Smithsonian To Feature Steve Jobs' Patents In DC

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Smithsonian Institution is preparing an exhibit featuring Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' technology patents on the National Mall in conjunction with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The exhibit opening May 11, entitled "The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World," will be on view through July 13 at the Ripley Center near the Smithsonian Castle.

Smithsonian Secretary Wayne Clough says it will feature materials from the patent office and archival material from the Smithsonian's collections. It will include an Apple Macintosh computer, mouse and keyboard; a NeXT monitor, keyboard and mouse; an Apple iPod; and copies of documents.

Clough says this is the first in a series of exhibits planned with the patent office.

Jobs died last year of complications from pancreatic cancer.
