i mean i think something as basic as multitouch shouldnt be patent-able, but if it is, like some common things we use every day and dont realize that they use licensed patented technology, then why not just license it?
also, is apple suing microsoft for its surface? or John King/CNN for the big board?
reasons why Apple's multitouch patent won't hold...
Reasoned out pretty well.
I think Apple is going to use their warchest flush with cash to drown Palm in legal paperwork - I wonder what the mighty IBM (of 5 zillion patents owner fame) would have to say about this patent grab...
(disclosure: I own some aapl)
