Apple wins patent for its rotary dialing interface

You might remember the fake iPod rotary phone design that Steve Jobs joked about during his 2007 keynote. Well, it turns out the folks over at Apple have a sense of humor too as the fruity company has been granted a patent for such a design. In case you missed it, the design allows for devices such as the iPod classic to use its click wheel to control a rotary phone dial, similar to those old-fashioned phones that we used to use back in the day. It’s hard to imagine an iPhone/iPod using this design, but then again, who knows what the future holds?
