A recent Engadget post suggests that Apple may be licensing haptic (or force-feedback) technology for the iPhone; this would allow users to 'feel' button presses or other interactions with our favorite touchable UI. Immersion is the company speculated to be bringing this technology to the iPhone, as they've added this kind of feedback tech to the entire Nokia lineup.
Immersion had some interesting news of their own this week, as one of Apple's former executives, Clent Richardson, was appointed as Immersion's president and CEO. Executive swapping doesn't always lead to close collaboration, but it can't hurt.
