Submission + - US Patent Office Invalidates Apple's "Rubber Banding" Patent (appleinsider.com)

bhagwad writes: "The patent that was the cause of so much grief to Samsung in the recently concluded trial with Apple has been tentatively invalidated by the USPTO. The challenge was filed anonymously, but it obviously could have been filed by any smartphone manufacturer. Will this have an effect on further proceedings in the case or perhaps more importantly on the inevitable appeal?"

Submission + - Invisible tanks?

cadeon writes: "Well, we don't have flying tanks yet, but the UK isn't too far from invisible ones. New technology that can make tanks invisible has been unveiled by the Ministry of Defence. In secret trials last week, the Army said it had made a vehicle completely disappear and predicted that an invisible tank would be ready for service by 2012.

If these things work anything like the Stealth Tanks in Command and Conquer, then war has officially became scary."
