Apple and Microsoft are so obviously not in the wrong. The methods used as described in the patent are just way too normal to me. Why?

Quote:
The user’s finger motions are matched by a microcontroller within the device to a number of preset patterns, which in turn translate into a function or command.
Obviously a finger's motions are to be detected as this is the key to touch-screen.

Then, they are matched by a microcontroller into preset patterns. Well let's just look at this step as changing the motions into a pattern that can be read.

Then, it is translated into a command that enables the Zune/Ipod to understand the motion and act accordingly.

This seems like a very normal procedure that Microsoft or Apple probably would have done whether or not they knew about this method.

Is there a free software out there that will transfer my Ipod music to my PC? There's plenty of software that cost $20 or more, but I don't want to spend money on something that should have been a feature in iTunes to begin with.
