Arizona company Advanced Voice Recognition Systems (AVRS), specializing in software for speech recognition, has filed a lawsuit against Apple.

AVRS обвиняет Apple в нарушении патента

According to the plaintiff, he owns patent No. 7558730 issued by the US patent office, broken voice assistant Apple Siri. This patent relates to speech recognition. Allegedly, Apple was aware of the existence of the patent in 2013 and broke it no less than 77 times.

More specifically, the specified number corresponds to the family of patents. The original patent collection was received in 2001 and it is valid at this point, in 2009.

It is difficult to say which commercial products still use the development of, and used, if at all. The company AVRS calls it owned patents “based business model.” What the outcome of the dispute is still unknown, but Apple is no stranger to accusations of patent infringement.

Qualcomm said that the court Fuzhou (China) granted the request of two preliminary injunctions against four Chinese subsidiaries of Apple. They were instructed to immediately stop the infringement of two Qualcomm patents by an unlicensed import, sale and offer to sell in China the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 and iPhone Plus X. Previously, these two patents were valid Chinese patent office SIPO.

“We highly value our relationship with customers, rarely turning to the courts for help, but we also firmly believe in the need to protect intellectual property rights, said don Rosenberg (Don Rosenberg), Executive Vice President and General counsel, Qualcomm Incorporated. — Apple continues to benefit from our intellectual property, refusing to give us a refund. These injunctions are another confirmation of the strength of the extensive patent portfolio of Qualcomm”.

The patents in question in this case, allow you to customize and change the size and appearance of your photos, and manage applications using the touch screen.

In China and other jurisdictions around the world are awaiting the decision of similar requests to cease violations of Apple’s other patents of Qualcomm.

Oops: Apple’s Squid Emoji is Upside Down

Silicon Valley has a habit of not learning from its mistakes.

The Internet made a scene early this year when Unicode revealed 157 new emojis—including something vaguely like a wheeled transport device, a backwards Deoxyribonucleic acid, and an anatomically incorrect shellfish.

Now, we all send texts featuring modern skateboards, right-handed double helixes, and 10-legged lobsters … and, apparently, upside-down squid.

On Wednesday, the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California tweeted the alarming fact that “Apple’s squid emoji is upside down.”

“Not even squidding,” the museum wrote. “The siphon should be behind the head. [Right now] it just looks like a weirdo nose.”

The muscular structure, located on the mantle, is used for respiration and discharge of waste, as well as locomotion. Water gets sucked into the mantle cavity, then pushed out of the funnel in a fast, strong jet. Its direction can be changed to suit the traveler’s route.

But no matter what, the siphon can not physically move from one side of the body to the other.

In Cupertino’s version, the cephalopod looks like Karl Malden.

“I noticed the error when I first saw the game but had some pressing ocean issues prioritized ahead of it,” Patrick Webster, social media content creator at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, said in a statement emailed to Geek. “[Wednesday] morning, a meme template with a penchant for biologically accurate emoji asked to use our Twitter feed for a quick PSA, and now here we are.”

The squid emoji was first introduced in 2016. But folks must have been too incensed by Google’s upside-down cheeseburger to even notice.

More than 70 new emoji were released as part of Apple’s recent iOS 12.1 update; iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac users now have access to characters with red, grey, or curly hair, more emotive smiley faces; and additional representations of animals, sports, and food (including a cream cheese-covered bagel).

There is no word on whether the squid issue will be resolved. Apple did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.

The company Japan Display, which is Apple’s supplier as claimed, this month began to reduce the production of LCD panels for smartphones iPhone XR. This is because sales of this model were below expectations.

The reduction is approximately 30% compared with the November level. It will lead to a deterioration of the performance of the company, which was considering a contract with Apple to supply displays for iPhone XR as a lifeboat, able to pull her out of the strip in annual losses continuing for four years.
