I like the Guest mode idea, that was kinda my thing when we first started hearing about the whole fingerprint scanners. What about kids and spouses using the phone unless you can have more than 1 "approved" fingerprint, or a guest mode as it sounds they did here. Would love to be able to replace most or all usernames and passwords on the web with the scan of my finger. If it's only for unlocking the phone then there's really nothing special and is just a gimmick feature.
