Steve and Eric's multitouch showdown

New, 15 comments

So Steven Levy's new book In the Plex has a story about Steve Jobs seeing pinch-to-zoom in Android 1.0 and basically ending what had been a very positive relationship between Apple and Google. It's a juicy story, but one that seems just a bit off to me, so I wrote up a post on my personal blog with all the unanswered questions. It's crazy to think that we tracked the Android multitouch story so closely for so long and now it's totally off the radar -- I'd love to know what actually happened behind the scenes.
