Apple is looking into further de-buttonizing their laptops with this new patent. This one doesn’t have a lot of meat to it — as you can see, the illustration shows pretty much just replacing the battery text button with a less button-y touch-sensitive button. The patent mentions other uses, though, like media control buttons. I can’t seem to pull up the patent at the USPTO, but AppleInsider (who found it) has some more info. Could this tech make it to the iPad as well?
