This all sounds exactly analogous to all the arguments as to why Apple could never succeed in the mobile phone market and we all know how that turned out.  This type of analysis bodes very well for the success of an iPanel IMO.
Being on the East Coast AND in Europe could be quite painful.
The technology exists today to directly, and cost effectively address your design concerns.Clearly two (or more) cameras with at least 1 the direction of which can be changed would solve this. Today's face recognition software would allow tracking easily, especially combined with a microphone array to detect who is speaking.This would easily be address with a small array of microphones acting in a phased array combined with face recognition. The TV would track faces and...
Huh? Didn't you see that Terms of Service you agreed to as you activated the phone?
How do you know that's not what their doing? If Samsung is refusing this is the next logical step. We have no idea what the private negotiations are about.

Soundjam was software. This is describing dedicated hardware.
Everything is obvious in hindsight. What they claimed was more than just playlists and syncing.It was all of that, in 2001. IMO that is not blatantly obvious at the time. The obvious argument is hard to judge. Look at the case behind the movie 'Flash of Genius'. The arguments made by Ford were basically obviousness give a transistor and a delay circuit and the need for intermittent wipers it was 'obvious' .
What? and Why, specifically? Is it not new, is it not original? Be specific.
Why would this put HTC 'Out of business'?? For the first patent we're talking about 'data detectors' creating links contextually on information in a text stream. If Apple would be successful, and decide NOT to license, which is their right, HTC would just have to remove this feature - hardly out of business. It would put them at a competitive disadvantage but that's what R&D is all about.And for those that say 'This is obvious'. First, its the use of this in the UI...
