Apple Wins More Multitouch Patents

Apple Wins More Multitouch Gesture Patents

I often joke about Apple's touch-screen gestures on the iPhone and iPad . . . it seems like each new function comes with a new gesture; one finger, two fingers, even three-finger tapping produces a specific result. How many more hand gestures can there be, anyhow?

Turns out, there are plenty more, and now Apple has patented 12 new gestures for use on its multitouch devices. Two notable inclusions: gestures that control the tempo of music playing on an iPod (presumably for use while working out), and a patent that includes a larger virtual keyboard or larger surface computers.
