Idea has been around for years and in a few movies as well. But if Apple is the first to come out with something to market, they will patent the hell out of it and claim they invented it.

I did acknowledge that it's been around for a while. And thanks for the drone like Apple claim they invented it response.

Then less than 24 hours later, I see this.
I think 2015 is a bit soon to expect something like that. While there are already prototype flexible displays, you're missing the flexible hardware, batteries, cameras, microphones, speakers, etc.

if the US awarded them the patent then they obviously proved the no prior use part of the process.

And Nokia beat them to it...
My assumption, Apple will release flexible paper like interfaces before 2015. I believe this is the next step. I understand that this technology exists on very small prototype devices, but I mean they will create and market it to the masses. I'm talking about a Kindle/iPad size device that is flexible like paper. Perhaps not fold-able, but close.

I'm guessing they will dabble in the TV market for a bit and then maybe look into the car interface industry. That's a big area that everybody has failed at so far.
