Interesting... seems like Creative could have gotten more than 100 million. But creative is in a bit of financial trouble and probably realize that 100 million now is better than 500 million 7 years from now.

ye i read that although the thing to note is that creative also got the other lawsuits against it dropped and a deal to make accessories for the ipod. ironic in a way but should prove quite lucrative.

"Creative is very fortunate to have been granted this early patent," Apple's CEO Steve Jobs said in a press release.`"

Did someone say "sore loser"?

Damn Steve, it must suck to realise that your company isn't invincible. Just think, now you have something to talk about with the Sony guys at the bar.
