Apple wins six patents

Apple has been granted six new patents, including an iChat filing and several submissions involving product design. The iChat video patent, titled "Digital image coding system having self-adjusting selection criteria for selecting a transform function," relates to coding digital video images and reducing loss of image information by adjusting parameters in the coding process.

The three design wins relate to the iPod classic, the third generation iPod nano and the Apple wireless keyboard. The design team includes Steve Jobs and Jonathan Ive.
