Quantum research group is sueing Apple over the wonderful “click wheel” supposedly violating its patent for “charge-transfer technology.” The legal action began in 2005 but didn’t become public until now. Now if the claim is valid or not I don’t know and still remains to be seen but I don’t think that Apple will let their ingenius click wheel die. Well the click wheel may die with the introduction of the iPhone the new interface for the iPod could be the touch screen. I think that Apple may end up settling out of court like many of their other law suits but we’ll have to wait and see.
