3D News, GL, DirectX More patent news? Sorry, but for some reason, there's a spike in patent, trademark, and related news this week - not entirely unsurprising considering it's earnings season. HTC, currently under attack from Apple and a recent signer of Microsoft patent agreement regarding Android, has bought S3 Graphics... For the patents. Patents Apple has already been found infringing upon.

Maybe. I guess it depends on how Apple plays it and the value of the patents. I wouldn't care having two pebbles thrown at me if I can lob back some boulders.

I guess we'll see. It's interesting as an observer...
