Wireframes and Patents

Apple is notoriously secretive when it comes to, well, everything, but recently I read that they were seeking a patent for a smart-cover, dual screen tablet type device.  What I found interesting was the diagram and wire-frames they used to create the product.  I am not familiar with the process for applying for a patent, so I was interested to learn about the images that were used in presenting the patent.  Below are a few of the images – it looks A LOT like what I’m using to design workflows and wire-frames for the products I manage.   

What are your thoughts?  What tools are you using for wire-frames and workflows?
