Multi-Touch Systems that I Have Known and Loved


Since the announcements of the iPhone and Microsoft’s Surface (both in 2007),  an especially large number of people have asked me about multi-touch.  The reason is largely because they know that I have been involved in the topic for a number of years.  The problem is, I can’t take the time to give a detailed reply to each question.  So I have done the next best thing (I hope).  That is, start compiling my would-be answer in this document.  The assumption is that ultimately it is less work to give one reasonable answer than many unsatisfactory ones.
