization of jailbreaking.

2. Please throw the ads into iframes so that they can be reloaded periodically without refreshing the entire page. It's annoying when watching the video.

You know what's really stupid about these software patents?  They don't even have to prove they can do whatever sci-fi idea they patent.  And, even when the idea is easily accomplish-able, you can get sued for independent discovery and development of the same idea.

The jet engine was developed independently in two countries, as two separate implementations, at the same time in history.  So, who the hell can say that something as simple as an app that turns on your webcam is worthy of patent protection?

Keep making the vids - very entertaining for us geeks.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

@3vi1 - Yeah, that's what happens when I ramble without a script. :) I was just trying give some context.

Heh - You didn't outright say it was a reaction:  I was just pointing that out for anyone who might have inferred that from the context. :)
