I hate to tell you this, but you are wrong on every count and display woeful ignorance of MultiTouch. Fingerworks created MultiTouch for desktop machines years before Apple bought them out. Your "huge pinching motions" statement makes absolutely no sense and tells me you know nothing about Fingerworks products. I use pinching motions all the time with my iGesture pad to cut to the clipboard. It takes two fingers, like picking up a sheet of paper. Zoom, on the iGesture as well as the iPhone, takes five fingers on ONE hand. Why do I need gestures? Because I have about 30 separate commands at my fingertips without having to reach for the keyboard. And the combination of USB Overdrive and Menu Master reassigns those commands every time I switch applications. For instance, the moment I switch to any of my web browsers, the iGesture is programmed to give me forward, back, home, reload, stop, command-click to open in new tab, open new tab, next tab and previous tab, on top of the regular global functions that I keep the same to provide consistency, like cut, copy, paste, zoom in, zoom out, single click, double click, scrolling by page, scrolling by line, open file, new window, close window, quit application, etc. Now THAT's useful. I have all the same precision as any mouse plus better ergonomics. You may want to learn more about the history and functionality of MultiTouch before screaming that it's only good for the iPhone.
