  • The U.S. patent office rules an Apple (AAPL) patent used in its pinch-to-zoom implementation shouldn't have been granted, boosting Samsung (SSNLF.PK) in its attempt to overturn a $1.05B U.S. jury verdict against it in its global IP war with Apple.

The 21.5" iMac has a shipping time of 7-10 business days. [View news story]

  • VirnetX (VHC) +28.6% following its legal win against Apple. Though the ruling was related to FaceTime, VirnetX's VPN patents could theoretically be asserted against many other products - the company is also suing Cisco, Avaya, and Siemens. An Apple (AAPL) attorney sounds defiant: "VirnetX is not entitled to money for things they did not invent. The VirnetX technology, if used, is a small part of very large, complex products." Samsung and Google probably feel the same away about some other patents. (PR[View news story]

Apple had previously told customers they would receive their pre-ordered iPads the same day the tablet goes on sale in stores.  [View news story]
