Outdated patents?

The story about Amazon getting a patent for UI design implemented in Kindle is a common story about how patents get out-dated by the time they are officially patented. However, it is not appropriate to rule out the patents. As our company policy restricts me from reviewing other patents, I do not know this or any such specific patents, however, having dealt with patents, I knwo that the patens are written as much broad and generic sense as possible. Thus though a specific product may not use the patented technology, any usage of the technology in any competing or non-comnpeting products can be subjected to patent violation.
