Apple patents multitouch tech

As reported here on Slashdot and BetaNews. Apple has a propensity of IPR overprotection. How is this going to bode for touch? we’ll know soon enough.

My take: This is stupid. beyond stupid. what’s apple going to patent next? use of the color white with respect to consumer electronics? How about the letter ‘I’? Innovation is dependent on completely exploring the scope of a concept before moving on to the next. Processor were pushed to their limits before multi-core processors came out. Anyone who thinks Apple retarding progress on touch technology (which they assuredly will do) is a good thing say ‘I’.

Oh wait, saying ‘I’ is probably ripping IP.
