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.

In fact BeOS was vastly cheaper option than buying NeXT. BeOS was also far more advanced and ran on both standard Motorola Mac and PC hardware

OSX was basically unusable for several years after it was released.
