Swype said to have been sold to Nuance for $100 million
The Seattle based Swype first launched its keyboard in 2008 and it will soon be on over 100 million devices. Nuance owns the rights to the T9 predictive text app that is still used on many featurephones today. Ironically, the T9 keyboard was developed by Cliff Kushler who co-founded Swype.
For those who have been under a rock somewhere, check out the video below on how to use Swype.

nowdays when a company cant make new stuff anymore they either sue the heck out of other companies or they buy them..there should be laws to prevent things like this...i hope apple dont get this patent otherwise it would be them that suddenly invented the swype
