+ - HTC Buys Graphics Veteran S3 To Block Apple?->

Submitted by siliconbits
siliconbits (943161) writes "Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC has announced that it is buying VIA's stake in S3 Graphics which the press release says is "a leading provider of innovative graphics visualization technologies used in PCs, game consoles and mobile devices".
Obviously those in the tech trade for long enough will remember that S3 used to manufacture graphic chipsets towards the end of the last century before being purchased by VIA in 2001 after S3 filed for bankruptcy. The acquisition comes only a few days after Apple was found guilty of infringing two patents owned by S3 Graphics which covered IP found in SoC used in iOS Devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV)"
