this is what annoys me, apple patents things that are pretty cool but in doing so they hardly use any of their patents and prevent other companies from using them as well. To me apple is just being greedy now, and i would like to see them use their patents for other uses than suing samsung

As the aritcle states, Motorola have used this technology before (Atrix). I smell another law suit coming even if its not filed by Apple.

no law suit will come sadly, because iPhone bought Autentech which is the company that made the fingerprint scanner for the Atrix... and most fingerprint scanners for mobile...
