GMGruman writes: Nokia, Apple, HTC are all suiing each other over mobile patents. Google and Microsoft are also in the game. InfoWorld's Paul Krill explains what the fight is all about: control over multitouch, the technology that enables gesture interfaces on iPads, iPhones, and other smartphones.

"Only a brain-damaged operating system would support task switching and not
make the simple next step of supporting multitasking."
