Better hope the fingerprint scanner works better than iMaps...

I can already hear Apple saying... \"Your holding it wrong\".

"As if we didn't know."

Given the fallibility of our human senses, what can we REALLY know?

Motorola had the feature on their Atrix 4G.... I wonder if the iPhoo will allow two fingers to be programed like the Atrix . I had my right index finger and my sons' left so he can play games without bothering me every time it locked.
