Apple awarded patent for unlocking touchscreens
Digital Trends.com :
Apple might have just been awarded the patent to rule all other mobile patents, and made all future legal battles more interesting. As of this morning Apple is officially the only company that is allowed to unlock a touchscreen device by using a sliding motion. We see this used on Apple devices as the familiar "slide to unlock" screen, but almost every other touch screen phone or tablet on the market currently use some form of sliding to unlock the device.
Apple originally applied for the patent way back in December of 2005, but it did not appear on a device until January 2007 when Steve Jobs unveiled the original iPhone.
