FingerWorks.com Goes Offline, Apple Fanatics Stir Up Frenzy
Less than 24 hours after discovering that Fingerworks.com had gone black, the speculation surrounding the yanking of the site has blossomed full bloom into an "obvious" indication to conspiracy theorists that technology utilized in the forthcoming Apple tablet must have been on display at Fingerworks.com.
According to those claiming to be "in the know," this move is simply Cupertino's endeavor to divert attention away from such technology during these last few days before the tablet is formally unveiled. Naturally, however, taking the site down has only directed more attention to the very digital territory Apple apparently doesn't want us paying much attention too.
The content of Fingerworks.com has been removed this week after remaining online for nearly 5 years after the acquisition of the company by Apple. The removal seems to correspond with the impending announcement of an Apple tablet later this month. ... Up until last week, Fingerworks.com retained photographs and details about their multi-touch keyboards and gesture pads they released for Macs years ago.
It's been widely expected that this sort of all purpose multi-touch interface will be offered in Apple's upcoming tablet. Wayne Westerman who was one of the founders of Fingerworks has since been the author of many multi-touch patent applications from Apple, including advanced gesturing implementations for Mac OS X.

Sadly i've never even heard of this website. Had i've known i would've checked out all of these photos to have some idea of what the tablet would look like. Oh well, i'm still looking forward to the iPhone mostly. I don't care much for the tablet.

I too have never heard of this site until now. The suspense is killing me. I think this year will be the biggest year by far, for Apple once the tablet and 4G iPhones are released. I cannot wait!
