Yeah, we're pretty sick of the iSlate talk too, so we'll completely refrain from predicting any possible future applications for Apple's latest patent, a new type of LCD circuitry that better integrates capacitive touch by somehow integrating touch sensitivity into the display pixels themselves. It's pretty obscure, techy stuff, but the result should be less circuitry within the display in theory boosting efficiency and, notably, reducing thickness. You know what that means: even thinner tablets. (Sorry, we couldn't resist.)
