I see the Graphics Gradient using OpenCL has a familiar face to me in it. Frank Brunner was the co-creator of TIFFany 3.x and co-founder, along with Stan Jirman, of CaffeineSoft Inc.

I'll never forget during the merger at WWDC '97 when Stan and Ralf were demoing TIFFany 3 [I was there as an engineer for Apple] and Adobe engineers were writing down everything they saw and wanted to copy for Photoshop.

Realtime gradients could be used for vector based UI graphics. That means all UI elements including icons can be resolution independant while maintaining high quality artwork.
