BREAKING DOWN USPTO'S ANNUAL REPORT: The USPTO released it's annual report for 2005. As expected, patent filings are up (by 7.2% over 2004), and pendencies for applications are growing longer. Not surprisingly, the longest wait for examining patent applications lies in Tech Center 2400, which deals with computer architecture and software (average pendency = 43.5 months). Following close behind is Tech Center 2600, which deals with communications (42.3 months).

The Patent Prospector blog provides more details here.

Slight nitpick: Tech Center 2100 deals with computer hardware and software patents, not 2400. As far as I know, there is no TC 2400 (although it could be a secret Tech Center).
