It’s always odd when you hear that a politician is ‘worried’ or ‘concerned’ by such things as iPhone or iPads, even more so when the concern centers around Apple’s latest granted patent for the ‘slide to unlock’ feature, but in the case of Taiwans PM we can see the problem!

Taiwanese Premier Wu Den-yih is concerned that Apple’s latest patent win could cause financial grief for Taiwanese consumer electronics companies and their OEM’s.

Gizchina News of the week
