Legal In a statement released today, Apple announced it is suing HTC, claiming the Taiwanese phone maker infringed upon 20 of Cupertino's patents related to the iPhone. After Nokia and Apple suing one another a number of times over the past couple of months, this is the next high-profile patent lawsuit in the mobile phones business. Engadget has the filings, and it seems that Apple wants to avoid angering Microsoft, but has no qualms about taking on Google. Update: Engadget analyses every single patent in the claim.

Member since:

one of the noticable things i saw and laughed at is Apple claiming to have invented multi touch... Multi touch concepts and even working systems (rare, but out there), have existed for teh better part of 10 years."

You ain't going back far enough -- try 28 years (multi-touch first appeared in 1982):

In our world, multi-touch started two years before the original Mac. In the RDF, multi-touch was born with the Iphone.
