iPhone Bezel PatentWhether you’re using an Apple iOS device – or any other maker – most smart-devicess work the same way, you typically use the touchscreen for input tasks such as typing, tapping and gesturing.

Until now, touch screens have worked just fine for most things we typically do on our devices, however, it can often be tricky to see everything that’s on screen when you’re holding your finger over a portion of the display.

Apple has an idea to work around this handicap…

A recently published patent application from the clever boffins at Apple covers an idea to make the bezels in iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices touch sensitive as well.

The bezel is the portion of the device that frames the screen. The application describes a scenario where this slim – and getting slimmer – area would have touch sensors just like the screen, so that you’d be able to scroll and tap without ever needing to cover the display :: Read the full article »»»»

iPads at the Ready: US Airline Travellers Allowed to Use Mobile Devices for Entire FlightUS airline passengers will soon be able to use their portable electronic devices – PEDs – aboard flights on most US based carriers, throughout the entirety of their air journey, by the end of this year.

The retarded rule that’s barred the use of electronic devices during taxi, take-off and landing has been in place for more than half a century. The new, more relaxed guidelines are the result of a review by the US Federal Aviation Authority.

The review – take note CASA! less than a year from review to implementation – was setup last year and included input from flight crew, passengers, aviation experts and mobile device makers. The review found – shock horror – that commercial airplanes are able to tolerate radio interference from portable electronic device.

The change doesn’t apply to phones, the FAA said it hadn’t considered changing the rules for voice calls because they fall under the jurisdiction of another authority and also differ from other devices because of signal strength :: Read the full article »»»»

GOOGLEThat behemoth that is Google has been fined $US22.5 million for violating the privacy of millions of Apple Safari browser users. Last October Google signed an agreement that included a pledge not to mislead consumers about privacy practices, oops.

In fining the behemoth the FTC – US Federal Trade Commission – said that Google had broken an agreement made with the commission in October 2011, Google had agreed not to place tracking cookies on or deliver targeted ads to Apple Safari users, but then went ahead and did so. The fine is the biggest imposed by the FTC against a company for violating a previous agreement with the Commission.

In a statemnet the FTC said that Google has agreed to pay the record $22.5 million civil penalty to settle Federal Trade Commission charges.

“The record setting penalty in this matter sends a clear message to all companies under an FTC privacy order,” said Jon Leibowitz, Chairman of the FTC. “No matter how big or small, all companies must abide by FTC orders against them and keep their privacy promises to consumers, or they will end up paying many times what it would have cost to comply in the first place.”  :: Read the full article »»»»

Oops? Samsung Galaxy Table Banned Again!?

Posted: December 2nd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Oops? Samsung Galaxy Table Banned Again!?

Apple Gets Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Banned, AGAIN!UPDATE!! The behemoth that is Apple has won another temporary injunction to stop rival Samsung from selling its Galaxy tablet computer in Australia. On Wednesday – just 2 days ago – we reported that the Federal Court had lifted a previous injunction, meaning Samsung could start selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 at 4pm (AEDT) today. But Apple later launched an appeal to the High Court. The injunction means Samsung cannot sell the tablet computer until the case goes before the court on December 9. Apple says the South Korean company’s Google Android based Galaxy range of tablets and smartphones is too similar to its iPad and iPhone. The companies have been waging a battle in 10 countries over smartphone and tablet patents since April.
