  Trust me, it's a piece of cake. MS "incorporated" so many features similar to those in OS-X, that all you'll have to do is learn where they are on the Mac and you'll be well on your way.
Can't wait to see where pricing will be.
Sure made the end of my work day fly by.
  The argument isn't about the physics that they're emulating, it's about what they're using it indicate.
  You're missing the forest for the trees. You're so fixed on one virtual object bouncing off another that you're missing the whole point. I'll spell it out one more time and then I'm going home. The things that rebound in iOS DO NOT in the real world. Thus, the virtualizaton of a real physical effect to indicate that you've reached the end of whatever you've reach the end of is novel and (successfully) patentable.
  Perhaps your explanation will get through. I don't seem to be having much success.
  Hey, you just proved my point! Reading a letter has nothing to do with rebound. This is exactly why the application of the rubber-band effect is novel. Generalizing it by making it into an object that rebounds off another object proves nothing and misses the point. That is not how a letter behaves when you read it.    For it to fit your original assertion that Apple engineers were just emulating the real world by using the rebound effect, the things that rebound in iOS...
  Ok, let's think about what rebounds with the rubber-band effect in iOS. An email message (hence why I used a letter as a real-world example), an article on a webpage (hence my newspaper example) or just a list in a menu or something. When I used to read letters from my brother when he was in the army, it didn't "rubber-band" when I reach the end. When I read the newspaper article, it didn't "rubber-band" when I reached the end. When I reach the end of the menu at the...
  You're manufacturing a "real-world" example to back up your assertion. As I mentioned in my edit to my other post, why would I be reading a letter in a box again?   Oh, I get it, because the iOS device is the "box". /s 
  Wow, that's a stretch (no pun intended). Now if the thing that was rubber-banding in iOS started to fold or wrinkle, you might have something. Also, why would I be reading a letter in a cardboard box anyway?
