I fail to see something any close to FingerWorks technology in this
I say that because I did take the time to read Wayne Westerman's about the FingerWorks MultiTouch technology. It is something I could understand after some re-reading of the most technical parts. This patent, I have a hard time to read more than five words before I absolutely need to close my browser...
I say it is full fledged gibberish with some childish nonsense illustrations with an official patent number near the Apple trademark put there for a whole bunch a lawyers ready to dissuade anyone who could ever think about doing something like this. And the less this has a meaning, the better... And this is a real achievement, I tell you that this will become a master peace among the most silly patent ever.
After all, maybe Wayne and John are just cleaning the floor in there. Maybe they were told something like: We give you money and in return we want you on another planet...
If Wayne got his degree of Doctor of Philosophy with his multitouch tech, I wonder what he would have got instead with something like this patent... In a zoo, he would have collected a few peanuts, at best. And if only one thing is for sure, we would not have our 1000$ TS on our desk.
I already know that I won’t have anything related to this patent soon. It looks like they have a few decades of home work before them. I can wait for a while but I rather think I'll have time to die and resurrect several times before then.
Come on Steve, you can do better.
