RE: Fw: Apple pips its rivals with the iPod that talks

G'day all,

Does this have potential implications for Rockbox? My initial, uneducated,
thoughts are that it shouldn't as RB implemented the voice UI interface,
which could be viewed now as a look-a-like framework, before Apple filed
it's patents.

Interesting that Apple have gone down this road.

Cheers.
AB

...which, IIRC, was implemented in Rockbox before Apple filed their
"ingenious" patent.
