My first patent that got approved at USPTO

"Techniques for validating and sharing secrets " is my first patent title that got approved at USPTO. Link is here. It is filed in 2008 with co-author as Puthali. More than the title, I have few things to log here:
  • 1. It got approved on May 1, 2012 which is Labour day and holiday. Thats fine.
  • 2. Its under the name of Apple Inc. hmm.. looks like, during the acquisition of Novell, this patent went to them. Thats also fine.
  • 3. It got approved just the next day after I left Novell. My last day at Novell was April 30, 2012. Isn't it a big thing to happen?
  • 4. May 1, 2012 is the only day I was unemployed in my 6+ years career. I feel, this is a big thing.
  • Why so many coincidences around this patent? What ever, just thought of logging these so that I won't miss them.. :)
