Apple Store Rideau Opening
Apple today officially opened Apple Store Rideau, its first store in Ottawa and first outside of the wider Toronto Area in Ontario. Electronista and MacNN had witnesses on hand to cover the opening and can note that the store is relatively unique: it uses Apple's latest retail design and, like the Scottsdale, Arizona store, has a contiguous glass front rather than the side windows common to many older stores. It also has a central iMac kiosk dedicated to booking Concierge appointments, a central "pillar" for accessories and a large Genius Bar. The design is believed to be one of the larger in-mall layouts Apple has made.

Apple, MS, LG being sued
Apple, Microsoft, LG, and 20 other companies are being sued for patent infringement by Tsera, who claims to have invented the touch pad used in devices such as the iPod classic, the Zune, and the Chocolate VX8500. The patent was first filed in 1999 by Chuang Li and was granted in 2003, following the release of the second generation iPod classic. The patent's wording could lead to the case being thrown out as it describes the technology differently from how the iPod works. The patent states that "no immediate visual feedback is provided as a command pattern is traced, and the user does not need to view the device to enter commands."
Syncode App evaluation
Syncode has posted information regarding the approval process for its application, iTweetReply, at the App Store and calls for more transparent and faster app evaluations. The developer submitted its application for evaluation on June 9th and did not receive approval until July 10th. Syncode believes an Apple tester viewed the login screen and stopped short of testing the rest of the application. A few days later Apple sent the developers an email suggesting the application was taking longer than expected to evaluate.
