Apple as we all know is known for going and patenting almost meaninglessly on every little item they have. This time they have gone and patented their multi-touch screens. This means that the phones with screens in which you can pinch to zoom in on images will possibly all fall under fire of Apple. No one is entirely sure what Apple plans to do with this new feature license. Could it be that they aim to harass or sue competitors whom are also using the multi-touch interface on their screens. It is only sure that this will cause a stir and the market, but it will also once again ensure Apple has something that is entirely exclusive to them. I guess only time will tell what they have planned to do with this license, but if they take drastic action this could be a move that will rock the mobile phone and the mobile touch screen device world for sure.
