There's a new post on the Web of Language:

Apple patents page-turning. What's next, the letter "i"?


Apple has just patented page turning. On Nov. 13, 2012, the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Apple patent no. D670,713s<http://www.uspto.gov/web/patents/patog/week46/OG/html/1384-2/USD0670713-20121113.html> for a “display screen or portion thereof with animated graphical user interface.” In plain English, that’s a page turner®.
