Samsung: Whether or not we ripped off Appleâ€™s tech, Apple stole it to begin with -- Provides video evidence of a tablet built by Mitsubishi to show that Apple's patent on pinch-to-zoom technology should not be valid because it already existed for years before the first iPhone launched TED talk where the guy shows where Apple ripped off all their gesture features from. Included is a video from a demo Microsoft did, that used the gesture controls, over a year before Apple showed them to the public. The person from Microsoft also said tech like that has been around since the 80's. [video=youtube;QKh1Rv0PlOQ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKh1Rv0PlOQ[/video] Apparently Apple has the patent on tapping a phone number to call it. That's so fucking stupid that you can patent simple intuitive shit like that. This isn't about stealing, or cheating, or anything like it. You don't get to lock up an innovation for your exclusive use if it wasn't your creation in the first place. If someone else had the idea first and decided not to hold it hostage, be grateful they're sharing with you. Don't try to claim it as your own and extort everyone else.
