I'm quite interested in these new microsoft biometric products, as I recently saw the keyboard and mouse package down at the local PC World, and at
only about £70 it seems like a good deal.
The keyboard, in my opinion, looks quite nice (better than my budget one I have now) and the idea of being able to sign on without remembering
passwords and usernames is appealing from a practical point of view and also becasue I like my gadgets!
Will the implentation of this sort of technology make us more used to have our biometric information stored on file though? And is it a good or bad
Another concern is that your fingerprints are going to be stored on your computer somehow, I imagine this information is encrypted but how difficult
would it be for a hacker to gain access to the informaion for some form of identity theft?
