    Oh I think it's cool too. I just love how Microsoft buys out the real developer, sticks their own label on something, and cry's "eureka! We've developed something new!"

    You know they modded it so that it can be used with a Windows OS stablely, and also the developers went TO Microsoft to sell their idea.


    Also, the developers now work at Microsoft in different job fields. Just my 2 cents.

    Windows OS and Stable is an oxymoron. And no, the developers didn't approach Microsoft. Ever seen the movie Anti-trust? It's an excellent profile on good ole Billy Gates, you should take a peek.

    As cool as the idea that Bill Gates is a serial killer that steals code, I don't think I'd ever use a movie to base what I think of someone or how a company is. And Windows is as stable as anything else out there.

    PS: the picture/painting frames in that movie that changed based on who was in the room was awesome, I've always wanted to get one of those.

    lol.. I didn't insinuate he's a serial killer, but he does pilfer code. Or more accurately, he sees great ideas coming from other companies and either buys out the company, steals away their employees to work for him or simply has his staff mimic the creations of other more creative developers.

    Nice app, I'd like to see this sort of tech implemented in apps such as for Photo Viewing and even fro videos or docs. I could see this being very popular.

    turns out there is a easy way to change the image (however not gui...)
    in the /Applications/Multitouch.app directory, you will find one image wth a jpg ending (WTC_skyview.jpg)...
    simply copy and overwrite any image you want to this directory ( rename it WTC_skyview.jpg and copy it here)...
