Now, S3 Graphics Slaps Apple with Two Patent Infringement Charges

Soon to be subsidiary of HTC, currently held by VIA Technologies, S3 Graphics, fired off two more patent infringement charges against Apple Inc. Last week, VIA Technologies had sued Apple for alleged infringement of two of its CPU-related patents. These fresh charges by S3 Graphics, like those by VIA, seek sales ban on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, as well as Mac in the United States. The complaints were filed with the US ITC (United States International Trade Commission), and a district court in Delaware.

S3 Graphics patents that the company claims Apple infringed are: #5945997 "block- and band-oriented traversal in three-dimensional triangle rendering," and #5581279 "VGA controller circuitry". If S3 Graphics pulls it off, it could inflict significant damage on Apple's sales, as the company heads towards the winter shopping season.Sources: FOSS Patents, TechConnect Magazine

Firmware Update Fixes iPod Touch Screen Issues

After some users complained of the iPod Touch having issues with its LCD screen, it seems Apple has fixed the problem with the release of the 1.1.1 firmware. The iPod Touch was initially criticised for its screen being inferior to that of the iPhone despite the two using very similar hardware, however users are now reporting that their screens are much better, with issues such as the screen showing dark or negative images being resolved. It is speculated that the improvements are due to altered brightness and contrast settings – which would cast some doubt upon the original diagnosis that the LCD coating had been incorrectly applied. Although there seem to be mixed results, if you have an iPod Touch you should definitely give the new firmware a test and see if it offers any improvements for you. It is a 150MB download which should be available via iTunes.Source:

iPhone Screen Better Than the iPod Touch Screen

Since the iPhone and the new iPod touch seems to be very similar in design, most people assume that they also use the same screen. However, Gizmodo has reported that the iPod touch screen's deep black colors are grayish and appears to be shimmering at times. The shadows also seem to be washed out compared to the iPhone's screen.
