Slide to Unlock? Patented!

The United States Patent & Trademark Office issued a patent grant to Apple pertaining to the familiar Slide to Unlock gesture. “To unlock the phone, I just take my finger and slide it across. Wanna see that again? We wanted something you couldn’t do by accident in your pocket. Just slide it across – BOOM.”, Steve Jobs said entertaining the invitees at the phone’s unveiling in January of 2007. ( 9to5Mac )
