Seems like we can't go a week without another patent infringement lawsuit being filed, and this one's no different. Apparently, VIA Technologies, maker of fine computational processors, is mad as hell with Apple's allegedly infringing ways, and it's not gonna take it anymore. Filed in the US District Court in Delaware, VIA claims that Cupertino's iThings and Apple TVs infringe patent numbers 6,253,312, 6,253,311 and 6,754,810, which cover various microprocessor functions. A complaint's also been lodged with the ITC -- in order to hasten the settlement talks, no doubt. So, all that's left is the countdown until these two shake hands, exchange checks and go on about their business... preferably outside the courtroom.
