Default Apple Awarded Patent for Doubleshot Molded Device


"Apple today was successfully granted a patent for an "electronic device formed with doubleshot injection molding."... The patent suggests that Apple has at least explored the idea of pursuing what Microsoft ultimately chose as the defining aspect of its music player's style."

It seems that Apple has filed for, and been awarded, a patent on a double-shot effect similar to the process Microsoft has used on the Zune players.  Apple was granted the patent today, March 1st.  The patent can be found here.  What is most interesting about this little turn of events, is that Apple apparently filed for this patent in August 2005, a year before the Zune's release.  Now that Apple has been awarded this patent, I'm interested to see if there will be any legal play between Apple and Microsoft over Zune's use of this technique.
