@ Lom.

I guess you can't read. The video link you provide is dated 2008 whereas Apple's patent is dated 2007 with associate patents dating back to 2001. The gestures are about multi-touch as opposed to stylus-based. You're just a PC and/or Android Whiner and I'm so pleased to see that a legitimately granted patent can get under your skin. It's official, Apple owns it and get over it.

How they can patent this? Tommorow they will patent the tissue.

Got to wonder whether other Android vendors have patent licenses or not. They have implemented lots of similar gestures on their touch screens from 2007 onwards. The flurry of court action has focused around internals like 3G. I wonder when Apple might start enforcing these touch patents.
