lg logoHave you ever noticed that all the mobile payment systems have the word “pay” in them?

touch id macbookTouch ID is the fingerprint system employed by Apple on their iOS devices. Now if you’re thinking (like the rest of us) that Touch ID would make great sense on Apple’s MacBooks, it seems that the Cupertino company agrees. A recently published patent (via Cult of Mac) has revealed that Apple had at one point toyed with the idea.

As you can see in the diagram above, it shows a somewhat outdated-looking computer where built into its side, there is space for a fingerprint scanner.
