Apple Granted Patent For Touchscreen Gestures Unlocking [bbc.co.uk]
|Apple has been granted a patent on unlocking a smartphone or tablet using a touchscreen gesture. |
The application, which was filed in June 2009, covers a range of commonly used techniques including swiping and pattern entry.
As well as on the iPhone and iPad, such systems are built into Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.
The patent is likely to become another weapon in Apple's arsenal as it continues to sue rival manufacturers.

Somehow this reminds me of a longago Law and Order episode in which a DA stared at his boss and said in disbelief "You mean garbage has constitutional rights?!"
