    Well THX must be in need of money, I'm not necessarily standing up for Apple here, but when they made the iPhone, iPad etc... well they have a pretty big law department and THX is a pretty big name to (as THX claim) steal from, Besides, Apple have their own patents for the speaker designs they use, this will probably go to court and end in THX paying Apple court fees.
