iPhone copied its smooth scrolling from Project Green?

James Gosling has posted a video of Project Green - the one that gave birth to Java. Considering the technology was developed one and half decades back, its really amazing to see what the little hand held device can accomplish. Full touch screen, speakers (yeah, but ugly sound theme), infrared and yes smooth scrolling in the touch screen interface. Is this where iPhone copied it from?

Watch the video and decide yourself. I think if Sun had patented it, it could have sued Apple!
