If we're lucky we'll have the privilege of getting locked into an Apple owned world while they sue everyone else away!

Have you ever looked at that av-creator program caled 'Evolver' that is intended to create avatars useable in various virtual worlds? It always seemed an interesting idea to me. This doesn't have much to do with yer article but it popped into my head.
:-D

It'd be fun to stop messing with sliders and vetices and get some virtual clay under my fingernails.

unrelated, but I wonder if LL has considered putting their viewer in the Mac App Store. Could help get a few more signups.

Fom this and other recent "BS" patents I more get the feeling Apple is looking to making money from other companies' applications more then thinking of developing their own virtual environment/world.
A clue to this is their patent on using a wiping gesture to move things from one device to the other. Something we've seen before in a.o. Iron Man and Avatar.
Its easy money and not their own idea. Hence I call this "BS" patents.

"Bs" as Almost all that as an apple on it!

Look's more like a way of annoying Google in case they wanted to move a simplified Sketch-Up onto a tablet.
