I'm reminded of Ted Hoff, who told my father that Intel never considered patenting the microprocessor because it seemed so obvious. "Computer on 200 chips" becomes "computer on 20 chips", then "computer on 2 chips" and finally "computer on a single chip". Nothing novel, really. I believe Dr. Hoff has been supporting himself for the last two decades as an expert witness in patent disputes.
