dookdookdook: Ironic headline, considering touchscreens are an inferior UI system designed to utilize precisely none of our evolutionary adaptations.
WhackingDay: Does anyone else think it's kind of ridiculous that you can patent a UI feature like that? Isn't this why various organizations try to create standards so that we don't get crazy, competing methods of doing, well standard stuff?Once you "pinch to zoom" one time it's fairly clear that that was the obvious way to do zooming on a touch screen panel. Why does every other company have to pay the original idea millions of dollars, possibly every year, just for that one method?
tillerman35: I pinch-to-zoom maybe five times a year, even on my phone. I don't think I'd miss it if Apple's lawyers managed to get it removed from every phone that doesn't start with "i"
tillerman35: 2. Clockwise circles to zoom in. Widdershins to zoom out.
