Picsel is claiming that Picsel-patented technology that facilitates rapid redrawing of content displayed on devices' screens is being used by the iPhone and iPod Touch. The technology allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to zoom and pan across documents and web pages without lengthy waits for the screen to refresh, the companies say.
The patent in question is 7,450,114: User interface systems and methods for manipulating and viewing digital documents — filed on April 16, 2001 and granted November 11, 2008." Link to Original Source top
