Apple News Byte: Apple 'pinch-to-zoom' Patent on Shaky Ground

by Wochit 1:18 mins

According to a new report, Apple's embattled "pinch-to-zoom" patent has been tossed out by federal patent authorities. Samsung Electronics filed a petition in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, requesting that all alleged infringement against Apple's pinch-to-zoom patent be tossed out. Apple's plans to release a low-cost iPhone got confirmation from a new report by China Labor Watch. The unlikely source of new product info was an undercover investigation into Pegatron, to shed light on working conditions at the Apple supplier and revealed the new iPhone will have a plastic casing. In an almost too predictable pattern, Apple's brand new supplier, Pegatron, is committing some very familiar labor violations because a plant that overworks and underpays is cheaper for Apple. A new report from non-profit and notable Apple-watcher China Labor Rights alleges that the iPad Mini and iPhone producer withholds worker pay, provides poor living conditions, and commits various other environmental and safety violations, reports The Wall Street Journal.
