Oh, great....

The US Patent Office continues its reign of terror with idiot patents.

This time they award Microsoft with patent 7,415,666 which effectively is PAGEUP and PAGEDOWN.

I'm not sure if this is a joke on Microsoft's part since it was applied for in March of 2005, but the USPTO awarded it even though I'm pretty sure there's a bit of prior art on this one.

Neat, eh?
