DaveyJJ writes: Once again, it seems Apple is about to take IP to a whole new level. Apple has been awarded a patent that pretty much wraps up what we know as "location services" as their own. In overview, the patent says that the system involved will display information that is specific to the location the device is in. Broad and powerful. Lots more on the news site and the USPTO site. I guess now we wait and see who Apple is going to use this against?
