Fingerprint Technology

Fingerprint Technology

Replace passwords with your fingerprint through this new technology from Microsoft. This has got to be one of the most useful pieces of hardware Microsoft has ever come up with. You still need to invent passwords, of course (most websites don't have fingerprint technology, after all), but now you can make them as complex as you want and not worry that you'll forget them. Just enter the password, touch the fingerprint reader, and you'll never have to remember that password again (well, that's in theory, of course).

The technology is available either as part of new keyboards and mouse devices, or as seperate fingerprint reader devices.

Even if you don't like Microsoft's apparent plan to conquer every technology-related industry, and this is another manifestation of that, you gotta admit, this one's a winner.
