    I already know that the storm posesses the capabilities of multi-touch as exampled in sms/email selection and copy/paste but i believe that the ability to zoom in/out the way the iphone and palm pre does(two fingers slide) would be a sure way to beef up the bb browser. Also the addition of this zoom feature to pictures in the media player would be great also. Can this be done by a software update or is it something that we have missed out on. Or better yet can it be implemented by a 3rd party-browser like bolt or opera?

    No apple owns it will go after anyone that has it. That feature is a pia using one hand.

    The reason is because Apple just received the patent during the last two weeks, and all those others who have this functionality will have to deal with them now, unless they already have cross-licensing agreements. The Pre is the specific example that Apple named of those who do NOT. This should be interesting...

    Wasn't the Apple patent only for pinch zooming?

    I do not understand why RIM doesn't integrate inertia scrolling. The AP new application uses it.

    This is just to let everyone know that I'm filing for a "Breathing" patent on Monday. Everyone in the world is going to be in big trouble in a few weeks when I get it.
