VIA Seeks US Ban of iPhone, iPad Over Patent Infringements

Taiwan-based low-power computing technology company VIA sought a sales ban of Apple's iPhone and iPad, for what it alleges to be patent infringements of its microprocessor intellectual property. VIA sought a jury trial along with a sales ban on Apple products containing the inventions in the U.S., according to a complaint filed yesterday in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware.

In its complaint VIA says “The products at issue generally concern microprocessors included in a variety of electronic products such as certain smartphones, tablet computers, portable media players and other computing devices.” This specifically impinges upon Apple's cash-cow products, the iPhone and iPad, and it isn't coming at a good time because Apple, according to market analyst Gartner Inc., will dominate tablet sales this holiday season. The case is Via Technologies v. Apple Inc. (AAPL), U.S. District Court, District of Delaware (Wilmington).Source: Bloomberg

Had Apple shares for over 2 years, released them at $406us. Was a fantastic run.

They should not have tried to shaft Samsung. No-one shafts Samsung and gets away with it.
Except maybe, They Shaft!

Goodbye Apple, i always hated your products looks and power (except thunderbolt).
