Dodging a bullet

It’s not uncommon to hear of Apple chasing someone for infringing on their intellectual property, but the shoe’s on the other foot at the moment with Picsel Technologies claiming that Apple, and others, have used their patented method of accelerated screen updating in over 250 million handset worldwide. It’s good to know that Apple don’t have a stranglehold on innovation. Although it doesn’t seem as though IBM is doing a bad job – according to Engadget, they’ve apparently just been granted a patent for bionic body armour which is intended to bestow the wearer the power to dodge bullets. Hmmm ... was it only last week that Microsoft investors were complaining about its R&D?
