Legal Remember when Steve Jobs launched the iPhone, and held it up in the air, proudly proclaiming "Boy, have we patented it", followed by a massive applause of the adoring audience? It may seem like this wasn't just an empty claim, either. During the earnings conference call yesterday, the company hinted at possible legal action against Palm were the Pre to infringe on iPhone patents.

You do realize Apple was in the PDA business before Palm with the Newton, right?

Likewise, you do realize that Apple did not invent the touch-screen PDA -- the Sony PTC-300 (1991) preceded the Newton: http://www.sony.net/Fun/design/history/product/1990/ptc-300.html
