Apple has agreed to pay Creative Technology, maker of the Zen MP3 player, $100 million to settle the patent lawsuits filed against Apple’s iPod menu navigation scheme. Steve Jobs noted that, Creative is very fortunate to have been granted this early patent. Yes, it is apparently possibly to patent the way someone can navigate through menus. The settlement will reportedly resolve all differences between the two companies and restore order to the universe.
