    I think this will only with pushing a custom ROM on your phone, or taking parts of the Milestone dump. THAT can brick your phone, if not done right!

    Ya I will miss mye eye booting up though. I think let us keep the eye and instead port support for animated backgrounds and animated gif support within the custom rom. Alldroid.org says it will be a week or two before we see a rom for this

    For those that don't want to hack, anyone have any guesses how long before multi touch will be included in an OS OTA/upgrade?

    when the fear of Apple dies.... who knows when that'll be. Can't they just let us have multi-touch in the states? :mad:

    I take it Apple has the stranglehold on multi touch here in the states then? I can only imagine they would go after anyone that included that on their phone/OS if that is the case.

    Pretty much how it's been. On a side note... how is it that Nikon can so boldly promote it's multi-touch zoom on it's cameras with no issues from Apple? Is it because it's not a smart phone device?

    Good question. I have got to think there are/is time limits that allow things like multi touch to be accessible to other companies. Isn't there something written into to copyright laws that only allow for ownership for something like 7 years? Or is this just wishful thinking? Seems like I remember hearing that somewhere at some point.

    i think the copyright deals with 7 'differences'. i may be way off base here. In other words if you change 7 things about a copyrighted material it no longer infringes on the copyright. I don't know how to explain this better, and I'm not even sure I'm on the right track... feel free to correct me/add the rest of the details!
