(not 100% if this is new)

After searching the european patent office I found these two patents to do with touch screens (filed about a month ago).

It appears to be quite simple. When your finger is positioned over something, it magnifies.

Similar, to before!

But I still love the future because of Apple, and those shares of mine have gone up nearly 5 times in the last few of years!!!




I would like to add that people think a company has to wait a while after they file a patent to bring out a product, even if that company has being
working on that invention for a while.

NOT TRUE!

My father has two inventions that he released into the market place while the patent was pending! (i.e. the waiting period, to see if you are the first).

The main thing is to do a thorough patent search, and once you (apple) have done your homework properly, then the only way is up!

(patent pending is mearly a legality that everybody including apple has to go through)

If apple has done their homework, and my bet is they have, because the main reason you file a patent is because you found nothing
else in your searches that is like your product!!!

I don't know why, but those little drawings of the user's hand always make me smile/laugh. Too cute.

ehhhh would you people finally STOP with all this tablet talk.... YUCK i dont think it will ever happen. Tablets to me seem like a very small niche/dead/dying market.

Tablets are definitely a dying/dead/obsoleting/ not worth it market. But a compact laptop with innovative touch-screen capabilities, e.g. capabilities that don't step on the toes of a keyboard/trackpad, but instead compliment already established interface conventions whilst potentially bringing something new to the table(like expose did) that would be neat and very apple-like. imo.

Exactly what I was thinking.

The metaDESK concept (Ishii & Ullmer) relies on these affordances (in the Donald Norman sense). Using interface conventions computer users have learned from the GUI and applying them as a tangible interface with gestural control. Very cool.
