Danish professor Gert Frølund Pedersen, that predicted the iPhone 4 “antennagate” controversy, thinks Apple may once again run into trouble regarding the antenna. This time it might add a new chapter to the “patent wars”, since the new antenna switching solution of the iPhone 4S may infringe on Samsung patents.
Based on available information about the design of the iPhone 4S, Pedersen think that Apple is likely to come into conflict with several patents related to antenna selection, that he and several other researchers at Aalborg University in Denmark have developed – and several years ago sold to Samsung.
Dean Kamen the inventor of the Segway scooter have dreamed up an inflatable mobile wind turbine that also can provide an eye-catching advertising platform.
The concept of an inflatable wind turbines may not be an entirely new idea, but the prolific inventor Dean Kamen has detailed one of a slightly different sort.

Samsung is currently caught up in a legal battle with Apple that is trying to prevent them from from selling their Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Europe.
A judgment made in the Regional Court of Dusseldorf in Germany granted Apple a preliminary injunction barring the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. The judge who made the decision has backed Apple’s assertion that Samsung’s tablets infringe on the patented design of the iPad 2.
Samsung has now chosen to appeal the court decision and one element of Samsung’s defense strategy is the claim that the iPad is in fact ripped off from a tablet design created by Stanley Kubrick for 1968’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
