The rumor mill has been buzzing for a long time regarding the Apple Tablet. The rumors are also not going to die anytime soon, especially now that a new Apple Patent has cropped up on the World Wide Web. This new patent focusses on improving digital ink recognition techniques that can come handy for developing a pen-based tablet!
However before you completely jump on the Apple Tablet bandwagon let me just clear that the patent stresses more on digital ink recognition as a technology and less on a tablet computer. But that doesn't mean that an Apple Tablet is not on the horizon.
What we find ironic is that Apple is now focusing on the good old stylus as during the iPhone launch they had no problem rubbishing it and heralding the finger as "best pointing device in the world"!
