This isn't just Apple. Microsoft, Novell, Oracle all have patents similar in nature. They all patent silly things in an attempt to prevent competition. I can understand the patent of a particular design, but not the patent of a "concept" or "methodology".

Here is a Microsoft Patent;
The present invention is directed at a system and process for allowing a user to treat email addresses as objects. This allows easy manipulation of the email addresses, such as allowing them to be added to a contact list, copied to the computer’s clipboard, or double-clicked to open the related contact information for that email address sender. Email addresses are treated as objects in the message preview pane and full message windows of both incoming and outgoing email messages. [From United States Patent #6,895,426]
