An Apple Lawsuit, This One Rather Ironic
"A company called Picsel Technologies has filed a lawsuit against Apple alleging that the iPhone and iPod touch infringe on a patent that involves the redrawing of a display to make the redrawing process seem more responsive."
The technology behind the iPhone/iPod Touch is still fairly new, comprised of many different technologies. So I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Apple is being sued by a company with claims to one of those pieces. Picsel claims that the rendering process used in the muti-touch display is violating their patent, specifically number 7,009,626. Ironic though, in light of the recent patent Apple was awarded for it's mutli-touch technology. Wasn't this aspect of it covered? I guess not, or rather, I guess we will see!
