Microsoft PatentsMicrosoft is celebrating its ten thousandth patent. And so am I, sort of–I just browsed through some of its 9,999 earlier ones, and found ten that were intriguing for one reason or another, with evocative drawings.  (Did you know the company once patented a floppy-shaped PDA you could stick in a disk drive? I sure didn’t.)

I’ve assembled the images into an annotated slideshow, as is my wont. You can view it here.
