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 »»»»

The five included a surgeon, who removed a kidney from the 17-year-old boy in April last year. The boy, identified only by his surname Wang, now suffers from renal deficiency, the government-run Xinhua News Agency quoted prosecutors in Chenzhou city, Hunan province as saying.

According to Chinese news agency Xinhua, one of the defendants received about 220,000 yuan, $US35,00 to arrange the transplant. He paid Wang 22,000 yuan and split the rest with the surgeon, the three other defendants and other medical staff. The report didn’t say who received or paid for the kidney. Read the full article »»»»

AUSTRALIA APPLE OFFERS IPAD REFUNDOur favourite tech behemoth Apple is once again in an übergadget pickle.  The beheomoth has been forced to offer a refund to people who bought its new iPAD, which it admits is not compatible with Australia’s Telstra 4G network. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission – ACCC – has taken legal action against Apple for what it claims are misleading statements over its new iPad.

Lawyers for the ACCC have accused Apple of breaching consumer law by promoting the device as being able to connect to high-speed 4G mobile networks using a sim card. The Australian Federal Court heard that Apple ignored warnings from the ACCC and was told the day before the iPad’s launch that it was misleading consumers. Read the full article »»»»

Posted: December 2nd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Technoid, Technology | 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.

Apple vs Samsung: Samsungs Henka MoveIn the war that has been Apple vs Samsung, the latter has won what could be the final slap-down. Samsung has won the right to sell its Galaxy 10.1 tablet in Australia after the Federal Court overturned a ban on the sale of the computer. Last month, the court slapped a temporary injunction on sales of the Galaxy 10.1 after rival Apple said the Galaxy range of tablets and smartphones was too similar to its iPad and iPhone. The tech behemoths have been waging a battle in 10 countries over smartphone and tablet patents since April. The Australian dispute centred on touch-screen technology. The court ruled the ban would have had the effect of killing off the Galaxy 10.1 tablet in Australia because of the short commercial life of new technologies.
