    Shame, too. The good money is on Swype incorporating all of ShapeWriter's strengths into its product over time while SW stagnates, and down the road SW will be left an archaic product.

    This saddens me.

    This probably means they were infringing on some of Swype's patents, and since the official Swype is very close they had their lawyers send them a cease and desist. We can only hope.

    I just wish they'd put the microphone back into Swype.
