Patents on Google

Google appears to be allowing full-text search on US patents.

On it's site about the search Google indicates it has indexed patents from the 1790s and on. My intial searches indicates it is searching all the text except for any text written into the images.

The patents can be searched here.

Why do I always learn about these things late at night when I should be sleeping?
