Posted: September 21st, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Technoid Computer News | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on TECHNOID! Apples Superneat New Bezel Gesture Patent

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 »»»»


Motorola Wins Apple Wireless Patent Fight in Germany

Posted: December 9th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Motorola Wins Apple Wireless Patent Fight in Germany

Technoid Apple vs Motorola German Patent RulingA German court has found Apple in violation of a Motorola Mobility patent, ruling that Apple’s iPhone and 3G model iPads infringe on cellular communications, patents owned by Motorola Mobility that relate to General Packet Radio Service – GPRS – data packet transfer technology. The patent-in-suit is European Patent 1010336 [B1] on a “method for performing a countdown function during a mobile-originated transfer for a packet radio system”. This patent is one of the two patents at issue in the action in which a default judgment was entered against Apple Inc. It was declared essential to the GPRS standard. It’s the European equivalent of U.S. Patent No. 6,359,898, a patent against which Apple raised a FRAND defense in the United States and which is being asserted in an action that was just transferred from the Western District of Wisconsin to the Northern District of Illinois. Motorola said the ruling validated its “efforts to enforce its patents against Apple’s infringement”  M★C READ MORE


CANON: Touchscreen DSLR on it's way

Posted: October 18th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on CANON: Touchscreen DSLR on it's way

A recently-published Canon patent application, which was filed in April 2011, elaborates on the DSLR touchscreen features in a similar application published in 2009.  The application focuses on the operation of the touchscreen in conjunction with the viewfinder’s eye proximity sensor (which shuts off the display when the camera is raised to the eye).The main point of the patent application is to emphasize the need for a non-touchscreen portion of the display that is directly adjacent to the eye proximity sensor.  As you can see in the pic, the top portion of the display is intended to only provide information, while the bottom portion of the display allows you to make adjustments by either tapping on certain numbers or icons – or by making swipes to make range-based adjustments.

UPDATED: APPLE, SAMSUNG SUMO

Posted: September 30th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on UPDATED: APPLE, SAMSUNG SUMO

UPDATED:   Samsung – a midst litigation with Apple Inc –  has announced an agreement to cross-license their patent portfolios with that old behemoth that is Microsoft!While this deal outwardly seems to focus on Google and Android, things in techland aren’t ever that simple. What’s most enthralling about this deal is Microsoft’s ability to side with Samsung in challenging Apples iPad and iPhone patents – as mentioned below – Microsoft may have a claim to the rights of Tablet Computing Technology?

Federal Court Justice Annabelle Bennett is likely to grant a short injunction on sales of the Samsung Tab in Australia. Apple’s iPad patents were Issued by the US patents office, an office renowned for incoherent, inconsistent and absurdly vague patent grants. Apple is more than likely to lose this case, most PCs look the same, as do Notebooks, Netbooks, Tabs, TVs and Smartphones.  The tablet computer was niether invented by Apple nor it’s technologies developed by the Cupertino giant. A square box, with a touch screen and black boarders, that someone else invented shouldn’t be a patent-able architecture. The judge urged both sides to consider starting their patent-infringement trial as soon as possible. The dispute is part of a global fight between the two companies, the world’s two largest makers of tablet computers, which began in April in the U.S. after Cupertino, California- based Apple sued Samsung claiming Galaxy products “slavishly” imitated the designs and technologies used in iPads and iPhones. Samsung struck back with lawsuits in South Korea, Japan, Germany and Australia. If Apple does lose this case we already have a NEW pitch for Samsungs Galaxy 10.1 Tab “The Tablet that Apple Did Not Want You To See” If Apple WINS this court case, expect an Amazon Kindle to be the closest NON -Apple branded Tablet on the market!
