    Then you cite the UI for the Newton [Apple IP] to aide your original position. How does that improve your position?



    Actually, what I did cite initially was a direct comparison between the Palm Application Launcher of yore and the current iPhone Springboard. Someone else completely randomly brought up the Newton (you missed that as well?) - I posted a link to suggest that nothing about the Newton UI was directly comparable in context. I think you've missed big chunks of what was written. It can't be explained any other way?

    The more I look at the the iPhone's UI for instance, the more I see the influences of the Palm Pilot. Go back 12 years and you'll see the same grid arrangement of application icons. The four fixed icons that make up the bottom row clearly perform the same quick access function that the hard buttons on the Palm Pilot did all those years ago.



    It looks like we can actually go back 16 years and "see the same grid arrangement of applications", including a number of "fixed icons that make up the bottom row". On an Apple product.
