    Motorola had a camera-based, glass-topped fingerprint sensor 2 years before the release of the iPhone 5S?

    No. Not sure I said they did.

    Then don’t make facetious comparisons insinuating that Apple stole technology.

    You're purposefully playing ignorant right? Or maybe you don't read previous posts?

    A fingerprint scanner on a phone was not an original idea by Apple, even if their implementation is good. Where did I suggest any technology go was stolen?

    Hmmm.... I thought you said the implementation was bad?

    Just curious why if seems every time one company offers a feature or device in any way similar to that offered by another the only word used by a select few to describe it is "stolen". Simply being the first to offer something doesn't mean every one that follows else is therefor a thief no matter the changes, additions or improvements. :rolleyes:

    Makes it nearly impossible to have a level-headed intelligent discussion when a small handful of posters try to frame topics in black and white in an attempt to stifle the conversation. I'm pretty sure all our members are intelligent enough to recognize nuances instead of seeing only the extremes. It's a very disingenuous strategy IMHO and doesn't encourage logical debate or discourse.

    Just my 2 cents.

    For the record, I am not one of the ones using the term ‘stolen’ (and you did not say so).

     

    I want to address your larger point.

     

    Given the context and the history of Samsung’s seemingly blatant copying of Apple, including a growing and impressive list of court cases that appear to bolster that case, and given the fact that IP is a hugely valuable asset in tech, it appears perfectly reasonable – and intelligent – in an Apple-oriented discussion forum to keep reminding people of the fact that Samsung might be prone to ‘stealing’ ideas? (I prefer the term copying or appropriating IP, myself).

     

    PS: I see that t0ny (aargh... autocorrect) likes your post! Nice endorsement! <img class=" src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />

    No one has claimed this. Your make believe world where others have, however, makes you look foolish.

    I did infer that you were perhaps making a general point there about Apple's implementation of the fingerprint sensor, but if you're telling me that was incorrect, then sure, ignore the part of my post about the data. (Btw, I was not asking you to gather the data, but rather, wondering if you knew of any surveys out there that suggested it was a larger problem, that's all.) Perhaps you need to be the one to calm down.

    Why are you still posting?

    Shouldn't you be either:

    1. Re-setting your TouchID up and seeing if you can finally get working what everybody else already has.
    2. Taking your phone back to the Apple store where they will gladly replace or refund if you can prove it isn't working.
    3. Placing an order for an unproven, unreleased phone based on a single feature.

    You do realise that they don't force you to buy OR keep these things, right?

    I see. Childish name calling now is it.

    I'll leave you guys to continue
    purposefully misinterpreting posts. I get it, you love Apple. You really love Apple. I'm happy you found love.
