Silent Vibrate on IPhone Coming Soon

Apple has file a patent to help your vibrate mode on your phone be truly silent.

Here's the problem:

When you're on the phone and your phone is in vibrate mode, and it rings, the person on the other end of the conversation can hear the vibrate happening.

Here's Apple's solution:

Dubbed "Vibration In Portable Devices," a patent filed today with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office details an Apple invention in which that annoying sound can be monitored and reduced.

We're pretty darn spoiled in western society when this is a problem that needs addressing.

That said, there are some pretty smart people working on the iPhone. This is definitely a cool patent, and iPhone users of their vibrate setting must really be excited.
