With so many news outlets and Wall Street analysts focused on the home button containing the finger print sensor, let's see how many stories will be rewritten to focus on the display as the finger print sensor.

Still, I remember in the early days after Apple's purchase of AuthenTec, stories were focused on the "slide to unlock" area being where the finger print sensor would be located.

Then rumors from Asia pushed, pulled, twisted the home button over the display and the stories and analysts dropped the display for the home button.

Just in the past seven days, how many articles have been published by news outlets that the unannounced next iPhone was being delayed due to problems manufacturing the home button finger print sensor?

There were even stories about LG pushing up the release date of a new phone containing finger print technology just so it could say it had finger print technology first.

If it's fast enough to identify me by the time I finish the slide-to-unlock, that could be nice.

However if it fails to identify me more than 1% of the time, it will be incredibly frustrating.

I believe Apple wouldn't leave it unperfected. That would be a dumb move.
