good-artists-borrow-great-artists-steal dept.

Hmmm...both Microsoft and Apple coming out with multi-touch technology in the same year???

The natural question, given the past history of these companies is: Whom did they steal this technology from? ;-)

Here's one possible answer:

http://www.perceptivepixel.com/
http://cs.nyu.edu/~jhan/

These companies are really the "Anu Malik"s of the technology world :-).

he he, already seen in n times...Also see the documentary "Triumph of the nerds". There are fragments posted on youtube. That's where I got the quote "Good artists..." from. Steve Jobs quoted it in an interview. Its from Pablo Picasso.
