    Samkin, I stand corrected! Apple said they had patents (over 200 on touch technologies) and I went with it. It appears Apple is the second company. Unless, of course they licensed it to someone in the open source community, which I doubt very seriously.

    EDIT: I do not stand corrected!

    Sounds like we still don't know for sure about the multi-touch patent. We must be careful before we commit so called facts. Apple or someone else? Perhaps a dead-heat? Perhaps we can re-categorize it's introduction as an innovation again -- brought to market.

    Nope. These are just applications:
    Neo: iPhone GUI
    Neo: proximity detector

    I haven't tried Google for patents yet either.

    Samkin, you're right again! To be sure, this strategy has not limited the success of the iPod, which has become the defining hand-held consumer appliance and fashion statement in the last half-decade.

    It's in black and white, but I can't imagine Jobs could be that dumb.
    Watch this space for the hack.
