Apple Locks In Multi-Touch Patent


Palm and other smartphone manufacturers are super-fucked right now. “Why?” you ask? It’s quite simple, really. See, Steve Jobs and his crew at Apple designed and invented multi-touch gesturing on a device. Don’t believe me? Might want to check out United States Patent Number 7,479,949, which states:

Touch screen device, method, and graphical user interface for determining commands by applying heuristics.”

Yeah. Well. Shit. If I worked for Palm right now, I’d pretty much fucking quit. How you going to beat that shit? Huh? Resistance is futile. Take a bite of the Apple already, ’cause that iPhone sure is tasty.
