comment Double tap spacebar to insert period and capitalize next character (RIM) - Issued Patent - PRIOR ART REQUEST
The headline "insert period and space" does not describe the same output as claim 16(B), ~"insert period and capitalize next character". Did I miss something or should the headline be changed?

comment Could Apple's recent patents be based on prior art?
Thank you for this good overview of touch-interaction concepts. While these concepts definitely were known before Apple's patent application, I doubt that the exact method for implementing these concepts - as described in the patent - had been published before. Do you have any information on this? Additionally, what is the source of "In 1983, two Bell Labs employees..."?

comment Would software written in a country without software patents constitute prior art in the USA?
ad 1.: Actually, software itself is not recognized as "invention" in Europe, and cannot be patented. However, technical contributions - which may be implemented in a computer program - can be patented.
