Apple introduced the Multi-touch interface when the company unleashed the iPhone on us. UBS believes Apple has with this technology the basis to introduce new products across most of their offerings and multi-touch is as big as the iPod introduction in 2001-2003.
I am not sure if I would call multi-touch a mega-platform. It looks great, but it has to still proof that the masses can handle it. Apple will of course if it works adopt it for iPods and other devices to come. UBS still has a price target for the Apple Stock of $124. It is at $89 right now.
More details on the potential of multi-touch can be found on Apple Insider.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
