From software patents to computer implemented inventions is the US finally moving towards Europe?

In the IP maximizer blog Jackie Hutter is pointing towards evidence that software patents may be on the retreat in the US. The reason for this is US courts using the tools the Supreme Court gave them in Alice vs CLS earlier this year. Rejections for software or business method patents have risen from 24% to 78% since that decision.
Us may be moving towards the European further technical effect test and joining the land of sensible patents
