    Desktop Amnesiacs :)

    Anyone here ever got in from the pub and tried to load their PC up. When it comes to Windows login - it takes you about 10 attempts to login because of Jelly fingers. Well Microsoft all love you folks They've just released their new desktop keyboard with FINGERPRINT recognition so you don't need to remember your password now

    Looks pretty funky actually for a MS keyboard, and is wireless as well

    Tried it. Kept getting this error message:
    "System has detected an unregistered user. You must reactivate Windows and all applications within 30 days to continue using them."

    You have been warned, this is a joke now, but give it a few years...

    It'll probably come in 3 days after Rave's cut the ends of his fingers off to avoid the govt identification scheme that came in 2 days before that.

    Yeah - you can allready get some quite good fingerprint readers although I wouldn't rely on it to login to your PC ... what if you get a cut or go on a boat for a couple of weeks!

    I'm sure you can type it in as well if you don't need the fingerprint recognition

    cherry keyboards have had fingerprint reading models for a while now, though they don't look as nice as that one.
