Interesting how this article seems to dismiss NFC just because Apple is not using it. But 2 stories below this one on the AI homepage, there is an article "Apple awarded patent for NFC-based cross-platform data transfer solution". Why would Apple waste time and money working on things that they think people will never use?
Will AuthenTec still operate under its own name and sell products to other companies, or will their products now be exclusive to Apple? What about other companies which currently use AuthenTec's products?
