Not content with patenting the marvellous invention of a paper bag, Apple decided that ordinary pizza boxes simply weren't up to the job in its white and shiny world. Behold the circular, Apple-approved pizza box to end all pizza boxes. Published in 2012 – with one box apparently signed as a mark of respect on the death of the Apple founder, Steve Jobs – the patent says that the new and improved circular pizza receptacle's invention is credited to Apple's head of food services, Francesco Longoni. It was intended for use in the company's Caffè Macs and the new Apple Park cafe. The patent describes a "container that is structurally stable enough for containing an item in a variety of applications and is also environmentally friendly".
