I Invented Slide to Unlock?

Was rather surprised this morning to discover I invented Slide to Unlock. A former co-worker and friend saw the news and was wondering if I was the Jim McKeeth mentioned. Of course he, and a lot of other people, are wondering if I will be getting any money out of it. Since the patent is licensed to Micron, they are the owners of it now. It is exciting to be involved in something so huge, but crazy to effectively be on the sidelines still.

The patent in question is actually an continuation of a previous patent that was filed back in 2000.

I’d been watching the Apple vs. Samsung case with some interest (owning both Apple and Samsung devices) but now it got a whole lot more interesting.
