Apple patents an old Japanese location interest dating app

Which goes to show why the current patent system is stupid. The Japanese have had this system in gadgets for years now – you fill in your interestes in the gadget and when you come close to someone with similar interests, the thing rings. You look around and – hey, there’s someone else ringing!

Unbelievably crass that Apple is now patenting this in the US. Can’t they think up their own products?
