Sorry, Apple, but according to Apple Insider, your pinch-to-zoom patent has been invalidated by the USPTO.

This patent (7,844,915 claim 8) was a major player in Apple’s initial win over Samsung back in August, but it’s still unclear if this will change any of the outcome of the trial. There is still time for appeals, post trial hearings, final rulings, and all that jazz.

And that’s your daily snoozefest of patent chatter.
