Macworld has a great article up today about the arrival of Skype on the iPhone (and soon the BlackBerry) and what the widespread availability of VoIP (voice over IP) clients -- which eschew the traditional phone lines to send talk via data instead -- means for cell providers like AT&T, Verizon, O2, Rogers, etc. who've made tons of traditional money billing us all by the minute.

Apple Sued Over Multi-Touch Patents

We all know Steve Jobs sculpted the iPhone from unicorn tears through a sheer act of singular will and hutzpah -- along with buying FingerWorks and winning a glove-full of multi-touch patents of their own along the way (which may or may not still result in several rounds of pugilism with Palm's Pre).
