Mouse puts security at your fingertips

Built-in biometric reader

As fellow Craver Erica Ogg once noted delicately, leaving one's laptop unsupervised even for a necessary minute or two can be an exercise in anxiety. Yet we all must do it--at least a few times a day, depending on the number of lattes--and in the occasional rush we sometimes leave the most sensitive material on our screens.

Iogear has figured this out and come up with a way to secure a computer easily with its "Personal Security Mouse." It comes equipped with a fingerprint authenticator that obviates the need for passwords, according to Gizmodiva.

There are plenty of other biometric security devices , of course, but what we like about this one is its convenient placement on the mouse itself--which would make us far less inclined to forget to use it. Besides, another Craving colleague, Jasmine France, already favors Iogear's mini-mouse , so the company is one step ahead of the game as far as we're concerned.
