I've been meaning to comment on this for almost a week now, but I've just
been too consumed in other things. I'm in Japan now so I have a bit more
time (less meetings each day ;-).

I'm not sure where the multi-touch documents came from that were posted on
the internet. They were concept drawings I did a while back. (For the
record, long before Apple's interface patents.)

The vendor of the touch panel we are using said it might be possible. But it
would be a considerable driver effort. We are not going to have this done
for our initial Neo1973 release. I was never even on our roadmap for this

I'll try to see if I can dig up more information about this for Robert when
I return to Taiwan. I know it's something that got you very excited.

Once again, sorry for the needless confusion this has caused.
