Apple Obtains Patent on Pinch-to-Zoom for Multitouch Displays, but It’s Limited

After obtaining the trademark for "There's an App for That," and managing to also figure out a way to censor filthy text messages, it looks like Apple is on a bit of a winning streak for the moment. (Which will probably only get better on October 20th.) Revealed today, Apple has just been awarded a limited patent on pinch-to-zoom for multitouch displays, but it's not as exhaustive as Apple probably would have liked. There are some limitations, and as it usually does, it comes down to the language found within the awarded patent.

Displax Oqtopus is a Portable All-in-One Multitouch Table Featuring Windows 7

Multitouch tables are still expensive, but that's not stopping their development. Displax has unveiled their brand new Oqtopus multitouch table, featuring Microsoft's Windows 7. It's a portable method to bring the interactivity of a touchscreen table to the commercial market. Unfortunately, as it's been shown by Microsoft and their Surface project, getting that technology into an All-in-One table isn't cheap, even if it is a great way to showcase the technology.

Apple tease virtual OS X controls in new patent application

Apple tease virtual OS X controls in new patent application

Sometimes figuring out a company's intentions from their patent filings is pretty straightforward; other times, like with Apple's new "Virtual Input Tools" filing, you have to read between the lines a little.  Patently Apple spotted what they're suggesting could be Apple's "new and revolutionary feature for Mac OS X" as teased in a job listing back in July.  The concept is that a virtual user interface - such as a trackpad shown on a touchscreen, or a sub-section of a notebook's display mapped to the physical trackpad - could allow for proportional control of the interface or what's being displayed.

Acer Aspire AZ5700-U3112 and AZ3100-U3072 All-In-Ones outed

Acer seems to have taken a leaf out of Bang & Olufsen's design book with the aesthetic for their new all-in-ones, with the AMD-based Acer Aspire AZ3100-U3072 and the Intel-based Acer Aspire AZ5700-U3112 offering perhaps the best styling this side of an iMac.  The 21.5-inch AZ3100-U3072 is the cheaper option, with AMD's 2GHz Athlon II 170u CPU, 3GB of memory and a 500GB HDD, while the 23-inch Full HD AZ5700-U3112 gets Intel's 3.2GHz Core i5-650 CPU, 4GB of memory, a 1TB HDD and a touchscreen.

Getac V200 rugged Core i7 tablet PC outed

Rugged computer specialist Getac has outed its successor a sibling to the V100 convertible tablet PC, and as you might expect it's no less sturdy.  The Getac V200 has a 12.1-inch super-bright 1,200 nit multitouch-capable display, 2.0GHz Intel Core i7-620LM processor and WiFi b/g/n, but more importantly perhaps it's MIL-STD-810G and IP65 compliant for resilience to dust, vibration, temperatures as low as -20 degrees centigrade and water.

iPod nano 6th-gen hands-on

At first glance, if it wasn't for the touchscreen display up front, you could easily mistake the new iPod nano for the iPod shuffle.  Significantly smaller than its predecessor, the new nano gains a clip, a 1.54-inch 240 x 240 multitouch-capable display and the shuffle's VoiceOver, turning it potentially Apple's most tactile PMP yet.
