What part of "I'm not a excellent reader" did you not understand.
Then why post it with a misleading title? learn to read my friend....I'm telling you reading will never, ever...ever leave your life even if you're not in school


My title is not misleading it's a question if you paid any attention to it.

I'm a failure in English class, I barely pass each semester with a -C. I don't understand what I read well and I figured someone more educated than myself could tell me if the patent would affect Wii U. I never asked for your philosophy on literature.

Just know that Nintendo uses proprietary tech leaving it free of patent fees and lawsuits.

Ugh. No, you guys have it wrong. Capacitive is the type of screen used in most smartphones, the PSV, and tablet computers. It works by sensing the electricity, not the heat, in your body.

Resistive, on the other hand, runs by sensing pressure. This is what's used in, for example, the ViVaz Pro and the NDS/3DS.

The patent refers to the use of multitouch (in other words, capacitive, as resistive screens cannot use multitouch) to move a page within a page. Because the Wii U uses a resistive screen, this cannot possibly refer to the Wii U. Therefore, the Wii U will be unaffected by this patent.

What about a page within a page within a page???

Your entire life has been a mathematical error. A mathematical error I'm about to correct.

Ahh, my bad. I knew it was capacitive and restive, but I couldn't remember which one was which. Does it really sense the electricity? I always thought it was the heat. Well, you learn something new everyday!
