So Stack wasn't working on a new Apple TV or the iPhone 5, but Steve's private yacht instead.

French designer Philipe Starck teased us all last week when he revealed during a radio show interview that he had been working on a “revolutionary” new product with Apple that would launch within the next 8 months.

Starck has now confirmed that he was actually helping the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs design his own yacht.

Infographic: Who’s Suing Whom In Mobile… As Re-Imagined By A Competent Designer

We absolutely loved that fantastic chart we posted yesterday showing off the litigious melee amongst smartphone companies as they all try to figure out which of their thousands of patents are enforceable and which are nonsense… but, infographically, it was a bit ugly, like a particularly inelegant illustration of magnetic repulsion found in a 70s-era high school physics book.

The updated chart by George Kokkinidis above conveys the same information more attractively, with clean geometric precision, sexy fonts and color coded arcs.

We approve. Maybe the Guardian should hire this guy instead of doing all of their infographics in Powerpoint ’97.
