PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

I personally still don't really see the need for multitouch. Doesn't really provide anything special. Pinch to zoom is annoying and other than that, don't really use multitouch for anything. I'm sure there are applications out there that depend on it but I haven't come across any that I need yet.
