This is unfair. Pinch to zoom is Apple! What is going on in this world? You can patent an idea because it doesn't exists then you make it real and you can't patent it because is common in all devices? WT...

Other than being off-topic, are you sure your facts are also correct? I haven't watched the whole Minority Report movie recently, so I don't remember if there are multiple scenes with the glove/screen thing, but looking at this scene on YouTube, there is definitely no sign of pinch-to-zoom. It's more "clap hands to zoom" at 0:27.
