Apple In a possible legal showdown over multitouch patents between Apple and Palm, the Cupertino gadget maker has just looted a decent weapon off the dead body that is the US patent system: a patent on just about all multitouch gestures used in the iPhone and iPod Touch, such as swiping, pinching, and so on. Wielding this weapon, Apple suddenly has a pretty good case against Palm.

Is it against Palm or maybe it is against Microsoft? I think Windows 7 is supposed too support touch screens.

Or is it against touch screens in netbooks - they were suppose to come out this year for both Windows and Linux.

Good what in Europe we can ignore this patent nonsense. Soon probably EU Commission will send Apple to court like they did with Microsoft in the past.
