"And we Intend to Protect Them"

On January 9, 2007 at MacWorld Expo, Apple CEO Steve Jobs formally introduced the very first iPhone in typical showman fashion.  Here are two Jobs quotes from that introduction.

We’re going to touch this with our fingers. And we have invented a new technology called multi-touch, which is phenomenal. It works like magic. You don’t need a stylus. It’s far more accurate than any touch display that’s ever been shipped. It ignores unintended touches, it’s super-smart. You can do multi-finger gestures on it. And boy, have we patented it.


We’ve been innovating like crazy the last few years on this, and we’ve filed for over 200 patents for all the inventions in iPhone. And we intend to protect them.

I love a man of his word!
