Apple Granted “Slide To Unlock” Patent

Apple Granted “Slide To Unlock” Patent

Apple is constantly at war with its competitors, it seems, fighting over everything from software and hardware designs to termonology (e.g., “app store”).  It seems they’ve “won” one battle, over the “slide to unlock” system utilized on all iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads, and some android devices as well, as they’ve been awarded the patent for it.

This means that potentially Apple could prevent any non-apple products from using a similar system by taking them to court.
