Greg Christie leaving Apple

segment: 

A new Apple continues.
His influence on Apple shouldn't be underestimated.

Greg Christie is listed as an inventor on nearly 100 Apple patents. On Tuesday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted Mr. Christie a patent for a way to unlock a phone on a touch-screen display. He has 31 more applications pending with the patent office.

He is listed as one of the inventors in the "slide to unlock" patent, one of the five features that Apple is accusing Samsung of infringing upon in the current lawsuit. — Wall Street Journal
