Whistle while you wee – Apple wins slide to unlock patent

Slide to unlock

The constant patent bickering between Apple et al will no doubt become even worse following news last week that Apple have won a patent for the concept of sliding to unlock.

See TechRadar’s “Apple wins slide to unlock patent” or ZDnet’s “Every Android device now infringes Apple patent: Slide to unlock

Personally, I find all this patenting of concepts rather ridiculous, a great way for lawyers to make money. Especially as it appears I will now have to whistle every time I go to the toilet…

I cannot afford the licensing fee for my bathroom door.
