They already do, and have done for years.
This 'only Apple patents things' meme is just wrong.
Google have a patent on having a website logo that changes each day.
Amazon have a patent on having a button to buy something without any further confirmation steps.
Microsoft have a patent for display a wait icon while a webpage loads.
Cadbury have a patent on the use of a particular shade of purple in packaging for chocolate.
