The Examiner goes on to say that the airflow of Nakumura could be reversed to flow from the extension device to the computer. Ans. 10, citing In re Einstein, 46 F.2d 373 (CCPA 1931)...

In re Einstein stands for the proposition that "a mere reversal of the essential working parts of a previously patented device" does not constitute invention.  In re Einstein, 26 F.2d 374 (emphasis added).  however, the Examiner's proposed reversal is not a "mere reversal of essential working parts" but rather a reversal of an entire air flow entailing parts outside of the cited air flow path.
