Samsung already has these, oh oh I get it they wanna sue Samsung on something other than smart phone design so they get a patent on something Samsung already uses but with a different name!
Our engineers have Dell laptops with a stylus using this technology. Funny that it isn't licensed from Apple. Oh, perhaps that's because APPLE DIDN'T INVENT IT, nor did Harley and Simon.
Is it usual for patents to be approved when the patent applicant hasn't actually produced anything more than a description of how a competitor's actual product, that is physically already in existence, operates an its use scenarios?
Yet another thing apple is copying, or getting on board with since they were wrong again... I believe even their god Mr. Jobs said
Anyone remember that story from a year or two ago about south Koreans using sausages as stylus's because of the extreme cold? Therefore the pork industry should sue Apple for patent infringement, a warm sausage works just like a "Active" stylus.
I think Wacom might have something to say about this...
This is going to be interesting to hear how this stylus issue is going to turn out. In other words, who is going to sue who. Lol
