*** Apple Assigned Patent for Device, Method, and Graphical User Interface for Zooming Out on a Touch-screen Display ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 30 - Apple, Cupertino, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,365,090) developed by Bas Ording, San Francisco, for a "device, method, and graphical user interface for zooming out on a touch-screen display." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In accordance with some embodiments, a computer-implemented method for use in conjunction with a device with a touch screen display is disclosed. In the method, an electronic document is displayed at a first magnification. A gesture is detected on or near the touch screen display corresponding to a command to zoom out by a user-specified amount. In response to detecting the gesture, the electronic document is displayed at a magnification less than the first magnification. If a document length or a document width is entirely displayed while the gesture is still detected on or near the touch screen display, the electronic document is displayed at a magnification wherein areas beyond opposite edges of the electronic document are displayed. Upon detecting termination of the gesture, the electronic document is displayed at a magnification wherein the areas beyond opposite edges of the electronic document are no longer displayed."
