It's no secret where this little bit of patented know-how ended up
. Apple's little port door for the MacBook Air is one of those design elements of legend that could one day go down next to MagSafe and the Click Wheel in the annals of Apple history -- even if it's near impossible to use without picking up the computer. So it's a little ironic that even the dreamer that drew up this patent couldn't imagine a mac without FireWire, Ethernet and a pair of USB ports. Oh Steve, you ask so much of us.
