RE: Most of those gestures aren't new

You noticed that too? Yeah just like Apple fans say, everything's a "gimmick" until it's put on an iPhone, then it's an innovation.

So when Android uses gestures, it's a pointless gimmick. But when Microsoft uses them, they do it right and it's NOT gimmicky. LOL ok...

This isn't fresh, new, or original at all.

The difference will be in how it's implemented, although I'm still not convinced it's not a gimmick. With the exception of what they outlined for the exploded live tile view, that sounds awesome. The GS uses the front camera and proximity sensor to implement it. Microsoft plans on implementing a mobile version of Kinect. Kinect should provide a substantially superior experience over the other.

But again, even if done better I'm not sure it's all that useful. Then again many said the same about the mouse wheel so we'll have to see.

Your bizarre efforts to crowbar an anti-Apple comment into a non Apple story earns you this gesture :)

Way to show everyone you aren't a hopeless fanboi by flipping someone the bird for using an analogy that happens to reference your precious Apple lol. Wow!

Tony, that was so high-brow I'm not sure I can keep up.
