Now that the dust has settled in the wake of Apple's widely publicized announcement of its acquisition of Beats Electronics (which still has yet to close), the Cupertino company's starting to learn that it brought some unexpected baggage with it. Bose today filed a lawsuit against Beats, claiming that the company infringed on five of the company's patents.

As reported by TechCrunch, Bose alleges that Beats' headphones, many of which claim to support "Adaptive Noise Cancellation," draw heavily from Bose's more than 50 years of research into the design of its QuietComfort noise-cancellation headphones.

The patents in question include United States Patent No. 6,717,537, or "Method and Apparatus for Minimizing Latency in Digital Signal Processing Systems;" Patent No. 6,717,537, or "Method and Apparatus for Minimizing Latency in Digital Signal Processing Systems,” Patent No. 8,073,151: “Dynamically Configurable ANR Filter Block Technology;" Patent No. 8,054,992: "High frequency Compensating;" and No. 8,345,888 - "Digital High Frequency Phase Compensation."

And Bose isn't kidding around. The well-known audio company wants Beats to stop producing headphones that infringe on Bose's patents, and the company's even gone so far as to request a ban on offending Beats products from the International Trade Commission.

Bose also responded to TechCrunch with a statement that read as follows: "The filing is comprehensive and explains our position, and as a matter of practice, we don’t comment on on-going litigation. We can share that for over 30 years, Bose has made significant investments in the research, development, engineering and design of the proprietary technologies found in our headphones. Bose’s patented technologies enable the exclusive performance found in our QuietComfort® Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones. We are committed to protecting our investment, protecting our customers, and defending the patents we own."

The controversies associated with unlocking one's iPhone have dogged the smartphone since its origins, but now at last (with some qualifications), it looks like the practice will at last gain some legitimacy. The bill in question only covers the right to switch from one carrier to another, but it's a step forward, and the bill has only one more step to take before it becomes law.

The bill, Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy reports, is called the "Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act" and the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed the bill today. (See? At least Congress can agree on some things.) Last week the Senate approved it, and this week it's expected to go on to President Obama, who's expected to sign it into law.

There's a catch, though: The bill doesn't allow you to drop your current carrier in mid-contract, so you can't ditch your two-year contract with AT&T 12 months in and take up a plan with Verizon. This actually somewhat returns the law to the state of affairs in 2010 before an action by the U.S. Copyright Office in 2012, so that we'll (probably) soon enjoy "the Library of Congress’s former exemption so that consumers may unlock their phones after their contracts have expired."

The bill only covers smartphones as it's currently worded, but it could pave the way for broadening the measure to secondary devices such as tablets in the near future.

Got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question? We have the answer. In this week's installment of Ask, we'll tell you how to combine multiple iPhoto libraries into one.

Question: Somehow I’ve created many iPhoto libraries, some of which are nested within other iPhoto libraries. How do I make it so that I have just one iPhoto library? I get the feeling there is more to it than just dragging the contents of one into the other.

Answer: You are correct — this process is a little more complicated than simply copying one iPhoto library into another. You can do it manually, but it’s usually error-prone and will typically leave you with duplicate photos. The easier way to merge multiple iPhoto libraries is by using the iPhoto Library Manager, which is available for $29 at http://fatcatsoftware.com/iplm.

Using the iPhoto Library Manager, click on the Merge Libraries icon in the toolbar. Here, you will be prompted to drag-and-drop all of the libraries that need merging into the “Source Libraries” section. After doing that, drag-and-drop the library that all of the sources should be merged into using the Destination Library section. We’d advise merging into a new, empty library, and choosing your Desktop as its location. 


One of the tasks that iPhoto Library Manager can perform is automated library merging.

Next, you should choose what happens when the application encounters duplicate files in the “Duplicate Handling” section, and set a few other options in “Options.” When you are done, click “Preview,” and if you are happy with the changes, you can then go ahead with the merge.

After you’ve verified the merge worked and all of your photos are intact, then delete all of the source libraries from your home directory’s Pictures folder, and move the newly created library from your Desktop to the Pictures folder in the Finder. Your new library should load when you fire up iPhoto; you may need to hold down the Option key while starting iPhoto, then select the iPhoto library you wish to open manually.

Ask is written by Cory Bohon, a freelance technology writer, indie Mac and iOS developer, and amateur photographer.
