    Default Apple sued over multitouch patent (irony inside)


    For any of you following the drama between Apple vs. Android, you'll recall a few months ago when Apple filed suit on HTC for infringing on numerous patents, including multi-touch technology.

    The theory is that Apple couldn't attack Google's Android OS directly without losing face so they went after the leading Android OS compatible phone manufacturer, HTC. Well it looks like someone else wants some of the action.

    Now, Taiwanese company, Elan Microelectronics has filed suit against Apple for using the very same feature Apple claims HTC is using without consent..

    Just goes to show how borked the patent system is..

    Yeah, I've always preferred My home built PC's. being able to upgrade, run different operating systems and maintain them myself without paying insane prices or being limited proprietary hardware..
    guess that makes me "uncool"
