A patent on an obvious feature put in the most obvious place is not a patent that should be granted....

Now, if Apple had a special, non-obvious algorithm that performed searches, that might be something that could be patented, but just claiming a patent on the idea of allowing searches from the home screen (i.e the most convenient and most obvious place to put a search function)?

Are you really going to defend the legitimacy of that patent?
