Wow! It seems that for some people here, Apple can do no wrong. It is, after all, an all-things-Apple site, but the older I get, the more shades of gray I see. Things just aren't black or white anymore, but that's just me, I guess. For what is worth, the gestures for both companies seem similar in purpose and Apple MAY have to license the technology; it MAY be quite the opposite as well, but I'll leave that to the lawyers to figure out.
