    Apple has just won the patent on using touchscreen gestures to login so it looks like either Microsoft pays royalties or this feature will go away.

    Thats so stupid. I don't really care for the use of gestures but thats ridiculous.

    Sure you can own a Frisbee but you can't throw it. I patented the idea of throwing the Frisbee. You can only throw the Frisbee, if its from Apple.

    Stupid companies, why don't you patent a product not the concept of how things are done. Next thing you know Apple will try and patent the use of our fingers period.
