Apple Is Now Suing Samsung Over Autocorrect

The seemingly endless litigation between Apple and Samsung continues with a report that Apple filed a complaint against Samsung in federal court this week.

According to PaidContent, the complaint filed in the US District Court in San Jose concerns two patents, 8,074,172 and 8,086,604. The first of the patents, "Method, system, and graphical user interface for providing word recommendations," appears to cover Apple's very nice, if frequently frustrating, autocorrect system. The second patent is called "Universal interface for retrieval of information in a computer system." No word on what exactly the lawsuits allege or which Samsung devices in particular are under fire. We'll keep you posted as we learn more.
