Not true, they also developed Chinese (in fact they had voice and
handwriting recognition as well), but unfortunately they closed down
the lab in Singapore and have not updated the technology further.

Oh well, I hope you agree with me it's not easy to keep track of all the technologies
Apple has developed over the last 10 years. I just remember a few: opendoc,
cyberdog, newton, pippin, e-mate (beside Copland, of course).
